Ecuador's team is no big surprise, the two Lapenttis, plus Campozano and Avellan.

Is this surface available? Asphalt

I thought you could only pick those that exist on the tour.

You're right that you can only pick surfaces on the tour, but I think that it qualifies as a type of Hard court, and that the ITF doesn't differentiate between subtypes. At least, I don't know of any tournaments on tour that use Asphalt, but it's clearly allowed. It is a bit of a minor mystery to me as well :shrug:

Also, it looks like, at least from the DC website, that this is the first ever Zone I or higher tie on the surface, which is an interesting choice.
