Amen, I have been using it at 301 Raceway and it is awesome.

sugar water is what our track uses...
not sure of mix ratio specifics.

granted we are not spraying it we have an "applier" that dribbles a 4' wide path roughly. works very well.

we in the kansas city area also use the same as lincoln only we spray ours i believe that we mix 30lbs of granulated sugar and 2 2litre bottles of orange soda and 2 2litres of root beer to 50 gallons of water and spray it on the track we stir it and add the ingrediants as we add the water if you need a little more traction add a few more bottles of soda 1 or 2 of each flavor should do we've been using this for 10 to 20 years in the heart of america series

the formula is 5 gal. methonal,32 oz. mtn dew suryp,32 oz. castro oil . the methonal is a thinning agent, it is hard to find and is not cheap. i am looking for something else to replace the methonal .
