CopperDog Volunteers ... Its Almost Time!

Note: Volunteer registration opens Thursday, January 16 at 8:00AM!

The 2014 CopperDog 150 is rapidly approaching and event organizers are once again reaching out to our most important resource... volunteers from the community.  Our volunteer army is simply amazing, maybe the best in racing today. 

We welcome anyone and everyone both experienced and "newbies" to come and participate in this great event.  Volunteers are the life-blood of the CopperDog 150, every single individual counts and we greatly appreciate your support.

This year we will still be doing our Lead Volunteer program.  The focus of this program is to provide advanced race operations training to a handful (25 - 35) of passionate volunteers who will then serve as leaders and coordinators on race weekend.  This program is open to anybody who is interested in giving more to the CopperDog effort (around 8 to 12 hours) in the weeks leading up to the race and have responsibility for various aspects of the race during the event.
