Welcome to the grid! We appreciate your volunteering to help us to grid and release the cars onto the track. For your information the following are some of the procedures we will be following:
#1 Safety: You will wear a vest to identify you as a grid worker. You need to keep your eyes up and constantly look for cars entering the grid. Keep your head on a swivel, always looking around. Bear in mind that when there are several race cars operating, it gets very loud and it is difficult to hear when a car is nearing you. We supply you with water and some other goodies. The volunteer desk should supply you with ear-plugs, but we will have spares on the grid. We will be working some at night and everyone on the grid will have a flashlight. Again, #1 is Safety. We have some flashlights but if you bring your own, you will always have it.
Check-in: Each morning at the volunteer desk in the Gallery of Legends. This is important as the organizers need to know who is where to keep this running smoothly. You will pick up your meal tickets there, as well as any other info that is important.
Gate: If you are assigned to work the entrance of the grid you should know the following:
Grid: If your assignment is to make sure the car is in the right spot, you should look for the following:
Other Stuff: There are some radios issued but not enough for all. The two chairpersons will give instructions to the grid workers. Should you have a radio, call us if you have an issue. If you do not have a radio, find someone who does.
Ed Kohly and , along with the drivers, appreciate your time and efforts. Let us know how we can make your time on the grid safer or more fun!
