I'm still not sure on passengers youth and promod yes not sure on the other classes they was supposed to let me no after there last meeting but no one has contacted me. I will get you a answer this week or try anyway
What type of insurance on the drivers and passengers are you using or the name of the company? I've had lots of inquiring about adding passengers to our show but the 3 major Motorsport insurance companies do not offer that. Or are you using strictly spectator insurance and hoping that the release form the drivers and passengers sign will cover you in case of an accident?

We are covered under our fire department insurance for the hole event. I'm not a fan of passenger derbies either not saying they are any better or worse it's just my opinion. As of now I'd say the only class that will have passengers will be the youth class and that's not 100 percent yet the fair board for whatever reason is back pedaling on this class. Very frustrating on my part but I work for them so my thought are there will probably be no passengers and the youth class may not happen. I'm doing all I can to save it and have a fair board working with me to save it but the board has the final say. So it will be next month before I have any answers for sure answers. Again out of my hands but I will continue to push for what you drivers want

Just left the fair board meeting and there will be no youth class and no passengers in any event on the fairgrounds. I will apply the money from the youth class to the other classes. I will get a complete run down of payout per class shortly. I apologize for my out of states that travel for the youth class.
