Progress at the Del Mar Racetrack

Del Mar racetrack

The final day of the Del Mar Racetrack's fall 2014 race meeting was on November 30.  This was also the last day races were ever ran on Del Mar's Polytrack main surface, which has been used since 2007.  On Monday, December 8, workers from Kock-Armstrong General Engineering began removal of the 15,000 tones of Polytrack.

As February begins, crews are continuing to work steadily on the total renovation of our local Del Mar racetrack.  As of now, the project is estimated to be competed in March 2015.  Del Mar has been working hard to keep as much of the Polytrack out of local landfills as possible.  Through various methods, the Del Mar Racetrack has been able to give away about 9,000 tons of this Polytrack to training centers, farm and individuals in the Southern California area.  Not only did this help keep these materials out of landfills, but the Del Mar racetrack was able to save more than $1 million in trucking and duping fees.

The current phase of this project, which started on January 28, 2015, deals with the removal of the rock base underneath the Polytrack.  Currently, this phase is 65% complete.  The layers of rock and stones are picked up, crushed, and prepared for recycled use on several projects on the fairgrounds, including an upgraded storm drain system.

After the layer of stones have been removed, which is expected to be complete by mid February, the upgraded storm drain system will be installed between the outside rail of the turn course and the inside rail of the main track.  Grading of the main track will follow and then the roughly 17,000 cubic yards of fit will be be installed, completing this project by March of 2015.
