I had a blast today as a first-time corner worker. It was the best seat(s) in the house, I will never want to be watching from the stands again.
For anyone wanting to see the best action, volunteer as a corner worker next season. The people are great, the volunteers get the best (free) lunch there, and you can't get a better view of the racers than from the infield. As a prospective racer next year, it was a valuable learning tool, as you can see the braking points, lines through the turns, throttle on points, etc.
Thanks to the organizers and the other volunteers for making me feel welcome and showing me the ropes.
