We’re finally across the halfway point between the last race of last season and the first race of this season. That means its time to start getting into the details for the races this summer. The schedule and nightly sponsors are coming together (though there’s always room for more). On the personnel side we’re still looking for a few folks able to fill some open positions we have this year.
- Scorers & Lapboard Operator
- Assistant Flagman
- Gate Workers
- Speedway Officials
- Tshirt / Apparel Sales
Scorers & Lapboard Operators –
- Have a knack for detail? Like a fast paced way to make the races fly by? We’re needing people interested in being hand scorers during the races. We have state of the art computer systems to make lineups and keep track of what position everyone is in, but as a backup we always have one or two people keeping track of positions the old fashioned way – with a pencil and paper. I know, it sounds fun right? I know its not for everyone, but it is for some people. And if you’re one of those people, give us a shout and we’d love to make you a part of the team.
Assistant Flagman –
- Want to see the races from the best seat in the house? Then this job is for you! Help make calls, keep things flowing on race night, have power over the yellow lights around the track, plus many more benefits!
Gate Workers –
- Quick, how much does it cost for 2 adults and a ten year old to get into the pits? If you answered $60 (2X$25 +$10), you have what it takes to be a gate worker at the speedway. Bonus question – can you flash a wide smile when someone walks up who you haven’t seen in a week? Yes? Then this job is for you! Greeting drivers, asking how they did the night before, getting to know what kind of pickups they drive or what they do for day jobs during the week, being the first to hear gossip and results from Friday night’s races – all benefits of working at the pit gate at the speedway. Need folks for the main pit gate that’s open until race time and also for the back gate that is open all night. So maybe you’re a family member who gets drug along to the races but you’d rather spend your evening reading a book on your iPad. We’ll give you a perfect place to do just that, and we’ll even hook you up with the wifi password for the blazing fast wireless Internet we have.
Speedway Officials –
- The backbone of putting on a good show for the fans and drivers. Being a corner worker, helping make accurate calls quickly, getting in on all the behind the scenes action at the track. A couple folks retired or are choosing not to come back this so in need of a couple new officials. Prefer to find someone with a nickname of Eagle Eye, but that isn't a requirement. A sense of humor, the ability to take the situation seriously but not too seriously, and wanting to be a part of the second fastest sport (again, the drag racers have us beat) in town are requirements though.
Tshirt / Apparel Sales –
- Last but certainly not least – though the track promoter’s Carhartt farmer jeans and nerdy looking hiking boots scream ‘I’m the king of fashion,’ he secretly would like help in the area of tshirt and apparel sales. So if you have good ideas for shirts or novelty items we could sell on race nights let us know. We’ll gladly give you a cool job title like ‘Director of Novelty Sales’ and let you go to town.
This is shaping up to be a fun and exciting year at the speedway. More race nights, the traditional Labor Day Duel races are back, the Dakota Classic Modified Tour Championship, 2 NLRA Late Model dates, the Stock Car Stampede, its going to be awesome. We hope you’ll want to be a part of it!!
If you want to be part please contact Tim Baldwin or Keith Veil and let them know.
