Racers – If you are under 18 you will need to have an insurance form signed by both parents before you are allowed to race. This is MANDATORY!!! You will have a special minor card to indicate that you are a minor driver. The Minor Release forms are on the website and can be printed off to bring. They must be printed in color and must be notarized. Please look closely at the form as one side is for the parent to sign and the other is for the minor to sign. If both parents are present you can sign the forms at the track in front of our staff.

We hold Roger and his family close in our thoughts and prayers and hope you know that you have a big racing family that is here for you, and thinking of you during this difficult time. We are deeply sorry for your loss.”

The remaining events on the 2021 Winternationals scheduled (Feb. 17-20) have been cancelled. The winter conditions elsewhere have made it impossible for Crate Racing USA officials and competitors to travel. Current oversaturated track conditions and prospective weather issues locally for the rest of the week have contributed to the decision. The next racing at East Bay Raceway Park will be the 2021 regular season opener on Saturday, March 13.
