PLEASE NOTE REGARDING COVID-19:
American Hydroplane Events has created an extensive COVID-19 Protocol and Process for the screening of all personnel entering the Pits, and for other important actions to make certain the event is Safe and Healthy.

If you do not meet all criteria, you will not be allowed access to the Pits and will be given appropriate instructions. Once in the Pits, cloth face masks are strongly encouraged at all times possible and Social Distancing will be expected whenever possible. Sanitizing equipment should be frequent.
