FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
REGARDING THE STARTING LINE WRISTBAND & SIGNING THE WAIVER:
Typically, we handle this at tech when the driver brings the car for inspection. Tech will be located at the scales, just like FL2k. Scales were calibrated shortly before FL2K and should be good to go.
Racers & Crew will receive an event wristband when they arrive at the track, which represents the purchase of a tech card or full event/crew ticket. (just like any other race). Racers/Crew will go to tech to sign the event waiver and will receive a starting line wristband which must be worn in addition to the band received at the gate when entering the event. It is helpful if they all go together as a team, but not mandatory. Only persons who have purchased a tech card or full event pass/wristband will be allowed to sign the waiver. Spectators will have a different wristband for Full event tickets. All parties signing the waiver must be 18 years of age. If a Minor (16-17 yoa) needs a starting line pass, they must have a Parent or Legal Guardian* sign for them. If a crew member cannot go to tech with the Driver, we allow drivers to give crew names to tech for any crew who may be arriving later in the weekend. Late-arriving crew members will need to go to tech to sign the waiver and receive the starting line band.
