I know Mark would leave tuesday morning and get there tuesday night.

Where are you planning on staying?

That would be the only advantage of living here, your hella far away from everything...but it's the same distance regardless.

There is nobody going, did you see the entry list? It was big mistake to take out there, too long and too much money. I think Scott and Andrew are going with their ff 5's that is all I know. There are some cars going from Southeast, I think Jim said he had two trailers. But for the most part everyone out east is staying home. I hope the CA boys are happy competing against each other.

and TX, RM, and MidWest, and I think its economy thats hurting entry counts...

 

Mid-O is only 200mi closer for me from Houston, prob equal distance from Dallas

 

Ian - I posted a link to the place where I'm staying in the Nationals forum - $60ish/night. Everywhere else is price gouging starting at $110/night. DO NOT mention racing when talking to them

When we did the One Lap to Miller in 07 the Hotels close to the track were uber expensive. We wound up staying by the airport. Remember when Ken.

I remember that day especially from OLOA. I wish I had a worthy car, I am so sick of begging for rides that I don't even think I'll try next year. Wouldn't turn down anything that fell in my lap without taking a look though, heh.

 

I found a place closer and cheap - its about 10 mi from the track iirc considering we'll probably be doing that drive 2-4 times a day for a week

Come on, it's only 2400 miles from florida. That's 800 miles a day for 3 days. Average 65 mph thats 3 days at 12.5 hrs of towing... That's just a short trip.

 

And the last 8 hours or so are over 5000 ft... so the gas mileage will really suck.

 

Ken, I failed to find the linky to cheap hotel.

If I ever made it, my dad would come to support so we would share the driving and probably only have to stop for 1 night. Maybe Ill make the journey next year.

too far from TX, didn't even enter. I got to do it in '07 though nothing like bringing a butterknife to a hand grenade battle

I have already contracted with OPM Autosports to ship my car to Utah, and I will fly in for the event. Andrew Switlyk was going to go, but some personal issues are going to prevent him from making it. Watching some video of the track now to try to learn it, and will be part of the early track rental the days before to try to get this right. I have never been there and the California crowd calls that place home, so we shall see.
