Be a Race Official
Interested in helping put on club races? Races can't happen without a dedicated and talented field of Race Officials and we are always looking for more. "Race Official" sounds important...and it is, but it's very easy to become one. Race Officials are people who volunteer to staff positions at the track during race weekends. These people wave flags at the corners, help grid cars before the race, work the timing and scoring system, help register drivers and other Race Officials, throw the green and checkered flags, ensure the safety of the event, and more. All one needs to do is show up at the track and say, "I want to help."
See the Calendar page for the next Club Racing event
All specialties need help on any given race weekend. Click here for the Regional Administrators page. Each discipline (Flagging and Communications, Timing and Scoring, Grid, Registration, Scrutineering (tech inspection), and Starters) has a local administrator to help coordinate volunteer officials. They are experts in their fields (and several others, usually) and will be happy to answer your questions and help you on the road to being a race official. It's fun, exciting, and rewarding work!
