    • I would be listening to that guy 110%. You don’t wanna bandaid that pipe you want to fix it right and forget it ever happened. Might cost more now, but the downtime and same repair needed in the future will cost more man ✌️

  • REVENUE GENERATION FOR TRACK REPAIRS IDEA- I have a proven revenue strategy utilizing asphalt cut into brick sized pieces or just use new masonry bricks. You could Cut as many as possible from the asphalt but I would scrap or sell the pieces of torn up asphalt and get new bricks for this idea. You sell the masonry bricks to donors. The new brick would include an engraved donor name one name per brick to be installed at the track in a strategic location could be sidewalk at entry, a wall, strip at starting line as wide as bricks sold required(premium cost if on the track itself)install like the Brickyard Track” Again premium track donors on actual track others could be at the entry of facility or other strategic location at the facility. Bricks purchased by donors could go for 1,000 in track 500 at entry and 100 other locations people that love this old track and want to see it up and running like the old days will pay up to help you make it happen and you have the ability to thank them and document their help for the life of the track with the bricks. Around a new flag pole is a great location too. This revenue generator has been used successfully at new and renovated college and high school football stadiums and new schools projects. I have managed the construction of several of these facilities over the past thirty years often we did not leave enough open concrete walk or entry at the stadiums to fit all the bricks purchased and had to remove more concrete walk etc to fit them in to allow for future brick sales we started installing several hundred blank bricks that could be removed, engraved and reinstalled over time when donors wanted to add their name normally one time per year new donors are added. All you need to do is pick a brick type, color and size]. Collect donor orders for a set time (open once a year for three months) once year order engraved donor bricks the entire lot be it 500 or 5000 ship to various companies that will engrave the brick purchased and drop them at the site ready for installation. If the entry to the track needs renovated flatwork you can kill two birds with the brick donor funds going to renovations and a new dressed up entry. Also, as mentioned could add a brick strip on the actual track for major donors which are often local folks that want to show their support and keep the track alive for future generations. Not to get off track no pun intended but you can have advertisers logos engraved on large masonry bricks 12”x12” or 24x24 and incorporate with the bricks. Many businesses in the area or nationally based firms buy them and you can engrave just about any logo these days. Hope it helps great to see those old tracks saved I would buy one. Best of luck.

  • I do this type of work all day everyday. I would have saw cut the asphalt and dug it up, removed the old drain. Grade flow line and rock with 1" rock. Next day connect drain and back fill, and compact. 2 day job with 3 guys.

  • I don't know how big of a pipe that is, but instead of cutting the entire road, they have a service called a "driveway bore" - They use a special machine to create a channel with very good precision under roads, driveways, etc. There are services local that do it, and you can even rent it locally to you at Sarasota C.E.D (Consolidated Electrical). A little late, but just sayin'

  • He is ABSOLUTELY correct. This way, even if the pipe fails under the grass, you will not be tearing up any more asphalt because of that pipe. For at least 50 Years. Done deal.

Although I live nowhere near you, I always try to to give any of my business two people that helped out my local FIworld channels.. he is good people for donating not only his equipment but is off time for a good cause. Hope you get this all sorted out, definitely love your channel and what you do. Stay safe and God bless

  • At 3:11, it looks like the formation and base course has washed away. What happened to the drainage when the land was prepared before the formation was laid? Timber under the formation shows that the preparation was non existant.( A geo radar inspection will indicate what is under the base course)
