        ^ I had one like this where the approach finish dripped down on the track and will scratch the new balls. Cover up anything that looks bad with duck tape and see if the problem goes away. I rolled the ball through the machine and caught it on the down sweep to separate the machine from the under lane track and front return.(you need a new clean ball)

            Could it be a bent nail in your kickback plate?

              foul light area too, anything upfront that has too long of a screw? I have found those by rolling a ball from the lift backwards toward the machines on the track

                  i'm thinking same thing, get a flash light and see if you can find a pile of ball shavings under there anywhere. Ball accelerators shoot the balls back so fast these kinds of marks usually come from slamming into something up near powerlifts. I found a matchbox car hidden under a powerlift last week causing this kind of damage. Some kid really hid it well.

                    Worn C-Tracks will cause the ball to hit the corners of the ctrack frames when going from the bottom to the top tracks I usually grind off the edges when I change the tracks
                    Keep an eye on it see if it does it again
