Track Surface?

The building I work in used to be a bakery.
In the basement, there is a platform that they used to use to stage sacks of flour and stuff that would come in through the sidewalk elevator. The platform is around 40 feet long, and 12 feet wide. We believe it will make an excellent track, but we need to put something over the 2x6s that it's made from.
We're thinking of single-ply cardboard (white side up) with choroplast sides, to keep the cars fromm going off the edge.

But I wonder...what surfaces have others used?

I don't know why, but it seems to me that chalkboard paint might be good...

Do my pipe insolation idea, put some cork board down, then a layer of ozite or other track surface on top of it... then u can use the cork to 'PIN' the track walls (pipe insolation) down.

I was driving my Z on the brown side of a sheet of dry wall today drove pretty good, but not the best surface enough to slide but not go nuts.. still could do donuts on it though.
