Barriere produced and paved nearly 80,000 tons of asphalt (4,700 truck loads) for a once-in-a-career project for NOLA Motorsports consisting of a 1.3-mile go-karting track, a 2.75-mile road course (with a future additional 2.6-mile track), and a 7.5-acre autocross pad, as well as numerous parking lots, roads, and work areas.
