It was a full weekend of racing & action at Castrol Raceway on the Road Course for the Northern Alberta Sports Car Club (NASCC). This was the start of the 2017 NASCC Road Racing season at the June 3 & 4 2017 with 3 race Groups & Closed Wheel – Spec Miata SM being the largest class.

Car 144 Justin Lewicke & Car 60 Team Slovo had some bad luck in the King of the Road on Saturday June 3. Car 60 Team Slovo lost his rear right wheel on track, there is a video on the club Facebook page. Car 144 Justin Lewicke posted on the club Facebook page: Just wanted to say thanks to the CMRT team and the corner worker (T7 especially) for moving quick and saving my car. Apologies to the rest of the field for the oil slick and red flag. Thanks for being understanding 🙂 Lot’s of people checked in on me and made me feel like we’re really all part of one big team. #144 will be back… just not tomorrow.

Motorsports Volunteers

Race Volunteers make events happen-from the organizers of the event to the person taking your ticket; it takes a lot of people to make an event work. Road Racing Cars Volunteer Positions: Clerk of the Coarse, Steward, Starter, Chief Coarse Marshal, Corner Captain, Communicator, Yellow Flagger, Blue flagger, Safety, Pri-grid, Pit in & Pit out, Rescue personnel: Ambulance crew, Fireman & Clean-up Crew Tow Truck driver, Pace Car Driver, Timing personnel, Srutineer (Tech), Registration & Back Gate. Remember watching racing can fun but being part of the race is even better. So if you are not racing come-out and volunteer the second best way to watch a race, the best way is to be in the car.

My favorite way to volunteer is as a track-side marshal/corner worker. Road course marshals are race personnel that surround the road course track at specified stations that communicate to drivers with flags and each other on radios. These are a committed group of volunteers that with training and experience, can become qualified to work the big professional races like Indycar & Formula 1.

Alberta Race Marshals (ARM):
Alberta Race Marshals (ARM) is a new non-profit organization of volunteers that share a passion for racing and will be working closely with the Canadian Motorsport Response Team (CMRT) to benefit from advanced and cross training support.
