Join our Pit Crew!
Track 50/50 Ticket Sales Goddess
Are you a wiz at getting people to say “yes” and have no remorse for encouraging a habit forming addiction of gambling? Can you sell Ice to Eskimos? I am looking for – okay, I am desperately seeking someone – to spend a couple of hours hawking 50/50 tickets (proceeds go to the Awards Fund!!) during our KAM Kartway Race events.
In return you will get a BIG THANK YOU from me AND a FREE Pit Pass for each race you work?
Score Keeper Assistant
Sure I may make it look easy…..but this job requires fast thinking, a sharp eye, the ability to perform 3 to 5 tasks at the same time (Multitasking is an understatement) and be skilled at tuning out ‘bat-feces’ crazy parents when they come up to yell at you about a call that you didn’t even make. But that last part only happens when there is a full moon.
[Bonus skill: prevent me from getting that crazy looking glazed evil-eye condition that is common when one is getting dirt flung at them in triple digit weather for hours - with the occasional pelting of mud clods from the Outlaws - and, okay - is pretty ‘bat-feces’ crazy herself.]
- Accurately – and unbiased – recording all laps during the heats and feature races
- Calculating heat points to determine feature line-up
- Determining re-start lineups after cautions and communicating this to Flagman and/or drivers
- Writing line ups on the pit board
- Calling up classes to the grid
- Making announcements on the PA system
- Handing out Heat stickers at intermission
- Presenting awards at the end of each feature race
- Recording the race finishes
- And a full understanding of the KAM Kartway Rules and policies
Compensation to include Free Pit Pass along with a flat rate pay of $40. *Oh, and a $5 Concession Credit for each race event! Can you say “Walking Taco please”…..
Marketing & Social Media Assistant Extraordinaire
Looking for part-time help in the office and on the internet. This person needs to be a master communicator (Phone, email, text, chat/forum, Blogs, etc.), have an eye for detail and must know how to spell (because I can’t!). Do you have creative exhaust radiating from your pores? Do you have love affair with technology that is founded on a deep mutual respect? Do you have a flair for turning boring into awesome – and by that I mean turn a boring PR post into a tremendously spectacular Race Report for the KAM Blog?
This person should have a knowledge of racing (preferably dirt track, and more specifically Karts, Micro or Sprint cars), a passion for helping others attain their goals and a desire to entertain the masses. Good Problem Solving skills, knowledge of Microsoft Office software programs (Word, Excel, etc.) and a general understanding of either Word Press or HTML (for web page updates, blog posts, uploading pictures – that kind of thing).
Other tasks will include:
- Interviewing drivers for Driver Bios on the website and for Featured Driver Blog posts
- Shooting and editing video footage for Video Marketing, video blogs, tutorials, etc.
- Checking, filtering, replying to emails, online comments, and Facebook messages
- Checking daily order status, printing invoices and/or packing slips from online store
- Write content copy for the KAM Motorsports websites (blogs, product descriptions, product reviews, and other motorsports related posts)
- Help with organizing, planning & implementing special event Promotions at KAM Kartway
- Assist with data entry for record keeping (customers, racers, results, reports, bookkeeping)
Sounds like a lot, but I just really need someone to help with the load so I don’t turn into a basket case….okay that maybe too late – but the hours are flexible and some tasks/jobs can be done from your home! Right now I have a budget of $10/hour and approximately 20 hours a week.
