Want to hoist a trophy at Victory Lane in Daytona? Now's your chance!
 
 
 
Okay, get ready, and read carefully cause there's a lot going on this time and the information here will help you, a lot, I hope..
 
First, please read the Supplemental Rules here.
 
 
How big is Daytona? On our race weekend it will host the ChampCar Endurance Series, the Ultimate Street car guys, and a Prom. Yes, there's going to be a lot going on, but if everyone helps us stick to the plans we will have our usual terrific event.
 
Friday, load in day. The USCA cars will be running their track laps while we set-up Friday. I say that so you are prepared for the extra traffic. As usual, your pits and garages will be preassigned. They're further down so keep reading. If you have a garage you will be allowed to park your hauler in the trailer space assigned to that garage. They do not always line up, look for the correct number. That means your hauler only. No personal cars. There will be guards at the entry gates to both the Blue and Yellow garages stopping personal cars, I know it may be inconvenient, but traffic and space become too crowded too quick. We can let in an extra truck with supplies and equipment, but you have to get in, unload, and move it out.
 
If you did not rent a garage space you will park your trailer and paddock in the overflow area to the west of the Blue garages. I want to be completely clear here. If you do not have a garage, you do not paddock in the garage areas.
 
We will have access to pit lane all day Friday for set up. But, we will not allow any vehicles of any kind and you will have to remain on the cold side of the pit wall.
 
Tech. Tech inspection will be done in the Scale room in the Blue garages. The Blue garage side will be the only Tech inspection this time. If you already have a 2019 Annual Tech inspection you are all set. If you have not, please make sure your car is compliant. This is a big race and the Tech line can get long. Please have all your forms completed, accurately, and be ready.
 
Registration. Registration will be held in the Media building again. This is the building right between the Blue and Yellow garages. Once you have completed Tech, bring your log book or your tech form to Registration. Don't want to wait in a long line at Registration? Here's two things that can help speed things up. First, make sure all your drivers have current memberships, second complete your registration payments in full. We can do pit passes and other small things, but having memberships and registrations paid in full really helps speed things up.
 
Camping. Camping spaces with electric and water are available in the lot along Lake Loyd. Camping spaces are $75 for the weekend. Spaces are first-come-first pick. We will have a staff member at the entrance to take payment. We have never sold out of spaces, not even halfway so there's no need to rush for spaces. Lastly, please park correctly in the lined spaces.
 
USCA. One last note about the USCA cars. they will be running on track while we load in They will access the track from pit lane through the Yellow garages. This is why we are conducting our activities in the Blue garage. Additionally, they will bring their cars off track near the first horseshoe turn in the infield. This means their cars will be driving through the infield area between sessions. Please be aware of them and allow traffic to flow. There's plenty of room for both events to run, we just need to keep the traffic lanes open.
 
Race Day. Race day should go off as usual. Refer to the Supplemental Rules for the times. Please remember to keep personal vehicles out of the garage areas. Visitors, guests etc need to park in the lot area to the west of the Blue garages. We are not using the Owner/Driver Camping Lot, do not park in, around, or anywhere near the Owner Lot. Why? The Prom. 
 
Speaking of the Prom. We've done this the last few years and it actually works out pretty well. A local High School is using the 500 Club building for its Prom. They bring the kids in through the Owner Lot, and from there through a designated area to the 500 Club. What does this mean to you? Security. These are High School kids, its Prom, and alcohol is an issue. Track Security and the local Sheriff's Office will be checking cars at the gate for alcohol. If you have to leave the track for fuel, food, whatever and you need to get back in around the afternoon, be prepared to wait through vehicle checks. The Deputies and Security guys are nice but they could care less about our race. They will be checking cars and it will take time. My advice is to get your outside chores done early.
 
Dyno, did we mention the dyno? Our friends at Muletown will be onsite. For $75 you can get 3 pulls. If you and your car are previous customers you can get 3 pulls for $50. Additionally, Keith has scales and for $15 you can corner weight your car.
 
Look for more information at their web site, http://muletowndyno.com/
 
And, just like last year, a lucky couple cars will get to visit the dyno after the race courtesy of ChampCar!
 
Need Safety Gear? Ron from Discovery Auto Parts will have his mobile sales trailer on site. This means two things. First, it's very convenient for you, and second, zero tolerance for questionable safety gear. Got holes in your socks, brought two left shoes? You can get what you need at the trailer. If you need something specific now, contact them through their website and Ron can bring it down with him. https://www.discoveryparts.com/ 
 
Still Reading? Good! Wondering where you pit and garage assignment are? Yeah me too...
 
(Pause, wait for laughter..)
 
Your pit assignments are here
 
Your garage assignments are here.
 
One more desperate plea to please read the Supplemental Rules here.
 
 
If you have any questions about your registration please contact Katherine Miller here.
 
Any other general questions about the Daytona race please contact me here.
 
Thanks very much!    
 
 
We're looking forward to seeing you all in Florida!
 

The ChampCar Staff

Any chance there will be test time on track Friday April 12?   I don't see anything on the track's web page, but I'm pretty far from being local and don't know what options might exist.

We need to come up with a shirt for this race considering the fiasco that happened at the 24 Hour. It should be along the line of "We race rain, shine, snow or tropical strom" , "We race until we need a boat" or something similar.

I noticed we have to be out of the garage area at night... is the rest of the track grounds open to motor homes and camping?

 

Yes, the RV lot will be available over Friday night. They are usually pretty generous about keeping the gates to the garage, but at some point they will close them Friday night.

ChampCar Race Car Decals

Road Atlanta - Guys were pretty good at getting those decals on. Only a couple of teams gave me some stick. But they did put the decals on.
Sonoma - zero issues.  Ya, sure, no problem, is this right?  I was ready to whip out the DIC ruler and start whacking some knuckles. Was not even needed.

VIR South... Let's see how the Mid-Atlantic guys do. 

Harris Hill... Country club racers... Need to take my ascot to fit in. Or maybe a cowboy hat and boots. 

Daytona... gonna be fun!

Decals? what is this guy talking about?

New decals for 2019. and we require them on the car before you will pass tech. You will also need all the decals on your car, before you will be allowed to start the race. Just for those guys peeled them off after the last race.

Instructions are in the BCCR.


If you arrive and you failed to get the panels, they are $45 for the 3 number panels. All of the other decals are free. You will pay for them at registration.
We do not have numbers. So go to eBay and buy some black vinyl, bring an exacto knife and some painters tape. 
Remove all your old Chumpcar decals. Last years (2018) RVA Graphics and Wraps sponsored number panel is still good. We will give you a free TireRack.com overlay for the top of the number panel. remove the sponsor decals from last year as we have new ones. Remove the RVA window decal. We have new Tire Rack letters. If you have or need a background at the top of the window to shield your eyes from the moonlight, please, do not use yellow, orange or white. Tire Rack will go at the top of the window. Your sponsors or team name will be below the Tire Rack.com die cut decal.  If you want pre-printed window banners, you order those from RVA Graphics and Wraps.
With the vinyl, cut a contrasting letter out to make your class letter on the door. 
We also have new rear bumper sponsor decals that require you to either use a sharpie and white your car number in it, or order them pre-printed from RVA Graphics and Wraps.
Download and print these numbers on 8.5x11 copy paper.

ChampCar_Numbers_2019_0-9.pdf

These are the correct font and size to fit three numbers in the panel. Print enough out to do three sets of numbers. Tape them to the black vinyl. Carefully cut the numbers out without cutting your fingers off. Stick them to the number panels.

 

Remove the Maxxis Decal, unless you have an agreement with them.

 

Pre-Order your new decals at http://www.rvagfx.com

Not sure about that but its at 37 cars per mile which is pretty reasonable. Pit road will be a bit more crowed as some will have to quad pit but it should work. My first wheel to wheel race had 113 cars per mile.

Decal Inspection?   Is there such a thing?  Cars in impound at Rd. Atlanta had no decals.  I thought that meant you weren't allowed on track?

As I said before, the cars had them when they left pitlane. Race damage does not count towards you in the Impound. 

Though this concern will make me look closer at your car now.
