|Whip City BMX is built on the
volunteers that come out and help during our events. Without them,
there would be no Whip City BMX. If you are a parent of a racer,
you know that the time your child is on the track is only a fraction of
the time you are actually at the track. Why not come out and help!
Most of the volunteers are parents of
racers; some are retired racers from "way back in the day;"
and some are parents of retired racers. We
even have a few racers themselves who volunteer between their motos,
including Joey Gaulin and Ali Thimmish.
We could always use more volunteers to help us at any of our
events. Here are some of the things YOU could be doing at Whip

filling in washed-out areas, repairing fencing, maintaining electrical
units and lighting, mowing grass, picking up loose trash in the track
area, etc. If you would like to help with track maintenance, please contact
