Adopt A Fence at the 2024 Shootout

Are you a parent eager to cheer on little Billy in his race? A professor looking to distribute homework to students hundreds of miles away? A secret admirer of the Formula team captain? Or perhaps a small business hoping to fuel hungry students after a day of racing? Whoever you are, you can send them a message!

Let's face it, the bike fencing we use for crowd control doesn't come cheap. It's crucial for the Pittsburgh Shootout that we have enough fencing to ensure the safety of students and spectators, keeping them separated from dynamic racing areas and hazardous zones like the High Voltage inspection and storage areas. That's why we're turning to the community for support.

While sponsoring the event might be beyond reach for many, a small donation of just $15 can cover one 6.5ft section of bike fence. Your message, written by you at checkout, will be printed on a 8.5x11 sheet of paper and attached to the fence you've adopted. Whether it's words of encouragement or a fun drawing (let's keep it PG!), we welcome it all! If you'd like to submit a drawing or a photo instead, make sure you reach out to

Our goal is to raise half the cost of the fencing, totaling $690. With your help, we can reach this goal and send positive messages to our student competitors. Join us in making this event safe!
