Get Involved




The AVRG would welcome anyone who is not a member of SCCA, or a SCCA member participating in activities other than road racing, to join us at HMRC and discover what it is like to assist in putting on a race. Trial memberships will be provided for non-members and any friends who might wish to join you in a race weekend. There are several specialties needing assistance. In order to help you decide where your talents might best fit, following is a brief description of the specialties as well as a name you can contact for further information.

MIDIV Volunteer Program

Flagging and Communications (F&C)

This specialty (also known as Corner Worker) is one of the most critical and important jobs at the track. You will be part of a team that is in control of a part of the race circuit. Your basic responsibilities are the communications to the operating officials through a radio system, and to the drivers on the circuit with the use of flags. As a team member, you will also be responsible for aiding any driver or drivers who may be having difficulty near your corner station. This may mean helping a driver who has a mechanical problem get to a place of safety off course, or responding to a critical incident involving a driver's immediate safety. If you enjoy being outdoors and being "up close and personal", this is the place for you.

Timing and Scoring (T&S)

You will be part of a team responsible for timing and tracking each car that is on the track, whether it is in a qualifying session or in a race. The timing of a car during qualifying determines the position a driver starts in his race. Tracking or scoring determines finishing position. Lap times and finishing positions are critical to a driver who is competing for points in his series as well obtaining crucial sponsorships. If you cannot work outdoors, or want air-conditioned comfort, this specialty is for you.

Technical Inspection (Tech)

If you want to see racecars up close to see what makes them tick, then this is your area. It is helpful to have a mechanical understanding of cars, but not entirely necessary for each team member. Tech is responsible for confirming that cars are in compliance with the specified rules. This may encompass safety items, specified weight, modifications to the drive train, suspension, etc. Tech inspectors also conduct inspections on racecars throughout the year at various locations.

Grid and Pits (Grid)

The main duty of the grid team is to put the racecar in its assigned starting position in the pre-staging area (the Grid). Other duties consist of checking the drivers for proper racing attire, seeing that the car has the proper tech sticker for the event, and alerting drivers as to the amount of time before their respective race. This specialty affords you the opportunity to meet the drivers and to see the cars up close. If called upon to work in the "hot" pit area, your responsibilities will be to alert all personnel of any incoming racecar and to give assistance to any disabled car whether it is a mechanical failure, or possible emergency to the driver or car.

Ready to get involved?

If you are interested in joining us at Hallett to help with the races, please contact the listed individuals or any officer in the NEOKLA, Oklahoma, or Wichita Region. Arrangements can be made for you to work in the specialty of your choice. You will then be able to work other racetracks that conduct SCCA road races such as Heartland Park, Topeka. If you want to just come out and enjoy the weekend and look each area over before making a decision, please contact us.
