I actually consider the travel/trip there (I don't travel often lately LOL) as part of the whole event/weekend festivities and I'm leaving Wednesday (as are most) so for me it's only about 7 days until the awesomeness truly begins. :thumb:

<----- very excited :fluffy:

Dose the track have waste oil drums? or a building on site that dose, and whats the use of them.

REDGAR
09-30-2011, 07:10 PM
that one might require a call to the track

98 StealthZ
09-30-2011, 09:43 PM
last time I was there they required you to dispose of your own oil, but that may have changed... I just keep an empty 5 gallon bucket with a lid in the trailer...

Remember, depending on what class you're running in you might still be able to get there as late as 3pm on Friday (or even Saturday morning) and still make the show so no one should let any minor delays/set backs keep them from attending, plan to show up and race no matter what because it'll still be worth it. :nod:

We leave out here with the rig by this time tomorrow.. SO we're officially at 1 day left also. This is getting interesting :)While we have no chance of catching Farley, it is my goal, my main focus even, to somehow catch up to you guys and maybe even catch Doug K and Steve C who are leaving from Long Island at around the same time. :D
You guys are all trailering and I'm chasin' solo with 335rwhp of thunder :lol: under my right foot but not leaving until around 3 or 4pm tomorrow.
Between fuel/food/bathroom stops and toll booths I'm sure I'll see (or pass ;)) at least one of you guys on this 700+ mile journey. :burn:

I'm sure we won't leave on time as usual though... I'm sure you won't miss us on the highway though :) We're going to drive straight through to Indy once we leave here so we should land sometime in the 4-6AM range on Thursday morning.

I'm sure you won't miss us on the highway though :)True, I don't even think the Space Shuttle would miss that red and white behemoth rollin' down the highway, even from space! LOL :D
See y'all there. :wavey:

Damn, you're usually 3rd through 10th in line. :nono:

I'm at the host hotel (got here at 3:30am, just a few minutes shy of exactly 12 hours from when I'd left NJ) and the parking lot is packed as well...but unfortunately it is NOT from racer's vehicles. :huh:
I hope these people are checking out today because there is very little parking here and no room for trailers/tow vehicles (for those not going straight to the track with them that is).

It almost looks like a rental car company storage lot of some sort, even worse across the field at the Hilton Garden Inn. :confused:

Real nice hotel though. :nod:

I'm here with the New Era crew. I didnt bring my car this year though. I brought my duramax to load up the New Era's booth stuff. We missed the party because we were busy setting up and cleaning the cars. Studderin should be arriving soon also.

I dont know many members on this site, but I'll be around and about. I'll prob spend a lot of time at New Era's booth, so stop by and introduce yourself! I'm "Big Mike".
