ATTENTION ALL MINOR DRIVERS
SAFETY ADDENDUM FOR ALL MINOR DRIVERS
Due to the alarming incidents that have happened at neighboring race tracks in the state of Florida, East Bay Raceway Park is taking a pro-active move to help cut down on the type injuries that have been happening to our younger racers.
All drivers ages 14-17 will be required to have an SFI-38.1 approved head and neck restraint system in place and fully operational at all times that they are on the racing surface at
EAST BAY RACEWAY PARK.
This will be mandatory for all racers under the age of 18.
It is not mandatory for anyone 18 or above, but it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for them as well.
Insurance may force us to go to a full mandatory for every driver status if these injuries continue.
East Bay Raceway Park has gone to all three of the area suppliers and tried to set up a better price for all of the units that meet this SFI-38.1 standard.
Hot Rodgers Racing Supply @ 813/882-3227
Outlaw South Racing Parts @ 813/526-3521
Racecar Engineering @ 1-800/882-7231
Heat Racing @ 813/210-6392
If you mention that you are racing at East Bay Raceway Park, they have all agreed to give you a little bit better pricing in the next couple of months to help everyone get them.
Ask for the East Bay Raceway Park Safety pricing.
We realize that these items are very expensive and that is why we have reached out to the area parts suppliers to try to help get you a better deal on them. We hope that you understand that it is your safety that we are most concerned about. There has just been too many injuries and fatalities to not try to make it safer for all involved. We also realize that this is not the total answer as there are a number of risks that are involved in this sport and we are committed to addressing all safety related issues to make it safer for all involved.
To help all minors to afford these items, we at East Bay Raceway Park will offer an incentive to each of you. If you get the SFI 38.1 approved device, then register with us here at the track. We will offer a $5.00 bonus incentive for up to 20 weeks. You have to be registered and we will check each race to make sure that it is being worn properly. If so, then we will give an extra $5.00 added to your pay each night for up to 20 events. This will basically give you a rebate of $100 towards your purchase.
This will be mandatory for all minors effective June 7, 2014.
