Upon arrival at the Church on race day, you MUST check in with the track master.  Check in begins at noon.  Each scout will have his photo taken and record the name of his car with the Track Master.  If you fail to check in on race day, you will not be entered into the race.  Please arrive early and make sure to check in!
