Event Details

Buttonwillow Raceway Park, Buttonwillow CA

Sep 25 - Sep 26, 2021 / Entry Deadline: September 11, 2021
Yokohama Button Turrible 2021



See Buttonwillow-specific gate process below.

As previous Buttonwillow racers know, the track has its own gate process--they charge $10 to every person through the gate, pre-registered or not.

Because of that, we're removing our usual weekend spectator charge (yes, walk-up spectators are allowed, but anyone touching the race car must be pre-registered online as Driver or Crew). So, when you arrive, check in with Buttonwillow staff at the gate to pay the $10 and sign their waiver. Lemons drivers will sign a separate waiver during driver check-in. 

All rookies must watch the Virtual Rookie Meeting

•Paddock parking is first-come, first served.
•Special reserved parking (garages, awnings, RV hookups, luxury condos) are handled by the track--contact them directly for info.

•Spectators--review the spectator info above.
•Drivers must check in separately with a valid street license at Lemons HQ in the paddock to get a Driver wristband (Crew members only need the Participant wristband obtained at the gate).

•Your team's BS/Car Tech time will be assigned. Check the schedule above for your team's time.

•Gear Tech takes place during regular tech hours. You can show up anytime--you don't have to wait for your team's assigned car tech time. If you miss it, just go the Penalty Box for a onesy-twosy inspection.
•Drivers can get their gear teched anytime--you don't have to wait for your team's tech time. Check the schedule above for Gear Tech times.

•Fueling will be in the hot pits (and track pumps). No fueling in your paddock space during the race. NEW FOR BUTTONWILLOW THIS YEAR.
•Everyone in the fueling area must be in full safety gear.
•Everyone in the fueling area must be a registered driver or crew member--no spectators.

•Don't park support vehicles near the fuel area.
•Kill switch off; no one in car; drip pan in place; and a dedicated extinguisher person are all mandatory while fueling.
•Only fueling, driver change, windshield cleaning, and cool-suit ice changes allowed in the hot pit. For everything else (tire pressure, fluid checks, engine swaps) go to the paddock.
•Full gear is not required at track pumps, but no one can be in the car and the kill switch must be off. 

•Don't forget to check in at tech if you are running Yokohama tires on your race car. Once you check in, you'll be entered in the Road Mangler LM cup, which gives you a chance to win a free set of Yokos. 
•If you want to run Yokohamas but don't know what'll work for Lemons, they've set up a handy page with a couple of the most popular choices.
