Important, wear your CVR wristband all weekend long. If a CVR staff member sees you w/o one, you will be required to go to the front officer to buy another one. If you are a driver, you will not be allowed on track and could miss track time due to having to go to the front office and buy another one.

NOTE: These are not charged by NASA. These are fees set by the track.

Paddock / Gate Times
  • Friday: TBD
  • Saturday: 6AM - 9PM
  • Sunday: 6AM - end of event

Paddock Parking Restrictions
The paddock expansion is complete and paddock space should not be an issue but please still only use what you need. Guys without a motorhome, trailer, etc. are important too ya know! Smile

Event Schedule
“What time do I need to show up?” is the #1 question we are asked, especially by the folks new to NASA. The gates will open at 6AM on Sat & Sun and the mandatory drivers meeting will start promptly at 7:30AM. We always suggest showing up at least an hour before the drivers meeting to allow enough time to find a spot, check in with Driver Info (if you’re HPDE1) and get your car through tech and any other last min items before the drivers meeting. For exact times see the attached (draft) schedule (at the bottom).
NOTE: Despite this being a "NASA Arizona" event, we will recognize “Pacific Time” (PDT) since we will be in CA.

Tech Inspection
HPDE, Time Trial and Race cars will all go to the same Tech location. Drivers need to be prepared and have the correct form already filled out and logbooks ready to go to avoid delays.
  • HPDE cars - print and fill out the "HPDE Tech" form (no logbook required)
  • Time Trial cars - print and fill out the "Annual Race Car Technical Form" and have log book ready
  • Race cars - Same as Time Trial
All forms can be found at

[COLOR="Red"]NOTE: All race cars that have not been issued a NASA logbook, are required to have their initial inspection performed by one of the authorized shops prior to arriving onsite to avoid tech/safety issues that cannot be resolved onsite. Exceptions to this need to be pre-approved in writing specifically by[/COLOR]

Competition Classing and Team Declarations
All competitors classing sheets and Team Declarations are posted at under the "Competition" section. Please work with Jeff Abrams ( prior to arriving onsite if your classing sheet is not up to date.

Driver Info / Registration
  • If you are not wearing your waiver wrist band you may be asked by Driver Info to sign the waiver again
  • HPDE1 will need to “check in” with registration @ the big white tent. All other groups will receive their wristbands from their respective Group Leader
    directly after the Drivers Meeting


Transponder Rentals
  • Need to be checked out at registration
  • Need to be returned to registration within 30 mins of your final session to avoid a late fee
  • Time Attack competitors: If you rented a transponder for your TA session, it is only available for your TA laps. If you need a transponder for TT or Race group you will be required to pay for a full weekend rental.

Drivers Meetings / Downloads
The mandatory drivers meeting for all drivers (HPDE, TT, Race) will be held at Driver Info on Saturday morning (NOTE: Sun morning Racers do not need to attend). All other group meetings and download locations will be announced by your respective Group Leader directly after the morning drivers meeting.

Timing and Scoring
Results will be posted on our sign easels at Driver Info. If errors are found, please bring this to the attention of Driver Info or you TT / Race Director immediately to get corrected.

Our usual hard working folks will be serving lunch for volunteers and officials only. All other participants will need to plan ahead or purchase their lunch from the onsite food vendor.
Attendance to our world famous Sat night BBQ is requested but requires either a driver wrist band or purchase of a guest wrist band ($10/person) via the pre-registration page. It is also the responsibility of all participants to ensure NO UNDER AGE DRINKING OCCUR AT THE EVENT!!!

The club provides bottled water for staff/volunteers @ registration. That same water is also available to participants and guests @ 2 for $1 using the self serve cash box.

Caliphotography will be servicing the event. Please see them at the event for all your Professional on-track photo needs.
NOTE: Due to an exclusive agreement between Caliphotography and CVR, no other photographers are allowed to take picture unless they are individuals taking pictures for their personal use only.

* 91 - $5.759
* 98.5 - $8.999
* 101 - $9.999
