Volunteer at Brainerd. You’ll love the spirit and camaraderie of being part of one of MotoAmerica’s most important teams. Photo by Brian J. Nelson.

On any MotoAmerica race weekend, other than being aboard one of the race bikes that are lapping the road course during practice sessions, qualifying, or the actual races, the next best place to be is as a track marshal in a corner, a flagging station, on the starting grid, or along pit wall.

It’s an enviable position where you are part of the show, occasionally might lay hands on a downed motorcycle, get to interact with the riders, and receive the admiration of the MotoAmerica staff, race teams, and especially the riders themselves.

Whether you’re in a corner, up in a flag station, or down on the starting grid, you’ll be as close as you can get to the bikes and riders. Photo by Brian J. Nelson.

MotoAmerica needs volunteers for Brainerd International Raceway on June 14 through 16, and YOU could help:

What we offer:

  • FREE entry to the event each day
  • An extra entry ticket for another person as your guest
  • FREE camping
  • FREE lunches each day
  • FREE MotoAmerica swag
  • Saturday night party with giveaways and prizes

What we need:

  • Corner workers, including flaggers (don’t know how to do it? We’ll train you)
  • Grid volunteers – an easy introduction to helping MotoAmerica (yes, we’ll train you on this, too)
  • Technical volunteers – helping to check that bikes are safe, and legal (yup, we’ll train you)
  • Hospitality – looking after staff, teams, riders, and sponsors

Interested? This Wednesday, June 5 at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT/6 p.m. MT/5 p.m. PT), MotoAmerica Chief Marshal David Hawley will deliver an online presentation about serving as a track marshal. All you need is a laptop or smart phone, and you can join the presentation, which is open to anyone and everyone who has an interest in being a track corner worker or grid marshal.

Besides being Chief Marshal for MotoAmerica, Hawley is also Flag Chief for the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas, the MotoGP event that takes place annually at Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas. He’s also a right jolly Brit and an accomplished actor, so we guarantee you’ll be as entertained as you are informed by what Hawley has to say and show.

Learn more on Wednesday evening
