Requirements of the Group
The group commits to work all race events. The number of group members needed for each role varies. Groups should be prepared to have extra members to work in the event of last minute cancellations. The group must supply the required number of personnel, as determined by Chicagoland Speedway, to staff the assigned role. Flexibility will improve the chances of obtaining your group’s maximum involvement. All group members must understand that to provide the level of service our guests deserve, they will be required to present a positive image benefiting their organization and Chicagoland Speedway. Each group must appoint a group contact. This individual will be the sole contact for Chicagoland Speedway and be responsible for scheduling, recruiting and all communications with Chicagoland Speedway.
A dress code is enforced, which usually consist of khaki pants and a white collared shirt, unless otherwise specified by the Speedway.
Hours and report times vary by role. Release times also vary by role and are affected by weather and delays with on-track activities (i.e.: caution flags). For most roles release is sometime after on-track activities have concluded. It is unlikely that on-track activities would ever be completed by 5:00 p.m. Please anticipate an average shift to last 10 hours. Specific schedules will be developed when a role has been determined.
Compensation varies and is affected by the particular role, the level of your group’s involvement and the length of the workday. Flexibility can increase income. Compensation specifics would be discussed after determining a role that matches the group’s availability and level of involvement. Checks are issued to groups after each event.
The speedway will provide training prior to the season to review the facility and position expectations. Being prepared to succeed is an important part in exceeding guest’s expectations.
Camping on speedway property is available to all workers beginning on Thursday of race week. Early lights out and quiet time will be enforced.
