Going to my first race!

10 posts in this topic

Me and a buddy are heading to the Brickyard this Thursday. We should be sitting on the end of pit road facing the track. I bought a scanner to listen to the drivers and am just starting to try and figure out how to use it. Where does everyone get their frequencies for listening? And any other tips for a race appreciated...

Have a great time. That place is simply awesome. It is huge.

We've always rented the scanners - they come preset. Have fun! I am a bit jealous!

Make sure you read the info the track sends out with the tickets on size allowances on bags, what is allowed in, etc. I have seen some very nice things just get left at the gate because the people didn't read their booklets. You should be able to find that stuff on the track's HSOforum as well.

Scanners are nice, the headset makes it wirth while. Make sure you have a good head set. If you are going with someone you can get a splitter so you both can listen. You can get the frequencies at the track from one of the venders that sells or rents the electronics. I haven't been to a race in about 7 years but friends that have used my scanner say that most of teams still run the same frequenies. Get to the track early and maybe do some tailgating or visit the suvonior trailers. Also check and see what if, anything that you can carry in.

I believe jayski still has free scanner sheets on his site. Otherwise do a search and you'll find them or as stated the scanner rental places will sell you a list for a few bucks at the track.

Cootz, going over on Fri. to ORP for the truck and bush (I know old school) races and probably Brickyard qualifying. If you have time ORP is a 1/2 mile old school track that puts on some great night races. ttg

It was IRP it is now ORP (O’REILLY RACEWAY PARK). They have a site with a map but it’s not far from the 500 track.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
