Kansas set to remove track inside Memorial Stadium, move to Rock Chalk Park

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas has announced plans to remove the track from Memorial Stadium, the first step in what the school hopes to be an eventual renovation of the football facility.

Earlier this year, the school unveiled the Rock Chalk Park track facility during the Kansas Relays. The new facility allowed the school to begin removal of the old track inside the stadium.

Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger said an anonymous donor provided the funding for the construction, which will begin Tuesday and take about six weeks. The track will be replaced by new artificial turf that will be safer and more aesthetically pleasing.

Memorial Stadium, which opened in 1921, is among the oldest college stadiums still in use.
