I went to lay down my track and a few of the tiles were bowed upward. The F1 had a fight with it and lost. Can someone tell me out to get the bow out of the tiles?

You can bend them lightly in the opposite direction. Also they should smooth out after 20 minutes or so.

i store my tiles in a closet so they tend to get deformed. i lay them out on the floor a couple days before race time and they always flatten out.

you can speed up the process by leaving them on a warm floor or sunlit patio.

lay them out in the sun on a flat surface. The heat will help flatten them out.

If you have the room, the best way to store them is to stack them. Check out the picture I've attached.
