Racetrack Repair
February 2018

It was a little windy but we had a good group of volunteers (Friends of the Inyo and ES4WD members) and support people from the Park (including a three thousand gallon water truck). A previous effort to make a repair to the vehicle tracks on the Racetrack had failed and now looked worse than before. It was a small test area of about 10'x10'. The effort on this day seemed to work very well and included the following steps:
> Deeply rake out the tracks and surrounding area (about two inches deep)
> Tamp down the area to take out any lumps
> Trowel over the entire area to make it all smooth
> Lightly sprinkle water to dampen the entire area

The Park limited the number of volunteers so we only had four 4x4 Club members scheduled to help. Unfortunately Bob Ledterman and his wife were unable to participate due to death in the family the previous day. Therefore Mike and DeEtte were the only 4x4 Club members to participate.
The Park has identified three violators that put in the tracks and plans to pursue them. At this point they need to develop a satisfactory repair and appropriate costs. We were only able to do about 100 yards of tracks and there are many more.
