RACE DAY NEED TO KNOW
There are plenty of items to take note of to ensure a smooth and efficient race for everyone – so hunker down and read this whole post please!
Make sure you have registered online to be eligible to race. The deadline is 9:00pm on Monday before Tuesday racing so that we have enough time to prepare for race night. The registration link will change each week, so please use the 2020 SCHEDULE page each week to reference the registration link next to each date. We only post one week at at time. NOTE – You will not receive a confirmation email once the form is submitted.
Take note of the race schedule, especially the check in time frame. You must be checked in by 6:15pm in order for us to have enough time to do final race prep. It might not seem like a big deal to be late but it really throws off the final moto prep if even one person is late. If you are going to be late or can no longer make it – please let us know before 6:15pm!

A little help goes a long way. Some jobs are before the racing and some are after, and some are for officials – they’ll be marked as a Commissionaire position. If you want to volunteer, please sign up on line. Note – the volunteer registration link will change each week, use the 2020 SCHEDULE page and reference the link next to each date to Volunteer. We only post one week at at time.
