 You will need a valid drivers license,your entry money and a car.

You will need to empty your car of all loose objects. You will need to remove drivers floor mat unless velcro'd down. You will need a helmet snell 90 approved. Helmets are availible at the event to borrow

 At this time of year rain is a good possibility raincoat,umbrella small plastic container or tarp to cover things removed from car.

  The way it works is there are different run groups. One group drives the other works the track(resetting cones ect) You usually get 3 to 4 runs on the track or more depending on turn out. There are morning and afternoon runs.

Events vary, based on the organization and time of year; but most are run on Sundays and follow a very standard format:

  1. After a few weeks of planning, arranging for volunteers, etc., a setup crew will go out (usually the night before) and set up the course.
  2. Around 7:30am people will begin taking registrations for the morning session. People register, get work assignments (a short work session is required for ALL competitors), and get their car inspected by a tech. worker (for safety).
  3. After completing all of Step 2, competitors can go walk the course - to get a preview of how it will look as they drive it.
  4. Shortly after registration ends, a mandatory driver's meeting will be called. The meeting will go over safety issues, general rules and conduct, and any special instructions for the day.
  5. All drivers for the session will be split into 2 or 3 "run groups". The first of these groups will go put their cars in grid and get ready to run, while people that aren't running go to their work assignments.
  6. Cars from the first group run in the order they lined up in, running 1 lap each, cycling through the grid lines 3 or 4 times.
  7. Drivers and workers switch off, and the second group begins.
  8. Repeat steps 5 to 7 if necessary for a third group.
  9. Lunch break. Afternoon registration begins at 12:00pm. Trophies are awarded to the morning group during this time.
  10. Steps 2 through 8 are repeated for the afternoon session.
  11. Cleanup of the site and tear-down of the course is done.
  12. Afternoon trophies are awarded.
  13. Anyone that stays goes as a group to a nearby restaurant or bar and has dinner and/or drinks to celebrate a fun-filled day of racing



When in doubt power out.
