New pit area policies announced for
minors at Thunderbowl Raceway
Children under 14 not allowed in pit area
during races starting October 10
Tulare, CA September 15, 2015 - With the season getting ready to resume at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare next month there are new pit area policies being put in place starting with the October 10 KRC Safety Fall Shootout.
Starting immediately children UNDER 14 years of age will not be allowed in the pit area during the races. Those that are under 16 will be required to provide proof of age, which means a copy of your birth certificate, id or a notarized document. A copy is also required to be left with the pit booth staff. There is no copy machine in the booth so it's required to bring a copy with you to leave with staff. Consent forms will be available in the booth.
Speed will also be closely monitored for those on ATV's throughout the pit area, regardless of age. Everyone is reminded to keep safe speeds and be smart when riding around the pits.
These policies will be permanently in place at Thunderbowl Raceway from now on and will be observed at both the October 10 KWS/USAC event, as well as the three-night Trophy Cup on October 15, 16 & 17.
"With insurance being such a big deal we felt that it was in the best interest of the track to put these new policies in place, " said Thunderbowl Raceway promoter Steve Faria. "We have two huge weekend's coming up in October and we want everyone to be safe in the pit area. A lot of cars will be idling around the pits, especially the Trophy Cup where we will have 100 cars. We're all really looking forward to finishing up the season in a huge way. Everyone is working hard to give the fans & teams a great show to cap the year."
Tickets for both the KRC Safety Fall Shootout on October 10 & the 22nd annual Southwest Contractors Trophy Cup on October 15, 16 & 17 are on sale at 559-688-0909. A seating chart is available at www.thunderbowlraceway.com
All of the special happenings are returning to the Trophy Cup once again, including the Thursday Chili Dog Night sponsored by Taco Bravo, the Friday Taco Bravo Fiesta Night and the Saturday afternoon spaghetti feed sponsored by La Villa Delicatessen. A new special Friday morning breakfast sponsored by the Tulare County Fairgrounds is also going to occur from approximately 8am to 10am on October 16. A donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the door during all the special events is appreciated! More info on the event can be found at www.trophycup.org
