Welcome to Round 1 of CRA at Buttonwillow Raceway Park! We are excited to have you all join us for some amazing racing at our home racetrack.
For those of you who are new to our club, below is a brief rundown of what to expect at Round 1.
Friendly reminder that pre-registration closes at midnight February 8th (Wednesday). Please Pre-Register and avoid the $45 post registration fee. If you have trouble signing up, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. If you are track side and would like to sign up for the races, check in with our registration office located in the BRP tower, 2nd floor.
Pre-Registered riders will go straight to Tech Inspection with your motorcycle.
For the racers that opted in for the Premier Tech option, our team will come to you! We do require you to check in with our tech inspection team (separate line) to obtain a glow stick that needs to be hung on your motorcycle handlebar. This will assist our staff in locating you. However, due to the sheer size of the paddock, you may be sent an SMS message to locate you and your pit area so keep those cell phones close by.

If you rented a transponder, you will be issued the transponder, fully charged, at the time you are getting your motorcycle inspected. If you do not have a transponder bracket, they are available for purchase with our tech staff for $10 (cash only). Please remember to return the transponder to any CRA staff member at the end of the event. Failure to return the transponder will involve a $500 replacement fee.
For those of you that have yet to pick up your hard copy CRA race license and swag bag, check in with registration and they will assist you.
We will be recognizing our 2022 Club Champions and 2022 Class Champions trackside after our Saturday races. We will be dishing up hot off the grill tacos with sides. Everyone who pre-paid to attend the festivities can obtain a wristband from registration. Should you want to attend the ceremony and not eat, we welcome you to join us at no cost to you. If you wish to join us last minute for dinner, wristbands can be purchased with our registration office for $30. Cash only!
In addition, we will be giving away prizes from our sponsors to all 2022 riders that raced with us last year. Don’t miss out on your chance to possibly win!
To keep things exciting, expert racers registered for the CTML Consultants Gold Cup (CRA’S Premier Race), will get you the opportunity to experience a “Pro-Start” just like the pros! Go out for your sighting lap, grid up with your stands/warmers/umbrella girls, etc., interviews, pictures, warm up lap and then finally the race. Get your crew ready for this as it is not a one-man job!
