Speedway Clay Analysis and Consultation
Jones Geological Services has been involved in analyzing and consulting
speedways on their racing surface for 10 years. We have managed to work
with owners, promoters and track preparers on improving the racing
surface for the safety of the drivers, stress on racing equipment and
the enjoyment of the spectators. We know that dust is a part of the
racing atmosphere, but excessive dust can be reduced. We believe that
these racing conditions can be accomplished by using the right clay and
not using man-made products.
Services we provide:
Determination of sand/silt/clay ratio and mineral composition
Plasticity and moisture stabilization and recommended use of the sample
Up to 2 samples/track - $150.00 (need about a pint-size container for
At least 2 visits to the speedway after weekly grading is
completed and survey the elevation of the track to determine amount of
clay removed. Usually conducted in late spring and fall to establish a
year loss, but can be conducted per your request. Call for pricing.
On Track Analyses
Our recommended service that best benefits your facility where
we take moisture and compaction readings at designated times of the
racing program to “read” how the clay is performing relative to weather
conditions. As part of this we observe the track preparation procedures
and performance of the clay during the program. A consultation report
will be forwarded to you upon completion.
Call for pricing.
Available Local Clay Resources
With this program, we will locate any available clay resources
within your area and conduct the clay analysis from each site and
prioritize the quality of each clay for their use on a racing surface.
