The sinkhole is in an area that was built over a landfill. The hole developed Friday night following all of the rain last week from remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole.
The sinkhole is the result of a deteriorated pipe that was installed underneath the landfill about 35 feet below the surface of the ground. The sinkhole, however, does not affect the 1.5-mile racetrack.
During the dig to find the damaged pipe earlier this week, workers found a copy of "The Charlotte News" newspaper dated July 16, 1977.
The headline on the paper was "North Korea Releases Crewman" and focused on a surviving American military pilot and the bodies of three crewman whose helicopter was shot down over communist territory.
The paper also contained a movie review of "Star Wars" which was released in theatres of May that year. The article highlighted a relatively unknown actor who the author said may have a bigger and brighter future ahead of him. That actor was Harrison Ford.
During the dig on Wednesday, crews also found a clear, 2 liter Coca-Cola glass bottle, and a step ladder.
On Thursday, repairs continued on the giant sinkhole.
"All the new pipe has been placed 35 feet below the surface, and today, crews put concrete around the joints, laid more gravel around the pipe for reinforcement and have begun the packing process to cover up with dirt," Cooper said. "There's definitely still a sense of urgency to get the repairs completed and repave part of the area with new asphalt before next week's Bank of America 500."
