EBH Engineering has a long standing relationship with the City of Great Bend. In conjunction with the City and Sunflower Rod and Custom Association dragstrip, this project was successfully completed in time for racing season. This was a unique project for the team and a type of project you don’t get to work on everyday.

“It is a special concrete mix that the NHRA said they wanted,” said Joel Krosschell, EBH Project Manager. “We will be testing for the correct concrete and flatness.” Profilograph testing was also performed to measure the surface’s flatness.
