Yes this will work too.

We filled in cracks with sand and then rolled the mixture over the crack.

Did a nice job and the crack never came back.

Picture of the track with the paint/ sand mix (below).

Notice the gray area is the sand mix/paint the rubber gets in the track and there is no need for sugar water mixture anymore.

Well, I had left over paint and boxed it together then added black but I came
out gray color.

Once the paint/sand is down you can paint over with colors as seen in the photo.

You don't need a lot of sand just enough for traction.
I mixed two bags of play sand (HomeDepo) into a 32 gal of paint.

Took about 18 gals to do a basketball court.

Hope this helps.

You might also try asking the guys at debbies, they recently did a re seal of their track and it looks to have turned out awesome

Vp pane choice is a very good choice. Kind of like vht tbh. It supplies excellent traction throughout the whole day. It is also petroleum based so it rejects water and doesn't absorb drastically. Also when it rains the track dries out very fast.

Which product of theirs did you use? Local asphalt track is an old parking lot and needs a coating badly.
