Do you know what days you will be running? I should be available any of the days except Sunday most likely as my wife works and I will have the little ones barring any unforeseen circumstances at this time.

Ok guys... I'm gonna help make it clear how badly we need members to help us pull this off.

This is the first time we'll be doing this without any SCCA support... Thank God for Pete and his dealers who will be the core folks pulling this off.

So here is what I'm willing to offer.

We will give anyone that ends up on Pete's list as workers will get free entry into the fest for the entire weekend.

Pete you manage the list and what is an acceptable level of effort. It's up to you who makes the list.

In addition whomever steps up to be Pete's administrative "go to" person, will get some compensation from Camaro5 as well. I'm working on that now. I will post as soon as I know what it will be....

But we will have plenty of experienced drives that will be able to take you for a few laps or to ride along with you if you'd like.

We may need to set up a special time for these runs if there is enough interest in ride alongs.

Pete, I would like to make a plea to the members who want to run the auto-X

This is run by a dude named PETE.. it's not a large professional setup, it's a bunch of Camaro dudes out to have a good time, Pete enjoys it, but he can't do it by himself. It takes a LOT of folks to make it work... the more folks, the easier it is on everyone.

If you want to run, you HAVE to help, at least with cones, or wherever Pete may need you at the time.

Make plans to have a small get together with your buddies at a corner or three, bring your lawn chairs and drinks (no liquor) and help with cones for a couple hours, you'll have the best seat in the house... also....many hands make for light work.

If you say you'll help, HELP! There were only three corner workers for the first morning last year, and it was a HUGE layout... It made for slow running, only one car on the track at a time, and delays resetting cones.

Schedule your time at the fest, if you want to run autoX in the am of the first day, plan on using the morning of the first day to help at the track.

Absolutely AWESOME, Chris.




I can't wait for this years Auto-X. I didn't get the full experience last year. And, by the time I got there, it was just way too late. I will be there from beginning to end! (well...with occasional trips over to the Camaro5 tent to see the wife and make sure she's doing okay. )

I am willing to volunteer for one of the six needed, although I have never participated, seen or been to one of these events. In other words I would need some kind of training on what I am doing.
I also cannot garentee that I can make it since I am military, military comes first. But this is home for me and I do plan on doing everything I can to be there!

Pete, you can add my name to help out, corner work, show me how to work the clock & I will do that. I have had a blast at both fests so far & this will top both! The more volunteers, the smoother this will go. Can't wait for August to get here....
