Anyone receive their refund check yet? You know, for the membership
fees paid in advance. Sports teams are refunding season ticket holders
after all. I’d settle for credit for next year OR extension on belt recert.

My membership was set to expire March 31st but I waited to send payment.

I sent my yearly dues in on April 27th.

In mid May they first sent my temporary competition card back and it showed a March 31, 2021 expiration.

I e-mailed back and said: Shouldn't that be May 2021 ?

They changed it to May 31, 2021 within the hour.

I have not received a National Dragster since March

Our track made us prepay our pit stall rental back last November. We'll see where that goes.

There are a bunch of Canadians wondering about chassis tags and SFI dates all expiring.....yet we have no tracks open to run at.

So my flex plate shield is going bad sitting in my trailer? My transmission shield is failing as it sits? My -15 firesuit is coming apart at the seams while it hangs in my closet?

We are facing a really good chance of no racing up here the way our governments think. That just adds to the expenses and losses from this crappy chinaflu.

We are racing in Ontario this weekend (Grand Bend Motorplex), just have to abide by the rules.....should be doable.

These are the guidelines that we are following;


UPDATED PROCEDURES FOR THE JUNE 5-7TH THUNDER SERIES RACE PROGRAM PER THE PROVINCIAL GUIDELINES.
1. PRE REGISTRATION – All teams/crew must Pre Register thru the link above – for tech cards ( T&T and class cards), and crew members (max of 4). If Crew are purchasing their own entry they need to inform us what driver they are coming with. If paying with a credit card provide card number/expiry and CVV on back of card. Nothing will be processed until the Thursday before.Your package will be ready for pickup when you arrive. If wanting to pay by debit your package will be ready for you at the gate/window – cashier will process your card. If paying by cash – your package will be ready for you at the gate/window have the exact amount to hand in. MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR CAR # WITH YOUR REGISTRATION INFO – so we can put it on the tech cards. These procedures will greatly speed up the gate for everyone and lessen the number of interactions at the gate which is in everyone’s best interest. (If you have an issue doing this online call the office and give them your order)
2. FACILITY ENTRY/RESTRICTIONS – Preregistered entries do not need to come in together(another reason to pre register). They can come at separate times. For those who haven’t preregistered (no reason you shouldn’t) the driver and crew must enter the facility at the same time. Or the driver must purchase their crew entry and leave the wristbands at the gate for their crew coming in later ( No crew can enter the facility before the racer)
3. FRIDAY NIGHT T&T – For this event only those racers who are purchasing tech cards on the weekend can purchase a Friday night T&T card. Unfortunately we feel this is necessary for us to provide the social distancing requirements in the facility.
4 SOCIAL DISTANCING. – All teams will be required to setup in a social distancing fashion in the pits – maximum of 5 (which is basically the way we already setup using trailers between teams as the walls to create your own individual space). Masks – are not required( but encouraged) in the pit area or grandstands as you can easily keep 6 ft distance requirements. FOR ANYONE GOING PAST THE HEAD OF STAGING MASKS ARE MANDATORY – this area is limited in space and everyone wants to get the same view of the cars going down track so people have a tendency to get closer than they should, plus we want to protect our employees. ( we will have masks for sale in Thunderwear for $1)
5. STAGING LANES – we will be using lanes 1,3,5 for car classes and 4 & 6 for Juniors and Bike/Sled. If we feel a class is too big to call all at once we will call that class by even and odd car numbers to split it up. This gives everyone the space to adjust tire pressures put on dial ins etc without compromising social distancing.
6. WASHROOMS – We will have hand sanitizing stations outside each washroom facility. You will be required to use them prior to entering the washroom (that way your hands are sanitized before you touch anything) Plus we have a cleaning/sanitizing program each hour.
7. FOOD SALES – Our intention is to have the main concession open for this race weekend, There will be markings designating 6ft distances as you stand in line to order – please adhere to these. Once ordered please stand in the open area in front of the concession like usual and come up as you are called. No seating will be available -( All tables etc. will be removed and permanent seating spots taped off per provincial regulations)
7. TURNING IN TECH CARDS – There will be a box at the head of the staging lanes (along the wall) that you can deposit your tech cards into once filled out – don’t forget to sign the back of the card (limits person to person interactions). How we are going to handle tech TBD.
8. PRE-REGISTRATION FORM has been posted in the Facebook group – we can then enter the info into the computer for the season – so all you need to to do is put your name on the tech card and car # if not already there and all your other info will pop up on the computer when your number if entered. Click here for form.
9. THUNDERWEAR/RACER SERVICES - access will be limited to four people at a time. The rear door (pit side) will now be an "Exit Only" and the Entrance will be from the food court side of the building.
10. TOWER ACCESS - Only GBM staff will be allowed entry into the tower

My track had us send in our pit spot rental around January and the first race day is this Saturday and reserved pit spots are NOT being recognized for some strange reason. Even if the track offered to give a prorated refund I will not take it, I know for sure they could use the few extra dollars and I wont take money away from them. I hope all other racers would do the same. Some will most wont. If I was to win the 5K this Saturday I would give 1/2 back to the track. LOL, thats a safe statement for me to make, I suck. I count it as a win if I dont have to buy back after 1st round
