J.Race Posted July 26, 2017 Report Share Posted July 26, 2017 (edited) Hello, I am a racing enthusiast that, quite frankly, cannot stay on the sidelines indefinitely. The problem? Not nearly enough money, and didn't get an early enough start due to school and family reasons. I live in the general area of BIR Raceway in Minnesota, USA. As I was reading through the advice for team captains, I found that it was not uncommon for new teams to find themselves missing both their primary and their backup driver in an event. Though I wouldn't be starting this year, is it possible to register as a spare driver without an associated team for a single event, or do the rules not allow for this? If this is not possible, what way might I be able to get involved as a driver that could dramatically cut costs (besides of course the membership and test which I can't really do much about, and the safety gear of course I plan to spend well on)? Are there other ways I can legally get involved in racing in Minnesota that would be more inexpensive? I'm looking at about 3k or 4k max, with monthly expenses not exceeding $200-300. Can I make this happen? I apologize since, besides some research in both driving and auto mechanics, I am completely new to this.
