The SPJ Code of Ethics touches on several specific areas, including the gathering and reporting of news, as well as ethical behavior when dealing with sources.

NASCAR Pit Notes Group- Volunteer
On March 17-19, Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) will be conducting its first major race weekend of the year. I am again looking for some aspiring journalists who are interested in experiencing sports reporting at the highest level to work as volunteer pit note reporters. Now in our 11th year, the Pit Notes Reporter program has proven to be exceptionally successful for all involved.

As the fourth major race weekend of the NASCAR season, the races at Phoenix play crucial roles in the developing story lines that begin this week at Daytona. It is the job of my Pit Notes team to bring those story lines to the attention of the media.

Please note that Pit Note Reporters are volunteer positions. The track will, however, provide food and beverages.

I am the editor of the Pit Notes at PIR. The Pit Potes are the basic bits of information used to keep the media informed of news events at the track during a race weekend. It is my job to decide what is important and what is not and then to put a brief record of the newsworthy item into the notes. They generally run 50 to 70 pages for an entire three-day race weekend.

I obtain a significant portion of the information used in the Pit Notes by communicating by radio with various volunteer Pit Notes Reporters (usually 7) and directing them where to go, who to find, and what to ask. The key is taking complete and accurate quotes (as you will see, these quotes are regarded as “gospel” by the media; they will be copied EXACTLY in newspapers and magazines) and doing so quickly. At the end of each race, Pit Note Reporters will be assigned to either get quotes from several drivers or to attend the post-race news conference and get the quotes from other drivers about what happened on the track.

Afterwards, Pit Note Reporters return to the Media Center and type the quotes (as quickly as possible) into a computer so that I can edit them and we can distribute them to the reporters. Because Phoenix is not in the Eastern time zone, it is important to get the information to the media as quickly as we can so that the stories that appear in the next morning’s newspapers on the East coast are as complete and accurate as possible.

The track will provide my staff with credentials providing full-access to the pits, garage area and media facilities. There is no assigned seat for this volunteer job and participants must act professionally at all times (e.g., requests for autographs, asking celebrities to pose for selfie photographs, etc., are strictly forbidden).

Working as a Pit Notes Reporter is an opportunity that enables aspiring sports writers to see the sport from an unique perspective; I can add that almost everyone who has volunteered to do this work at the various tracks I have established this program has certainly enjoyed the experience (though it does tend be a physically draining endeavor).

Past knowledge of NASCAR or any form of auto racing would be helpful, but it is NOT necessary. I will train people what to look for and what to ask.

Those who volunteer for the March 17-19 weekend will be able to take home a copy of the weekend’s notes to add to their clipping portfolio.

Because of some outside conflicts, I have a limited number of openings on my team. Some of my team will graduate in May, so additional openings will be available. Applicants who apply now and are approved will have priority over those who may apply next Fall.

The March 17-19 race weekend will feature two races in three days, so events will be busy but not exceptionally intense. Friday and Saturday will be the most difficult days – they are the longest (in terms of most on-track action) and feature the most diverse activity (featuring practice and qualifying sessions for multiple classes). We will have a staff meeting each day to discuss expectations for the current day and to discuss problems encountered the previous day and possible ways to overcome them.

I need a full commitment for all three days of action from anyone who wants to be a pit reporter. It is up to each individual student to make his or her own arrangements to make up any class work that would be missed by attending Friday activities at the track.

A typical day at the track begins BEFORE the first on-track activity occurs (approximately 9 a.m.) and ends about two hours AFTER the checkered flag falls; the notes produced after the end of the race are probably the most important. We generally conclude our duties two-and-a-half hours after the drop of the checkered flag. The track supplies food (at least lunch, sometimes breakfast and dinner) and beverages. Nobody is asked to work constantly during the practice sessions, but during the time trials and races, the pit note staff is quite active. Attached is the preliminary schedule for the race weekend.

If any journalism students are curious about this opportunity or if you have specific questions, I can be contacted by return eMail or I can be called at 253-220-2566 (despite the area code, I am based in New York so if anyone wishes to call, they should be aware that I am in the Eastern time zone. No calls after 8 p.m. Arizona time, please).

Those who wish to apply for this opportunity must supply the following material and use the greeting, “Dear Mr. Chuhran:”

1.) A brief statement (6 sentences or less) about why you want to join my Pit Notes reporters and why you would be an asset to my team; the statement in your original eMail pretty much covers what I want, so just review what you sent me and include a variation of it with your other material,

2.) a collection of 3 or 4 writing samples or clippings that demonstrate your writing ability (these do not have to be about NASCAR or sports – I just want to see how well you write), and

3.) a list of 3 to 6 references (names, eMail addresses and phone numbers) who can speak of your character and/or your work habits (past supervisors at part-time jobs are fine).

Being a Freshman is NOT a liability in applying for this position. In fact, I will ONLY consider Freshmen and Sophomores. I want the training and experience that you get to be available to me for future events, so Seniors and current Juniors provide only a short-term assistance. Being a Freshman actually could be advantageous to me since I could theoretically have your assistance for 10 major race weekends over the course of your undergraduate years at ASU.

I look forward to reviewing your materials. After that review, I will be in touch; please also include a phone number where you can be reached.

Please send these materials to me at pitnotes1@gmail.com.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING ALL APPLICATION MATERIAL IS 12:01 A.M. ON THURSDAY, MARCH 2.

I certainly would be available to act as a reference for any student who successfully serves as a Pit Notes Reporter and I would gladly help those students with a job description that could be used as part of a resume.
