Sacramento State has unveiled a brand new $1.4 million track, one month before hosting the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
The new surface is regarded as one of the best -- if not the best -- in the world right now.
"It's the nicest and most amazing track I've ever been on, and I've been on quite a few," Steve Hammond with the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau said.
It was financed through CVB, hotels and event revenue will pay for the rest.
The track championships run June 25 through June 29 and could generate millions for the local economy.
The state-of-the-art surface could also be a draw for other big events, like NCAA competitions.
