Bring a fan, this one is hot. It’s time for NCM!
Who would have thought that Kentucky is hotter than Texas or Georgia in June? Bring the ice and lots of water, I’ll have our Coolshirt tank running for everyone again. We’ve got another large field on a great track so the racing action should be as hot as the weather. Read on for event details.
Gates – The main gates will open at noon on Thursday. So if you get there early and want to drop off your trailer, have at it.
Paddock and Parking – The NCM paddock is huge. Like bigger than anything we go to. So space is not a concern here. Two things: 1) we ask that you do not park in the RV spots along pit road unless you reserved one of them through NCM. If you park there without a reservation they will ask you to move. And 2) if you reserved a garage, you get to park in the painted space in front of your garage. If you park in a garage spot and didn’t rent a garage, we’ll ask you to move.
Camping – Free, but bring a generator.
Test Day – NCM is hosting a test day on Friday. For info and to register go here: https://motorsportspark.org/events/ncm-test-day-champcar/
Transponders – If you entered a transponder number (or entered anything really) while you where registering we assume you’re bringing your own. Please verify that you have entered the correct number or that you reserved a transponder if you’re not supplying your own.
Tech – All cars will need to be tech’d for 2019 unless you’ve had your 2019 annual tech completed. Bring all your paperwork filled out and make sure you have read the rules. Swap cars with no paperwork will likely be put in EC. Tech opens at 1PM on Friday. Decals will be handed out at Tech and will be required to pass tech. Decal locations are shown in the BCCR appendix.
Registration – Make sure you tech first, then bring your yellow logbook and tech sheet signed by us directly to registration. Before you arrive, log in and check your driver roster for accuracy. Make any corrections ahead of time. If you are fully paid with the correct drivers, check-in is a 3 minute process. If you are not coming (work issue, car issue, etc), email me to let me know you will not be there.
Novice & New to ChampCar School – 5PM Friday in the Holley Scoring tower.
A reminder: read through and print out the Supplemental Rules for this event here.
