Is anyone going to have anything left running after the 1000?

Or a crew that's not completely burnt toast?

New format for this year will open up a lot of space. One day of tech on Thursday on Fremont St, then EVERYONE goes to Primm Friday and Saturday. No one has to split locations, etc. Full day of racing for limited classes on Friday plus qualifying, with spectators at Primm. Motos and Unlimiteds Saturday with two separate courses giving both groups ample time to handle business on course. Reasonable am starting times both days, racing finishing much earlier each night.

And for what it's worth, already a great list of experienced volunteers who were able to switch their schedules from March to December to help make it happen. Really looking forward to this one.

Will racers be able to park in Primm early?

one of the challenges is having trailers and nowhere to park them for tech on Fremont.

if we could get all our vehicles to Primm early than only take a flat bed with race truck to Fremont that would save a lot of hassle.

and follow up with you.

Use Cushman field parking lot down the street like we did in 1988ish it was perfect I remember the line was so long that year waiting for the police escort to Fremont street we had time to order pizza delivery TO Cushman field parking lot

I told the driver "look for the yellow Ford truck number 808 plastered on the sides ya can't miss us"

30 minuites later EVERYONE in line was ordering delivery

Good times!!

We have to travel so we need to get there the day before tech. So we end up with a camper, large enclosed trailer, flat bed, and two chase trucks. It’s a traveling Carnival.

so it wouid help to get our camp and pit set up the day before tech.

Ditto on what Mike said. Let us set up in Primm early. Also, I would love to be able to camp on the north side (similar to motos). I understand not camping in the pit area, but there's plenty of space there and much easier to camp, say 100 feet back and move the pit equipment to the pit area. Any chance? @J Prich @Kilian
