Car Number Requests for 2011 Being Accepted at Thompson

Thompson, CT — Thompson International Speedway is accepting applications for car number renewals. For ease and convenience, the 2011 registration forms may be accessed from the front page of the Thompson web site.

As in previous years, any driver who secured track points with a registered car number will have until January 15, 2011 to renew that number. If the number is not renewed, it will then be assigned to the first person requesting the number. That determination is made by the date that each request is received at the Thompson Speedway office. If a number is being requested that was not used in the 2010 season, it will be awarded on a first come-first served basis.

The 2011 registration form should be downloaded from the Thompson web site.

The car number/driver information form should then be completely filled out and mailed or faxed to the track office. As a reminder, this form is also used to generate information for payroll. Therefore, track officials ask that competitors take their time in completing the form to be sure all information needed is there and is neat and legible. Forms that can’t be read will be returned to the sender.
