How did you pick your race number? I just submitted my request for numbers to USCRA. Numbers are based on my kids' birth dates...I was just wondering how others picked their numbers?

I requested my numbers back in October, and have not heard yet what one I would get. I asked for 55 as my first choice as that is when I was born, 288 my 2nd--simply it is my acct # at my lab, and finally #14 because I always liked that number 7+7 is 14. I always know that and that is my limit on Math. I never can remember what you have to add to 8 to get 14.......I'm an artist not a number guy!

Hope I get 55.

Must be the season. I just sent in my request too,
used birthday numbers. Thought about requesting
1024 (power of two) but then chickened out.

The track would just issue me a number when I registered. But then again bracket racing drag racing is more of a show up and race kinda deal.

Does anybody know if flat track requires you to pick a number? Huey from 6th street has been kinda leading me to flat track racing and I think I may take the plunge this year.

Geeto, you can just pick your number in AMA Flattrack. A lot of the NY district riders use 3 digit race numbers, but traditionally its 2 digit with yellow backround for amatuer, white for expert.
If you need contact info, or just another perspective, give me a shout, I'd be glad to help you out. You thinking 'bout Electric City? It's a great track. I'm always an outsider from Vermont when I show up there, which is OK, 'cause nobody knows whether I'm fast or slow.
I saw the article in Cycle about the 6th Street shop, and they mentioned flattrack, I wondered if they race at E.C.
