I finally figured out a quick and easy way to do the ribs on the curved and angled parts of the track by creating planes based off of points on the track profiles curve and then copy the sketch of the rib to each one. Then I used either a rectangular or circular pattern to quickly create multiple ribs at regular intervals.
Also, I'm looking into downloading a 3D XML viewer so I no longer have to post bad photos. You will hopefully be able to fly around the model yourself! Stay tuned!
