We are coming up on the date 2 years ago when we made a start on a big, much needed upgrade, adding 350 feet of brand new concrete race surface, with a proper base. Since then, we have been faced with many challenges. Ripping out a 20 plus year old seasoned 270 foot section of concrete/asphalt track created the “problem” of making a brand new surface the best we could. We knew it was going to take a lot of work. As we battled through year number one, we tried a number of things to make it better. In year number two, the battle didn’t get any easier. With everything under the sun changing, rising in cost, being scarce, and often a combination of some or all of those, we couldn’t pinpoint just one thing that was still fighting us. Other tracks faced the same challenges, from companies not being able to get normal supplies, changes of everything from manufacturing, distributing, shortages and more. After multiple talks, texts and sending pictures with Kurt Johnson, we made the decision to cash in on our WDRA discount and take another step in the process of preparing the best surface we can provide our racers. Kurt put us on the schedule of their version of the Eastern swing. After 2 days of working their Total Venue Concepts magic, we believe the struggle will be over. It was a very busy, stressful few days to watch bag after bag of concrete dust get vacuumed up and disposed of.
Thank you to Kurt Johnson, Total Venue Concepts, and Ralph Mabrier for the expertise. Also thank you to our employees Bob, Mark, Austin and Chuck for stepping up and putting in the time needed to complete this project. Also thank you WDRA for the partnership discount with Total Venue Concepts and all of our Sponsors who help make upgrades such as these possible. The 2023 season is getting more exciting by the day. Stay tuned for additional big news announcements, we have more coming!
In addition to the surface, a new piece of equipment was delivered by TVC to help speed up the process of removing broken cars. #totalvenueconcepts, #wdra
