Be closer to the action than spectators (sometimes reaaalll close )

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Every racer and every trackday rider should do this at least once. Corner workers, EMS and track staff are the people that make events happen. They deserve a lot of respect in my book.

I'd like to thank all of our corner workers at ever track. Thank you.

I've worked at several tracks and had some great times with good people who corner work.

Working the AMA superbike events is the most fun.

Werd. I always give the corner workers a wave on the cool down lap or a thank you in the pits.. "no wave, no save" they are the first people to you in a crash, be VERY thankful they are there.

I like working pickup on the outside of turn 6 at Road America when the track is wet. Lots of crashes there, especially when they get their rear tire on the paint just a little and it spins up and spits them off.
