Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, is looking for several groups to help serve as community ambassadors for its 2019 NASCAR, NHRA and INDYCAR events. These opportunities are ideal for groups that can staff 10 to 20 positions per day for 8-to-12 hour shifts. Opportunities include positions both inside and outside the venue (whichever is best suited for your group and its interests).

Work areas include: ADA and courtesy cart shuttle drivers, ushers, ticket scanners, hospitality areas, parking sales and traffic direction, to name a few.

GMP will make a charitable donation of $9-$15 per hour (depending on department role) for each man-hour worked by your organization to your fundraising effort.

GMP will provide event tickets, t-shirts, a free lunch and beverages to all event workers.

These opportunities are much more productive than car washes, bake sales – or going door-to-door selling magazine subscriptions or gift cards.

GMP staff will work closely with our non-profit groups to keep everyone in the same zone, so that while raising money, you also are building relationships with your organization and time spent together.

Key dates:

In order to provide our fans with the best experience possible — and to ensure that your group has the ability to master the art of their fundraising efforts — we are recruiting organizations that can commit to six key dates for the 2019 season (with projected duration of event).

Saturday, June 22: NASCAR Gander Mountain Truck Series — 11 a.m.-9 p.m. shift (10 hours)

Friday, August 23: INDYCAR Pole Qualifying — 11 a.m.-9 p.m. shift (10 hours)

Saturday, August 24: Bommarito Automotive Group 500 — 11 a.m.-9 p.m. shift (10 hours)

Friday, September 27: NHRA — Noon-8 p.m. shift  (8 hours)

Saturday, September 28: NHRA — 8 a.m.-6 p.m. shift  (10 hours)

Sunday, September 29: NHRA — 8 a.m.-3 p.m. shift  (7 hours)


The team leader for each group will be required to attend one paid evening training session in May of 2019 to review job tasks as well as one paid evening training session one week prior to each event for final event details, t-shirt pick-up and credentials.

Gateway Motorsports Park also has smaller group fundraising opportunities for our mid-major events throughout the season.  If you and your team of three-to-four people want to have a great weekend of excitement, please send us a message.

GMP is looking for teams of individuals who want to be a part of something special and understand the importance of greeting guests with a smile and a friendly attitude.
