Track Surface Regulation Requirements
Dr. Mick Peterson, Professor and Executive Director of the non-profit Racing Surfaces Testing Laboratory will lead a discussion of pre-meet or seasonal inspection of track surfaces and daily testing and reporting for racetrack maintenance data. The test results, combined with the daily monitoring, will meet new requirements for racetracks. Reports, daily tests, weather and racetrack maintenance information can make use of a free database for racetrack operators to facilitate reporting to HISA. Data from pre-meet or seasonal inspections can be documented in this database as well as required daily track conditions including track moisture content, weather, and maintenance data required by safety regulations. Information about automated population data and new measurement tools can also help tracks reduce labor required for reporting.
