We have an opening for Dragway Operations Manager.
The awards banquet for the 2018 race season is scheduled for Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 starting at 6:00pm at the Independence Volunteer Fire Department. This will be a potluck event like the last few years. Bring a main dish, a side or dessert and ECD will supply soft drinks, coffee and misc.
We will be selling 50/50 tickets at the banquet for half the money along with other prizes like race entries and such.
Attention racers: If you leave the staging lanes with your car during eliminations for any reason without being told to do so by an ECD Official you will be disqualified. We ask that you take the most direct route that is reasonable to the entrance for staging lanes when your class is called. We reserve the right to use a card draw to pair cars in the lanes at any time. It has also been noticed that it is taking an excessive amount of time for racers to come to the lanes in the later rounds. If this trend continues we will add a time limit to get to staging and/or start pairing cars at the round of 8 or less.
We have a new procedure during time runs. To speed up the program during time runs when we have cars in one lane only we will be paring them up. The car at the head of the line will have lane choice and the car behind them will have the other lane. We know some will not like this but it saves time. If you really have to have your lane I would suggest coming to staging as soon as your class is called.
These changes should help us get you guys home at a reasonable hour when we have big car counts or a lot of classes scheduled. Other changes may be required.
