Arrive the first day with legal bodies and proper wing heights (below roof height). Following ROAR guidelines will save you a lot of hassle.
Each morning, be ready with charged packs for practice and tires prepped. Don't be surprised to see cars on the track within minutes after the doors open.
Be around at the end of the day to find out what is REALLY expected to happen the next day. If you don't know...Ask!
Be prepared for overnight resorts. Can easily make you miss a scheduled practice/qualifier run.
Be prepared for Scotty to run a 'tight ship' time-wise through all the practices and qualifiers.
Get to tech two races before your run. Quite often, you need to initially have the body off.
Make sure your car is going to pass tech. Overcharging above the specified voltage is not tolerated. Ride height and weight are always checked.
