Michael.. I hear ya! No one is more upset than me with the service we have got the past few years. The new sales manager assures us we will see a difference this year. I believe in him and the owners, and actually enjoy working with them (unlike the owners the past 5 years). This is all I can go on.

As far as hotel for 2007, I didn't expect a return at first as they were changing owners and could not lock a contract that far ahead for an event. I looked from Jacksonville to Miami, Tampa to Daytona. It is hard to believe, but there was nothing that would work. Some were nice, yes - but 200+ bucks a night! The hotels here get it that time of year. Another issue we faced is most don't have the space we need, or even have open dates that time of year. I looked at convention centers and fairgrounds too... no luck. Luckily, the new owners were ready a couple months ago to commit! After a few meetings - woohooo! I believe there is no better location (on International Drive). We have averaged about 20 trailers that come which makes this place perfect. The open atmosphere of the garden area trackside gives a wonderful atmosphere. And the rooms opening out allow great camaraderie and good times.

The tower rooms are the same price this year as all rooms which is good too (last year they were more).

Internet - still up in the air. But there are some great surprises to come about the location that will make it the best year yet!

Thanks for the interest and thoughts!

Thanks Todd

We'll have all the class information out soon.

Mason we are dropping the ceiling so we can have elevation changes and banking - maybe the sprinklers on to simulate overseas outdoor racing

I Hope you have a drivers stand with ramp this year for those old and in chairs.
how about a pro mod micro on-road class? you know with the 14turn motors it would not be boring.
