Make sure to complete your waiver before coming to the track!
Waivers must be completed electronically for this race season by all participants, mechanics, and volunteers – if you are going to be on the grid at all this season you must complete a waiver! We will not be accepting any paper waivers.
Annual waivers can be completed at https://waterloorkc.speedwaiver.com/nigjl
Please be sure to complete this waiver and bring a screenshot of the confirmation to the track each race day. We will be checking that waivers are completed at registration each morning and handing out wrist bands to drivers, mechanics, and volunteers that have completed the waiver.
We will be checking wrist bands to ensure that anyone who is on the grid or track has completed a waiver and entering the grid without signing the waiver will have repercussions.
– Step One – click on the link provided. It will then send a text message to your mobile phone with the link for the waiver. Follow steps.
– Step Two – sign the waiver on your smart phone
– Step Three – show your waiver at the sign in booth and receive your arm band.

We invite anyone who has any interest in any of these roles to reach out to us at [email protected].
