RSI also has a NASCAR safety school at the beginning of the year where NASCAR representatives train RSI marshals on the latest safety requirements of the series. NASCAR issues RSI members with scanable ID cards which are scanned each day at the morning meeting for a NASCAR event to track the marshal’s participation with the series.
