OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF "SPIDER" BARNETT, WHO PASSED AWAY THURSDAY JUNE 25, 2020.
Obituary and funeral arrangements are here.
Please note that there are some changes at the track. Everyone is asked to practice social distancing, of course. Even pit registration is different. Rather than the normal pit sign-in sheet, each person will have a separate copy of the waiver form(s) to sign. This is in an effort to minimize surface contact at the track. In addition, our insurance company requires an additional waiver relating to COVID-19 to be signed. Again, EVERY PERSON ENTERING THE PIT AREA MUST COMPLETE THESE FORMS. And they must be done every week. We highly recommend if you can possibly do so that you print them yourself and bring the signed copy to the track. Links are below. Also included are forms for minors...
RainedOut has now started charging for a subscription to receive text messages. If you had previously signed up to receive alerts from us, you should have received a message; or go to for more info.
6/12/2020 INFO FROM THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR...
The only spots that will be marked "reserved" in the pits will be the ones that have already paid or made arrangements to pay. As of right now there are 28 out of 40 that have paid or made arrangements to pay June 13th.
We will not hold up a spot under the assumption you wanted it again this year. Any spots not marked will be open, and will be first-come-first-served. The reserved spots in the middle rows will be marked with a cone and a small sign.
Parking spots are still available for the rest of the year. See info to the right or below.
Reserved parking for 2020 is now open and available.
Competitors that had reserved spots last year will have the opportunity to renew their spots for 2020. An image of the parking map is below with an "x" signifying spots that are unavailable unless they are relinquished. Also, 18-27 will not be available unless all other spots are filled. The registration form includes the rules for paid parking and information for mailing and payments. See below for links to the registration forms. Payments for reserved parking will be due by April 1st. Any spots not paid for by April 1st will be re-listed as available. Please be aware that reserved parking is not intended for personal vehicles.
See the new "FORMS" page - click HERE or find it under the HOME menu - for info/registration form. (There's also a pit diagram.)
Other things on the forms page:
