Yes, your base is damaged. It's got a cut and needs a band-aid..I'd repair it yourself.. It's not brain surgery! These scratches affect speed and if deep enough, snow snakes have been known to get in there and haul your sorry ass down!
No stitches necessary but I'd scrape the little curlies smooth and put some p-Tex on. Shops have black sticks if you want to keep the aesthetics up to par. After that, give her a good wax and she'll love ya for it.
Then again if you've got expendable income and is going to jib concrete tomorrow, forget it!!
