Final Lap Timing Group has grown and is continuing to grow! We went from timing 5 races in 2020 to 52 races in 2023. In 2024, our future is bright and exciting, as we are looking to support over 80 races and we need more "Spikesters" (race timing teammates) to support our growth!
As a Spikester, you will be a part of helping many great events happen. Most races are on the weekends with a few events taking place on Wednesday and Thursday during the high school track & field seasons. This is a great opportunity for extra income, and to learn your way around race/sports management business. Applicants must have reliable transportation to get to races and be willing to learn. We will train you in everything else you need for race timing!
