If your looking for a loamy track don't use Sugar.It makes the track ultra hard packed,especially when you mix a little lime in it.Its awesome if your looking for a
hard packed and grooved condition.Our track has held up 3-4 months.When the weather clears and we redo the layout,I will use this combo again.We had absolutely no problems with Bugs or Smell.Awesome results when its run dry.

only issue I saw with sugar was in onroad parking lot racing. The bees come from everywhere, you can sure get a good coat of guts on your cars.

You may want to look at the type of salt that is used to melt ice in the winter as it has calcium chloride in it. Calcium chloride is used on dirt roads to "harden" them thus no "Dust".Calcium chloride is a tad pricey the last time we bought some for your track was a group buy & was around $300.00 for 5 bags. One bag will do roughly about half of the track in Tampa (Lake Park). The price of the ice salt is not as much as the pure calcium chloride & comes in a smaller quantity bag but is cheaper & may not be as harmful.

This guy manages the track I'm talking about. I cannot believe how well the track has held up. Not even a rut at the end of the straight where everyone rails into the sweeper. I would have expected that to rut up very quickly but no. The sugar & lime is holding it togeather great and this is an outdoor track.
