SDR in Reynolds announced Friday they are shutting down for two weeks (6/15 to 6/25) to re-pave (asphalt) the track. Will this track be faster or slower than a seasoned, worn track?

I did a VVT to LS3 swap 2 years ago, and they just tape the VVT solenoid wire back (some cut it which is shade tree IMHO) and turn VVT off in the tune file.
