I was born into a construction family in 1970 and somehow became an asphalt paving contractor in the summer of 1988. It was then I began my career and experience in asphalt paving for the next 30 years in the Northwest. Over those 30 years, I examined, bid, designed and constructed everything from driveways to highways. I have worked hard to always be an innovator in the asphalt paving industry. My depth of experience in the industry had me accomplish many firsts; the first warm mix asphalt highway paved in Oregon, the first recycled asphalt shingle highway project in Oregon, and the first commercial porous pavement parking lot in Oregon.
In 2017 I sold my Asphalt paving business and started Asphalt Consulting Management, LLC with the goal of improving asphalt pavement construction and rehabilitation practices in the industry, and innovating new ways to extend the life of existing asphalt pavements. I always knew that potential improvements and advancements of asphalt technology were just beginning. In July of 2020 Asphalt Consulting Management was called on by Spring Mountain Motorsports to recommend and provide a product that would protect and extend the life of the asphalt corners on their racetrack. The corners on a racetrack are constantly subjected to high heat and friction from the tires of high-performance racecars and are, by far, the first part of the track to fail. Knowing there was nothing on the market to definitively solve the problem, I went to work in the ACM lab developing a solution. The result was Track Armor, a never before seen, highly durable, petroleum free, black coating that mimicked the friction of the existing asphalt. In November of that same year the first test sections were placed on the racetrack at Spring Mountain Motor Sport and Track Armor was born. The coating was met with rave reviews from all the instructors and members at Spring Mountain and is still protecting the asphalt pavements there today.
Very soon after a new formula was derived from the Track Armor development and testing for placement on parking lots, roadways and all pavements began. The project was geared towards those surfaces that do not endure the heavy repetitive traffic loading experienced by racetracks. This is Asphalt Armor. Asphalt Armor is a one-of-a-kind, patent pending, high performance, non-petroleum based product developed to protect your asphalt pavement from both environmental decay and everyday traffic. It was first placed at the clubhouse and administration building at Spring Mountain Motorsports in March of 2021.
TrackBond™ is an extremely durable high performance asphalt coating specifically designed to protect areas of extremely high traffic, heat and friction caused by high performance cars on asphalt racetracks. TrackBond™ was first developed to extend the life of the high wear corners on the racetracks at Spring Mountain Motor Sports. First placed in November of 2020 it is still providing the same protection and durability as it did on day 1.
TrackBond™ is most effective when it is placed within a few weeks of the track first being paved. It has the unique capability of protecting the asphalt pavement with a high-tech armor that is able to withstand the massive sheer stresses created from a hot racecar tire in a high-speed corner. Its unique formula perfectly matches the friction of the existing asphalt track, so your drivers feel no difference between entering or exiting the coated area of the racetrack. Since the corners are the first high maintenance part of a racetrack, you can expect many years of additional life from your new asphalt just with the use of TrackBond™.
TrackBond™ can also repair damaged racetracks. If your racetrack corners are showing significant raveling and wear from repetitive racecar loading AsphaltArmor™ has the solution. We have fill materials that can be placed in larger voids prior to the TrackBond™ coating application to help level out the corners of your racetrack and extend the life for many years.
At AsphaltArmor™, we know time is money and everyday your track is shutdown is one less day of racing. Track Armors proprietary, patent pending, blend can be driven on within 18 hours of placement. Let us coat your track and you will be driving on a new, smooth, Armor coated racetrack the very next day.
If you want the longest lasting, highest performing armor coat available placed on your asphalt pavement, call Asphalt Armor today. Why just seal coat your asphalt when you can TrackBond™ it?
