The Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, KY has been hosting NASCAR and ARCA racing events on its 1.5 mile track for over a decade. Over 360 squares (36,000 sq. ft.) of ballast needed to be removed from a single-ply EPDM roof, and the contractors knew this was not a job to try to do by hand.
This structure was particularly cumbersome as there were dozens of pieces of roof top equipment that needed to be navigated on two separate roofs measuring 37’ x 350’. Moreover, there were very limited options where RK could effectively ‘stage,’ or set up.
RK used specialized equipment to access all the work areas, including over 400’ of vacuum line, which allowed the project to be completed quickly.
In fact, having such specialized equipment not only allowed RK to remove rock from hundreds of feet away, but also minimized the labor required for the job which in turn created a safer and cleaner worksite. The project ran smoothly and was completed in less than three days.
