Lots of track time is what makes USIC, Snowbirds, MHIC, etc. so appealing to attend.
Agreed

I also agree. I have been to 3 IIC races. I have never seen a show, or even put a coin in a slot machine.

I agree with Rick.. It's nice to be able to relax at the end of the day and not stress over wrenching and practice all night.. There are plenty of other races to do that at I'm not even much of a gambler myself, I just want to enjoy a nice dinner and drinks

It will be handled on a case by case basis.

Will the fact that the operator will likely be consuming moonshine be taken into consideration?

After a hectic week at work now all checked in and chilling in the Virgin lounge before our flight to Vegas.

This will be our fifth IIC and really excited to be able to make it this year. Plenty of pit bling ready...well it is Vegas!

Sadly not, It's another event on my 'to-do' list, but money is an issue.
I'll still be paying for the worlds for a while yet.

I have been trained in field sobriety testing so I guess we could do that.

Which ballroom are we in? Since this is a new venue we need to figure out where to unload cars etc closest to the track. Some of us bring way too much crap to be hauling it from from the other side of the hotel.

I Believe all of us bring way to much stuff,
but still find out something is still missing.
I have to admit that this is for sure the largest hotel I have stayed so far.
