GUIDE FOR RACERS


AT THE PIT GATE

When you arrive at the track, purchase your pit passes and pay any required entry fees for your event.

MINORS RELEASE

MINORS RELEASES WILL BE AVAILABLE AT PIT GATE. RELEASES MUST BE SIGNED BY PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN. (CLICK HERE FOR FORMS.)

IN THE PITS

Upon arrival, you will be directed to an available pit space. Our regular pit area is relatively small. Due to the large number of competitors expected, we may have you pit at our Dirt Track next door (especially for larger trucks and trailers).

In our regular pit area, a large number are racecar and gear only. These work especially well if you have an open trailer or small enclosed. If you can work with this arrangement, please let our parking staff know when you arrive. You would then unload and park your tow vehicle in the North dirt lot, the far East access road, or next to Pit Gate.

Traffic in the pits runs CLOCKWISE at all times and is limited to 5 MPH.

TECH

Please take your car and personal safety gear to the tech shed for pre-race inspection.

TRANSPONDER

ACQUIRING YOUR TRANSPONDER: On each race day transponders will be distributed in the tech area. A payment of $20.00 (CASH ONLY) will be due at that time as well as your driver’s license which will be held until the unit is returned. At the end of the race day, transponders must be returned, at which time your license will be returned to you.


MOUNTING YOUR TRANSPONDER: Transponders MUST be oriented correctly and placed in the correct location on the car to score properly. The transponders are directional and must be placed as indicated on the device to function properly.

1) Because the signal is projected from the bottom of the transponder, it must be mounted vertically (serial number readable from side of car)

2) Transponders should be Zip tied and or taped in place to ensure a secure mounting to the car. Transponders that flop around or move could result in erratic scoring and possible position loss. Additionally, any transponder dropped on track or otherwise damaged as a result of improper mounting procedure will be charged to you. (Racing incidents not included)

3) Transponders must be located with no obstruction to the ground, and in front of rear bumper but behind rear wheels. On enduro cars, a great place to mount is the muffler heat shield. Just drill two holes slightly wider than the transponder and Zip tie in place through the plastic loops provided on the transponder.

PAYOUT

Cash Payouts after your main event will be available at the snack bar located outside of turn 3.

CONGRATULATIONS!

You are now ready to hit the track!

Practice times, Mandatory Drivers meeting times, and the day's schedule of events will be posted on the tech shed.

MOST IMPORTANTLY--BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!
