President’s Article March 2021

It’s been nearly a year now since we have had any substantial Club activities, minus one tech session late last fall.

Our Board of Directors has planned a full calendar of events for this upcoming year, and I think most of us are ready to get back out and get involved with face-to-face activities again. Most of us joined this Club to become involved with the events and activities of the Club, and really, that is what our Cub is all about. As people get vaccinated and the health situation begins to get back to normal, I hope we will see a large number of members attending our events again.

What we took for granted has been taken away from us for a while, so when some events and activities begin to resume, I hope our members will be appreciative of what we will be able to do again. I am certainly looking forward to attending Club activities and events again and will not take anything we do for granted. I am looking forward to seeing many of you out to our events and activities soon.

Please continue to visit our website for upcoming events, activities and news from the club.

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too. It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING! Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

All Schools $95.

Parents are encouraged to stay!  Please arrive early.

Vehicles with modifications that alter the center of gravity (i.e. lift kits) are not acceptable. High Center of Gravity Vehicles (HCGs) such as SUVs, SAVs, Trucks, Jeep-type vehicles, and Minivans will need to be verified.  The older HCGs without electronic stability control (not just the electronic traction control) will not be accepted. HCG vehicles may still be limited with respect to the exercises in which they are allowed to participate based on local venue conditions.  Please look up the HCG vehicle safety score. You can research the safety ratings that a vehicle has received at www.edmunds.com  Input the vehicle and year and look at the safety rating in the upper right corner of the web page. Any vehicle with a listing of 3 stars or more out of 5 in the Roll Over test will be allowed to participate in our class. We are concerned about the Roll Over test on the HCG only. We are not concerned about the crash test ratings. Any HCG vehicle listed as “not tested” in the Roll Over test will not be allowed to participate.

ALL COMMUNICATION REGARDING THE SCHOOL WILL BE SENT TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS ON THE REGISTRATION LISTED AS THE STUDENT’S.

Street Survival – staff ONLY

Registration ends in a month on October 24, 2019 10:00 AM CDT. Street Survival is a community service effort, aimed at teaching teen drivers much more about car control than they ever had the opportunity to see in Drivers’ Education.

Our volunteers serve as in-car instructors, course workers, and other event staff.  Please come on out and give us a hand in helping teens to be better drivers!  The life you save may be one of theirs – or yours.
