The Transformation Of Berlin Raceway From Asphalt To Dirt

Berlin Raceway in Marne, Mich., a well-known asphalt track for four decades, has been covered with more than 300 truckloads of clay for the running of the historic Keyser Manufacturing ‘Down & Dirty 100’ presented by NAPA Auto Parts this weekend. The $20,000-to-win World of Outlaws Late Model Series event kicks off with practice on Thursday (Sept. 20), then continues with time trials and heat races on Friday night (Sept. 21) and B-Mains and the 100-lap headliner on Saturday evening (Sept. 22).

The dirt-laying process began last week and continued for three days — a project captured by Randy Ellen’s time-lapse photography that can be viewed by clicking on the video above.
