Cornerworkers needed 3-3

I've got 3 spots open to cornerwork on March 3rd at Texas World Speedway.

Send me an email at tom@lstd.com if you want to trade your time for track time!

Deal is, you can ride all morning before lunch, cornerwork after lunch, and all you spend is your fuel (and whatever tire rubber you leave at the track... erasing chicken strips!).

I may be able to make special arrangements for people who are not able to ride at this track day so that you can earn a full credit to use on another date. I'd rather not, but if I don't get these spots full by Friday, I will. If you're a "noob", it would be perfect for you to watch an event and learn by seeing some folks on the track before you use your credit on a "C" (noob) group on another date!

I might even be able to provide transport to the track in the "pimp" hauler if you're riding, and definitely will have room in the truck if you're not riding.

Though I don't encourage it, if you earn a credit and don't want to use it, you can "sell" it to someone else to use.

Let me know asap if you're interested, thanks MotoHouston!

You have to do that 7 days prior to the event (cancel for a refund). I need some folks, but I'm not desperate- if I were you, I would keep your spot because I think this event is almost full (I think C and B groups are full...).

I only have one spot left anyway, I appreciate your volunteering, but I'd just keep your spot you have now so you can pimp that new paint job all day!

You guys better make sure and de-magnetize the ground magnet before you hit the track... literally! See me for instructions on de-magnetization. Funny thing, Swift-e was just talking about doing the de-mag before his unfortunate incident.

1 spot left for corner working.

Thanks MH!

Nah, it's a real thing. Now, go to the parts store and get me some muffler bearings, high-speed bumper bolts and 4 feet of phelopian tubing.

Seriously, a small 1" scratch in an inconspicuous spot of each piece of bodywork will do the trick most of the time.

I also have a ritual with new gear (all except helmets) where I walk out to the track and throw it down. Same thing, de-magnetizes new gear from the magnet!

No need, but if you just need a "sanity day" off work and want to come hang out, we'd love to see you.

Karen, I got your pm. If you want it, you have dibs since you hit me up first

If Karen takes it, there are two other folks behind her that are pending.

Thanks MotoHouston folks, you guys always come through and are great workers for us!
