Thanks for your input but as the post states I am building an indoor carpet track I already have an outdoor dirt track and we do use the drain pipe that works wellthe cheapest would be use fire hose. It lays nice and flat and can be rolled up when you are done.
Garden hose will work. People fill it with sand to help keep it in place.
One of the nicest I have seen is square PVC drain pipe. they have angled fittings and 90 deg fittings for it.
Round PVC cut in half with weights screwed to the inside works well also.
There is the old standard wood rails also. You use 2 8 ft sections of 1 X 4 or 2 X 4 with 12" 2 X 4 spacers in between. You have one spacer in the middle, one on each end. On one end you have the spacer stick out 6 " (male) and on the other end have the spacer set back 6 " (female) then they can interlock. You screw them together with drywall screws for a nice solid rail. You can make angled sections also. If you use 1 X 4's this makes for light and easy to move sections. They stack and store well too. I would recommend painting them before you assemble. Then they last a LONG time even if you have to store outdoors.
Hope this helps.

Yeah most of that and yeah I used to race on Josh's track I was meaning more about the hose thing but thanks do you know wher I could get that pvc tube short of buying it from Calandra???I am talking about Carpet. If it is a permanent facility, 3" square PVC works great. World Champion Josh Cyrul used it for years at the track he owned in Michigan. Now it is being used at a local hobby shop that bought it.
The hose suggestion is if you want to try to do it inexpensively.
The boards are commonly used at both indoor and outdoor On Road tracks.
Thanks and that is a great price I am placing my order now!!!I'm assuming you'll want the Hook type for the entire roll.
