Corner working for the CMRA is a great way to spend a weekend. If you enjoy lots of action, great racing, and fun people, we have a spot for YOU!

A typical day starts at 6:30 am at corner worker check-in. This is where we get you signed in, assigned a corner, a radio, t-shirt, and the necessities you will need throughout the day. Around 7:15 am, all of the corner workers will have a short meeting to go over procedures, flags, and equipment operation and answer any questions you might have. By 7:45 am we will truck all corner workers to their corner. On occasion we allow you to drive your vehicle, weather conditions and safety permitting. The race day starts with practice around 8:15 am, and cannot begin until all corner workers are in place, so please come prepared. Throughout the day you will communicate with Race Control about “events” in your corner and assist racers. Depending on the day you work, the schedule will vary, but generally speaking lunch is at 12:00 pm (provided by the club) and the day doesn’t end until sunset.

What We Provide:
• Water
• Lunch
• Canopy
• $80.00 per day
• Free weekend gate pass
• A Great Experience!

What You Need To Bring:
• Chair
• Cooler
• Snacks
• Appropriate weather gear (watch the weather and plan ahead!)

Detailed weekend event schedules are posted on the Schedule Page (http://www.cmraracing.com/content.php?15-2017-Schedule&tabid=118). You can post your request to work as soon as you know what works best for you. Please post only once. Space is limited at each track so sign up early. If you commit to a particular day, PLEASE show up!

We depend on corner workers to get the racing started on time. We Can’t Race Without YOU!


PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP TO CORNER WORK ON THIS THREAD. EACH EVENT HAS IT'S OWN SIGN UP THREAD.

I will be driving from Louisiana on Friday night from Louisiana to race Hamlett on Sunday. I will not arrive to the track until +/- 5 am Saturday morning and I still have to corner work to fulfill my prov-nov duties. Can my wife corner work half a day for me on Saturday, and me work the other half so I can knock out some of my corner working obligations?

In the DFW area, we race at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson. Cresson is 25 miles southwest of Fort Worth on Hwy 377. We will be there July 27-29 and then again August 17-19.

Hello, where can I find more details on the Air fence option? Corner working is well documented, but what all is involved with air fence? What time do you have to arrive to tear it down? About how long does it take? Any special tools or equipment? I ask because I am considering racing on Sunday morning, is it feasible to race and volunteer for air fence same day?

thanks

Hi Jason,

Sorry for the delay in responding, but we were all at Hallett this past weekend. Please note that contact information for those working for the club can be found on the Contact Page here: http://www.cmraracing.com/content.php?6-contact&tabid=121. Walter and I can both be contacted on a race weekend via the phone numbers listed on the website.

In answer to your questions, thanks for asking about where to find info about Air Fence tear down...we'll need to get that posted up!

Air Fence tear down happens immediately following the conclusion of racing on Sunday afternoon. Ryan Rutkowski, the club's outrider/assistant Race Director, handles the coordination of Air Fence set-up and tear down, so you would report to him at the end of the day on Sunday.

Depending on the number of pieces of Air Fence deployed and the number of helpers to tear down, I believe it takes @ 1 hour to tear down and get it wrapped up to be loaded on the trailer

No special tools required...a pair of gloves may be helpful but not required.

It is absolutely feasible to race on Sunday and then help with the Air Fence.

For Prov Nov requirements, two Sundays of help with Air Fence count toward one day of the corner working requirement. The other day of corner working would have to actually be completed by the Prov Nov to count toward their requirements.

Other folks who volunteer to help tear down the Air Fence receive compensation in the form of cash or weekend gate passes.

Again, sorry for the delayed reply. Thanks for asking the questions so we can get the info posted. On a race weekend (or during regular business hours) please feel free to contact us via the phone numbers listed on the website.
