Where I have seen those opportunities pop up is on Facebook, randonneuring-club message boards, and through personal contact with people they already knew. A lot of these ultraracer people know other racers (and support people) all across the country.
Probably work best to volunteer for something less critical (ie, shorter) if possible. IE, the 500-mile type races that require follow cars.
The ideal candidate would also be a bike mechanic that doesn't need much sleep, but sometimes I think it comes down to warm bodies.
Some of the events can also use volunteers- no relation to crewing, but still a learning experience.
