11:30 AM Mandatory Driver Meeting - if you want to hit the dirt track
- you gotta be at the meeting. To be held at gate where cars enter to get on the dirt track.
NOON Cars allowed to start dirt laps. Maximum 3 laps per car. Cars will be assigned numbers
and this will determine your place in line. Your number is based on volunteer status, pre
registrations, and then first come first serve. (Another reason to pre reg) If you miss your
turn, you gotta wait til the end of the day. Cars will be staged in 20 car increments. If you
are car number 133 you will have to wait until the #120-140 are called. Obviously not
everyone will want to run their cars on the track, but if there are 12 cars out of 20 that want
to run, then we have to wait for those 12 to get done before we call up the NEXT 20 cars.
So it will go from #1-20, 21-40, 41-60, 61-80 etc. Cars can get back in line to run again and
again and again - but we gotta be good kiddies and take turns!
