2014 GCKI Winter Blast flyerClick to enlarge flyer

By popular demand, GCKI is planning to hold the annual Winter-Blast, non-points, fundraiser, fun race.  The planned date is Sunday January 5th.  The event will be conditional upon two factors – the weather and the willingness of people to volunteer.  If the prediction is for rain or temperatures below 45 degrees on Sunday per the “Weather Bug” forecast on Friday January 3rd – the race will be cancelled.

All current 2013 class rules and driver eligibilities will apply to this event.

Additionally, we will need the following positions filled – (2) volunteer corner workers (we already have 1 volunteer), assistant race secretary (wristbands), scales, grid.  Please respond to this posting with your willingness to commit to one of these positions at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  Workers will qualify for 2014 Spring Series worker points for the driver of their choice.  If the roles are not filled by Friday January 3rd with volunteers – the race will be cancelled.
