Safety Training/Officials Training


Dacotah Speedway will be hosting a Safety and Officials Training March 11-12 at the Baymont Inn & Suites in Mandan, North Dakota. This two day training session will begin Saturday, March 11 starting at 9:00am with a full day of fire and safety training presented by Jay Masur of Med Star Dirt Track Rescue. This fire and safety training will be an in-depth presentation on dirt track safety, rescue, extraction, fire suppression, medical management, pre-race event planning, crew performance during races and post-race analysis. The purpose of this presentation is so attendees will leave with baseline knowledge of the components necessary to save a race car driver’s life. This presentation is extremely knowledgable to all track officials, fire, EMS teams, promotors, board of directors and even drivers. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.


The Safety and Officials Training will continue Sunday, March 12 at 10:00am with track scoring and officiating. Josh Holt, co-founder of My Race Pass, will be on hand to present the new My Race Pass race management system and answer any questions or concerns area race tracks may have. Learn how the online-system will run from the people who built the software. Also presenting is John Gartner with a re-vamped official training covering, “You Make the Call” and other scenarios officials may face at the track. This is valuable information for any track with experienced and inexperienced officials working together for the first time.


To make this event possible, Dacotah Speedway needs at least 75 committed people to attend. Thank you to Destiny Motorsports for kindly donating money to bring Jay Masur and his Med Star Dirt Track Rescue presentation.


The cost of the weekend is $25.00 per person. Please RSVP yourself or multiple people by going online at or by emailing Dacotah Speedway has reserved a block of rooms for those traveling from out of town.
