            Safety Tips by Jason Wood of Wizard Racing

It's about that time again, the race season is around the corner.  As the new race season grows closer, we start our preparation and develop our new strategies or game plan to take on the New Year. Many of you have routine rituals at years end and seasons beginning. The key to any successful team whether it is football, basketball, and yes, even drag racing, is preparation. Here's a list of just a few key pointers that every racer and / or team should look at.

  • If you store your car over the winter with anti-freeze, make sure you drain it and replace it with a non-glycol based fluid or water. This not only is a rule for most sanctioning bodies and tracks, but also is a major nuisance to anyone behind you in the staging lanes who just watched you douse the racetrack with anti-freeze. Anti-freeze, for those in question, does not evaporate and cannot be cleaned up with oil based solvents like lacquer thinner and causes a major cleanup problem for the tracks.
  • Another very cost effective safety component that many racers tend to want to overlook is a diaper. Diapers are more than worth the expense. A non-SFI diaper is usually around $150.00, which is pennies in comparison to what oil under the slicks of a 100+ MPH race car can cost. Some tracks even offer additional win money to those winners who have a diaper.
  • Check your safety equipment. Check for outdated, or worst yet, frayed seatbelts, torn fire suits, cracked helmets, the list goes on.

We all are in the same boat when it goes to wanting to spend money on these items because it doesn't make us go fast. While sliding upside down on your roof, on fire, I assure you, you won't be thinking about how much ET you shaved with that new carburetor.

I'll leave you with another we tend to not worry about 'til it’s too late, stopping. Most racers bleed the brakes the day they were new and never think about them again. Brake fluid over time absorbs moisture which eventually leads to brake fade, and in really bad conditions, boiling which can cause lock-ups. Check the condition of your fluid. Once again for the small amount that brake fluid costs, it doesn't hurt to replace it every other year depending on the storage conditions and amount of driving done with the car.

For you guys who were forced to put that decorative bag on the back of your racecar, Use it occasionally. Most racers buy a parachute because some sanctioning body says you must have one. Before the season starts, take it out of the bag and open it up. Parachutes are not as hard to pack as people make them out to be. Sprinkle a little baby powder in them as this prevents the material from sticking to its self while being crammed in the pack for long periods of time.

That's all I've got for now. Hope everyone has a safe and successful season.

The first effort was to put on a small car show, two race cars and Mr. Willie asked Mr. Ray O'Conner to bring his three Jr. Dragsters, along with their drivers and crew, also supported by Ms. Crystal, for the students of the Auto Tech classes.

Students from the Welding Program were invited to attend. The Welding Program is part of a three Technology Program being presented at GOHS. The third program is a Medical Technology Program.

The first meeting, on November 11, 2014, consisted of Mr. Warren Birkett, President of Baton Rouge SMART Program, Mr. Willie Beathley of Drag Race C0-Op, LTD. Mr. Skip Holbert and Mr. Tarrus Jones, President of Bracket Masters Racing Team and Mr. Benjamin Baker, Instructor, GOHS Auto Tech Program.
