    Short_Crank Just another machinist.

    18 hour drive makes this a tough decision for a spectator. Since you are calling it a "MUST GO" event. I'll do what it takes to get there.

    Don't drive.....FLY. Get to the event and i am sure you can catch a ride from one of us!

    Daves69 Too many cars too work on

    Make sure you fly into Greensboro NC. Not Raleigh or Charlotte.

    Wild Bill See you soon

    Peace

    The facility is about 30-40 minutes minutes from either RDU or GSO airports. There are a lot more flights to RDU.

    Not too thrilled to be running 1/8 mile, but I'll be there. I heard it was a good time last year, but I needed to stay home and nurse the wife after surgery.

    Just want to thank TA performance for coming on board again as a sponsor.

    Just want to add another sponsor to the list. Rockauto.com just came on board for the v8 class.

    I am taking orders for parts to be delivered Friday morning to this event. Jake--Is there a particular event area where I can park my truck packed with parts?

    You can park wherever you like. Last year we had most of the v8 guys right in a row to the right as soon as you drove in. The facility is small so everyone is close.

    Waiting to hear back from a few more sponsors to see if they are in. We are pretty close to making it a no extra charge to race the class. I think keeping costs down for everyone is important and helps out all.

    I'm pretty sure there are people there very EARLY. It's about as laid back as you could get. A very nice venue.
