Track Maintenance

The track has to be maintained between races. This is done by means of tractor and truck. The tractor drags a 'flail' of chains along, smoothing the sand for the next race. The truck is a water truck, lays down a spray to keep down the dust. Both vehicles rip around the track at the same time, occasionally in opposite directions. Which made for an interesting stunt show in itself for those that were watching.
