Swingarm repair.

Can anyone tell me what the purpose of the cardboard like material is that is inside the tubular parts of the swingarm? I'm trying to repair a section of the brace that had a hole ground through it during a landscaping expedition. Found the material when starting the repair after cutting the damaged to be replaced section out of the swingarm.

Now that that repair has been made and the brace has been section should I inject a little foam insulation or something else in there or leave it empty? It is a track only bike.

Cant say for sure....I am sure there was some magic frequency they were looking for to keep weld stresses under control.
