If you can do one of these tasks, please post in this thread. Getting people to help with these tasks makes the entire day run more smooth, experience doing these tasks is good but we are happy to teach anyone willing to try. Work stations will have multiple drivers at each station, some new and some experienced in shagging cones, and working the radio calling in car #'s when cones are hit and red flag situations. BE ALERT at worker stations! Cars are moving very fast and alot can go wrong very quickly. Also, more eyes looking for situations and details make for a safer and more efficient event.
