September NJMP Paddock Information

ASRA/CCS and NJMP management have finalized a plan for the September 5-6 event at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

First, this event is NO SPECTATORS. With that being said, you, your family and crew are welcome to attend the event with some simple, common sense precautions.

All trailers and pit areas must be 10 feet apart. To make sure there is enough room, we ask that you park your trailer or set up your paddock space and then move your extra vehicles to a parking area. Remember the paddock is shared space, be kind to your neighbors so we don’t have to ask anyone to move or leave.

Masks are required indoors in all public areas, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Masks are required especially when you are in contact with others outside your immediate pit/paddock area. If you are going to visit another rider in their pit or paddock, masks are required if you are within 6 feet of that rider or their crew. NOTE: You do NOT have to wear a mask around your pit/paddock when only you, your family and your crew are in your area. Riders do not need to wear masks when wearing their helmet on the track.

Riders meetings will be done by the PA system. During riders meetings we ask you turn off your generators and compressors for the length of the meeting as a courtesy to other.

If you happen to fall down, the ambulance will only put you in the ambulance if you need medical attention. Otherwise they will check you out and then if you are deemed physically okay, they will have you ride back to the paddock with the crash truck. This helps eliminate the down time required for the ambulance to sanitize the cabin after any patient is placed inside.

Thank you for your patience and support while we work on our newest course of action.

Current Registration and Tech Procedures

These procedures will allow us to comply with existing orders for limiting contact in enclosed spaces, masks, gloves and hand sanitizer for the staff who deal directly with the racers. (For the foreseeable future we will use these at every event.)

Since these are the two areas where the closest interaction takes place, here is our new procedure for registration and tech.

Registration:

Our goal is to limit personal contact to a minimum.

If registration takes place inside, remember it is one door in, (at NJMP, the door to the East), and one door out, (the West door).

Each rider will be given their own pen, at the end on the line there will be a bucket for the rider to drop the pen in for us to sanitize when registration closes. (Registrars will sanitize their work station with wipes and/or spray anytime they return to their station and before leaving in the evening.)

One registrar will be stationed the door using gloves, face mask and hand sanitizer. They will have all riders sign a waiver and release at the door and control the access to 12 racers at a time in the room. All entrants will have their temperature taken and any rider with a temperature of 100.0 of higher will be turned away

Each registrar will have gloves, face mask for themselves and hand sanitizer available for the racer to use. All staff in registration will be at least 6’ apart with their own table between them and the racer. We will allow only 12 riders in the room at a time with 3 registrars. (Tape lines on the floor 6’ apart).

Once the racer is finished and deposits their pen in the bucket, they will be asked to use the exit (At NJMP, the West door).

Tech:

Our goal is to limit personal contact to a minimum.

Each inspector will have gloves, face mask for themselves and hand sanitizer available for the racer to use..

We will have multiple tech lines approximately 10’ apart.

Inspectors will strive to maintain 6’ separation in the lines waiting to be inspected.

Racer will bring a stand to tech with the motorcycle and place the bike on the stand and move 6’ away from the motorcycle. Then the inspector will evaluate the machines race-readiness. After placing an approval sticker on the machine or notifying the rider of what needs to be addressed, the inspector will move away from the machine and let the racer remove their machine from the tech area.

While we have some specific in-depth procedure changes for the staff, these are the outline we are starting with to mitigate the potential of spreading the virus among or racers and staff.

ASRA/CCS management believe these measures would allow us to be safe and in full compliance with existing restrictions but we understand new orders could be issued with immediate implementation that could remove/change procedures or require postponement or cancellation.

Twin Sprint on Sept 12-13 at NCBike

While the new section of asphalt was being repaired last week, facility management became aware of a problem with the supporting track bed in that section requiring extensive reworking. With that being said, NCBike and Evolve GT have procured enough extra soft barriers to run the event on whichever course is available to us. A big thank you to Sam, Mark and Alex for going the extra mile for us. For Friday practice on the course we will be using, follow the Evolve GT link below.

Registration will be in the NCCAR Facility building just inside the front gate for this event. Updated hours for the September event are 5:30pm to 7:00pm on Friday, 7:00am to 6:00pm on Saturday and 7:00am to 3:00pm on Sunday.
