Angela and I are looking forward to the 2013/2014 racing season at Red Mosquito raceway. I have some projects that I would like to get done at the track. Take a look at my indiegogo crowd source-financing project. If you can like, share, and donate that would be awesome!

Thank you!
Monti

I'm still waiting to see more on-road guys to show some love <3 !!!!!

The oval guys race once a month and are destroying you....

Also, still looking for a lost RDX.

With just 5 days left we are getting down to it. Right now we have raised over 1100$ and have started looking for paint. I can't wait to get all the improvments done, the place will never look better!

Hey Monti,

Would you be willing to outline the procedure and tools you're using to surface the underlying concrete? I've been to more than one carpet track that could use this type of work.

Andrew,

Hire a professional! Haha

There is a company that does specialty work out here in my area and I had them do the work. A concreate company that does work grinding seems for warehouse's that run forklifts would be a good place to start. This type of work can't be done on your own and you cannot rent the equipment. In my case I have a few expansion joints that rose up over the years and I had them ground down. This work is very expensive and runs me about 400$ an hour to have done. In total I have about 5hrs of floor grinding in my track. If a track needed to have an entire floor done, I would say spend the 5,000$ to build a sub floor.

This Indiegogo campaign has helped raise the last two hours of work I needed done (which is done now) and a special thank you goes out to all those who have donated.

I still have 4 days left to raise the rest of the funds!

With less than 27 hours left in the indiegogo fundraising campaign, if you have not donated yet and want to, time is running out!

Please share to get the word out, even a dollar makes a difference.

Thank you,

Monti & Angela

I have purchased the new boards for the sweeper and also in some other areas of the track. These new boards will help with maintaining a great look, car friendly, and keep the lay outs smooth and flowing.

Only 7 Hours left to donate!!!
