There are many available volunteer positions on race weekend, some more attractive then others, however all need to be manned. This is an ideal opportunity if you would like to be involved with what it takes to put on an event that attracts 3000+ folks, need to get in some time for a merit badge, looking to start a promotion/sports business.... just like to be part of something, or are in need of a few bucks.
There also is still available charitable positions for Cape Cod based non-profit organizations that want to be involved and associated with a dynamic sporting event on Cape Cod. The Non-Profit must be willing to be actively involved in this event.
