California Speedway is a 2-mile, low-banked, D-Shaped oval super speedway in Fontana, California. Oltmans Construction was contracted to construct two separate projects for the master plan. The first project, The California Speedway Support Buildings, was constructed using masonry with steel joist and metal deck roof structures. The project included approximately fifty (50) individual support buildings at a total of 360,000 s.f.; including: race control tower, souvenir buildings, ticket buildings, security buildings, an urgent care facility, 35,000 s.f. maintenance building, three (3) state-of-the-art garage buildings, three 2-story infield corporate suites including interior improvements, twenty-eight (28) sky boxes, chalet kitchens, concessions, 40,000 s.f. administration building, locker rooms/showers and nine (9) public restrooms. The second project was the California Speedway â Grandstand Expansion project, which consisted of the construction of additional bleachers as well as included three (3) additional retail buildings and an elevator tower at 4,200 s.f. Oltmans self-performed the concrete work around the race track and provided the foundation, slab on-grade for the support buildings.
The California Speedway was a Kaiser Steel Mill superfund site and the area below the pit buildings, built by Oltmans, has an environmental barrier condition.
