yes, but go to the tuner show last, or you won't see everything else. Lots of fine ladies and you won't want to leave, lol.

I could be wrong, but I believe the Tuner show is one day only, Friday. All the racin events take place Sat/Sun. But to answer your Q, yes, plenty of time to see it all between quals ...unless you're running multiple classes. Then it could strain time a bit. I know I had plenty of time to help corner, take over 1500 pics, help friends pit, relax and have some grub, help Binky and Greg bring in the kero heaters and fuel, and prep/race my own ride. Wheewwh... was a busy beaver last year :P

i would bring extras there is a guy who brings a trailer and has a lot of stuff but its unorganized cause he has s much stuff in a little trailer. the line goes real slow and when i got to the front he told me he knows he has it but he has to find it come back in 20 minutes. he prices are real good though amd i give him props for trying to bring some stuff people need, there jsut so much stuff to bring. my buddy ended up getting some hitec servos off him the TG ones and he got a awesome deal.

the dirt can be loamy the first year it was loamy and a little bluegrooved and last year it really bluegrooved well. id say it was easy on the tires and a soft compund is in order. layout is different every year there are videos on youtube it was cool

You'll need tables and chairs. Also a extension cord for power.

Man! I was really considering going to this race but, between the Race entry, ADMISSION! (which I still do see why we have to pay if were racing), Hotel, being freezing cold after spending $200! I don't think I'm gonna make this one.

They have to charge admission otherwise anyone and their mother could walk in. It allows you to walk anywhere in the building to watch other events. Why will you be freezing cold? The pit area will be smoke free and heated. The arena has heat and ventilation. I'm sorry you feel otherwise as I can guarantee you'll have a blast. It will be worth every penny.
