cornerworkers needed! Ridesmart TWS (Texas World Speedway) 5-26

Just talked to dave wonders about cornerworking half the day and riding the other half. He said they need a few cornerworkers, either full day or half day. I want to work the AM and ride the PM sessions but they need somebody to work the PM session. Any takers?

I would help but I will be at GSS. Best wishes with filling the spots... corner workers are important.

I hope there's enough corner workers to put a least 2 in the problem areas like the Horseshoe, chicane, T1, and T4. Please try to put 2 in T1 because sometimes the one corner worker can't see the fallen rider if they ride off the track and fall (the runoff area drops off or sometimes the corner worker is too lazy and sits all day, if they sit, they can't see the entire runoff area). The reason I'm ranting about this is because this is a holiday trackday which means alittle more traffic on the track and the non-experienced or semi-experienced track riders will be out in force. With that said, some of the experienced riders may get inpatient and make some bad decisions with bad results. I may come out to help, broke collar bone and all. At least I can be a set of extra eyes out there.

Points taken. I will definitely relay the message to management. I know what you mean, if you do not stand up or get onto the wall at cw stn 2, a crash at T1 may end up sliding down the far side which is a dip.

Thanks. C u there.

You bet. I'm looking forward to it. I've never worked the corners so it'll be a new perspective. Wish I could ride but I have to work that morning. See ya there.
