Guidelines for CVAR Race at Eagles Canyon Raceway (“ECR”)

I think after getting some of the feedback from the weekend, CVAR had a great return to racing last month at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit. Our plans for addressing safety issues for COVID were well received and we will continue to provide a fun and safe environment for our club members and any guests in these very difficult times. With the advent of the coronavirus, we have had rethink the way we conduct our events, for the safety of our drivers, crew, staff and track personnel. CVAR will do everything we can to keep our people safe, but inevitably many of the new safety protocols will be the responsibility of CVAR members.

Brad Flack, the general manager of ECR has indicated that Wise County, where ECR is located, has a very low incidence of COVID related illness. Please see the attached link for any further information.

These program changes are set forth below are minimum guidelines for all CVAR members to meet. Participants who refuse to comply with these policies will be asked to leave the event upon first offense.

CVAR Protocols

  • All registrations must be completed at least 24 hours (9.10.20) and there will be no registration at the track
  • On Thursday (9.10.20) from the time the track opens until closing, temperatures will be taken via a remote thermometer/scanner at the entrance gate. Thereafter temperatures will be taken in the morning on Friday and Saturday (9.11.20 and 9.12.20) from the time that the track opens until 12PM. In the event anyone requesting entry has an elevated temperature (according to CDC guidelines, in excess of 100.4 degrees F), they will not be allowed to enter the facility.

Drivers do not need to wear a mask or face covering while in their vehicles.

  • Any lines that may form during the event for participants or staff should be planned for ahead of time to ensure 6-foot distancing guidelines can be maintained. This can include the lunch line to order food, driver info, etc.
