Help Wanted: Introducing the DE Work/Drive Program By Wayne Elliott, Region Safety Co-Chair photos by Bill Orr Have you ever wanted to find out what it feels like to drive on a race track, but were unwilling to shell out the $300+ to attend one of the clubs’ Drivers’ Education events? Well, here’s an opportunity to do it for free! Part of what the club provides in return for your entry fee are the people who keep you safe on the track and keep everything running smoothly throughout the day. We need a larger pool of workers, so we’ve begun a work/drive program that benefits everyone. Work one weekend and you get a credit to drive a weekend in the future. You’ll be paired with an experienced safety worker, and get to watch the cars at speed from a vantage point like no other. If you’ve ever participated in DE events in the past, this will give you a greater appreciation for what those guys and gals in the white suits do at the corners. You’ll never again miss or ignore a flag, or have to try to remember what exactly that flag color means. If you haven’t participated in DEs, this program will give you a great introduction into the sport, and maybe even turn you into a “track rat.” Lastly, if you don’t develop an interest in driving, you can continue to work future events and get paid $100 or more per day for your time. For more information, please contact Wayne Elliott at 817-996-7447 or welliott911@gmail.com. 29
