If you are not racing, but going anyways to watch a friend or such...

We do need cornerworkers. Workers get in free (have to be working) and a free lunch. Plus you watch the race closer than any spectators can (btw they are starting to not allow us to let spectators to the stations anymore due to insurance reasons). And you get to go out on a HOT track to pick up motorcycles. Plus you get to see what it takes to keep races going.

Long pants (preferably white. Remove any non-belt loops on painter pants)
White shirt (long sleeve, short sleeve your choice)
gloves (nothign red or yellow. Orange is best. Heat resistant even better)
good shoes. (you'll be standing all day and running around at times)
Bad weather gear (rain, snow, cold, heat. nothign red or yellow)
water and snacks (usually have water jugs, but its well water)

Show up at the pavilion at 7am and talk to Bill Ritger. You'll spend a half day with our trainer, after lunch you'll be sent to a corner with an experienced worker. You'll be able to work any CCS event then. Dont have to work both days nor every event, but there are times we are short handed. Plus theres usually a CW party after races are over and Nick Manske has an appreciation brat dinner for us every year.

Good post Rob. I think every racer/track day goer should give corner working a shot once or twice. It really makes you respect how important those people are.

Also, they can always use extra safety crew workers at AMA events and you get in free.
