Volunteer Opportunities Available for Modesto Grand Prix


Want to be in the middle of the Modesto Grand Prix action?  Here’s your opportunity to get involved in what is sure to be one of Modesto’s biggest events.  Volunteers are needed for the Modesto Grand Prix, presented by Save Mart Supermarkets, on August 1, 2 and 3, 2014.

 

Anyone who wishes to volunteer for an opportunity to participate in the first annual race can sign-up online for positions including setup crew, clean up crew, hospitality, parking, runners, tickets/gates and volunteer check-in.  Simply go online to http://modestogp.com/volunteers/ and click on the link.

 

“Just as we couldn’t have a race without the participation of the drivers and teams from around the nation, we simply could not operate this event without the support of volunteers who will help make this race a reality,” said Mary Otten, Deputy Director of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods.  “Being involved in the race as a volunteer allows community members to experience this exhilarating sport first-hand, which is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.”

 

Modesto is known for its volunteerism – and this event is no different.  More than 500 volunteers will be needed this year to help make Modesto the showcase community in the 2014 Pro Tour Summer Nationals presented by Superkarts! USA (SKUSA).
