A Solution (?) from Oregon

The Oregon County Fairs are using MOC insurance, offices located in San Francisco. We tied all of our racing dates together into one policy, which gives 21 total racing dates for the underwriter to cover. This seemed to give them a better risk picture and we were able to get a 500,000 policy for 5% less than last year.

I think there are a lot of ways small tracks can better do what we are doing. Unfortunately, most of the organizers of these events are volunteers who have other lives they live and are limited in the time they can give to the events.

Too bad there isn't an organization of small race meets. Our challenges are growing. I hate to see any track be forced to quit running for any reason.
