Subject: OCQMC Delays First Race


First Race Delayed

Race Families,


We are heartbroken.


Due to the mass gathering limitations by NYS we have to postpone opening one more week. With current limits, we will have to turn away some families. Since this will not create a fair racing environment for ALL drivers, the OCQMC BOD made the heart wrenching decision to CANCEL racing on July 5th.

We truly want to see EVERYONE at the track and without a limit on the number of drivers that can race.


This Sunday’s Race and Picnic is CANCELED. We will have our picnic on July 12th.


Please stay tuned. We will keep everyone informed through our Facebook page, our website, and via email.


The OCQMC Board of Directors


Track Opens for Practice Friday

Race Families,

Your OCQMC Board of Directors is pleased to announce that our track will open 2 days earlier than scheduled! We will start allowing practice by our full members tomorrow, Friday, June 26, 2020. The track will be open from 8 AM to 8 PM.

Please follow CDC and NYS DOH Guidelines while at the track:

· Masks and social distancing

· NO spectators

· No more than 2 adults per driver

· At least 6 feet between trailers

· Only one team on the track at a time

Associate and Out of State Members: Please email OCQMC when you would like to practice so we can help you find a Full Member to sponsor your practice time!


Please keep in mind while you are practicing:

· Get out at least one fire extinguisher

· Sign the release waiver found in the tech shed

· Dress your driver in ALL their safety gear (driving suit, helmet, gloves, closed-toe shoes, and a neck collar or head and neck restraint system)



Note: the softer walls are not fully repaired. There are some rough edges to the plastic. Should you need to push the wall back into place, be cautious.

The first points race will be Sunday, July 5th. The concession stand will NOT be open, however, we will have a family style picnic, plan on bringing something to share!


Good Luck Racers!

"Volunteers are not paid - not because they are worthless but because they are priceless"
We are reaching out to you, our race families to help us make our club a more memorable and successful organization for the kids.
Nominations for Vacancies
At this time, we are accepting nominations for the role of President of the Board of Directors. All nominations are due to the club by email at no later than June 7th. Voting for this position will take place at the Board meeting on July 8th. You must be a full family member to vote.
We are also taking nominations for an anticipated vacant Board of Director position. Again the nominations are due to the club by email no later than June 7th. If there is a vacancy, voting will take place at the Board meeting on July 8th.
We also are in need of a Concession Stand Manager. This person(s) will need to make sure there is adequate stock in the stand for each race or event as well as work with the club to ensure there is proper coverage on race day. If this is a role of interest to you, please email the club. The concession stand is a great fundraiser for our club with the funds used to help with driver’s gifts, fun activities as well as normal operations of the organization.
New Fence #1 Priority
We need a post hole auger for a skid steer & people to work together to get the fence up. This is the number 1 priority for club this spring. Contact Interim President Joe Hawksby Sr @ (315) 481-6826 or Vice President Chris Lupa @ (315) 591-5307 if you can help!

We have TONS to do at the track! You want to race? We ALL need to do our part!
From cleaning the concession stand to replacing track walls, there are a lot of jobs to get our facility ready for Race Day. Coming together in small groups we can knock out these jobs in record time.
To do YOUR part, contact Interim President Joe Hawksby Sr @ (315) 481-6826 or Vice President Chris Lupa @ (315) 591-5307 to coordinate what needs to be done at the track and what YOU can do to help!
Track Sponsors
Signs, Signs, Everywhere There’s Signs!
It’s that time of year again! Each year, we seek sponsors for the track to support the club’s mission putting kids first. We hang Sponsor Signs on the track fence to promote them. If you got a sponsor in the past, please contact them again for the 2020 season. If you know of a CNY Business that believes in our mission - New sponsors are always welcome!

Speak up and help make the sure your child’s OCQMC experience is a fun and rewarding experience.

NE Titan Tire Rule
The NE Titans Series has voted on a new tire rule starting with the 2020 season. The rule is as follows:
Only one set of right side tires is to be used for heat and A feature. You may run a different set of tires in lower mains.All tires are to be checked in and marked no later than scales after heat race (same as engine sealing/painting), failure to do so will put you at the back of the last race (tail of the lowest highest main). In case of a flat right side tire, you may not use a new (sticker) tire to replace a used one. All flat tires must be approved by the Race Director. In case of a damaged wheel, you may replace the bent wheel with a different wheel.
