Memphis is a large airport and easier to get in and out of. I dont believe the airport in Jonesboro is very large. It's an easy drive from Memphis to the track though and will be a lot cheaper.

Yeah EA is right, Memphis is the way to go. And the drive is gravy.

This reminder taken from the first post of this thread.

Pits:
We will have a tent large enough for about 120 racers to pit comfortably inside. These spaces will be reserved for those racers who are traveling from outside our area. All racers who wish to reserve a spot in this area must contact the shop to make arrangements. (870-933-0479) The tent spaces will be reserved (for persons living outside our area) through June 6th. After June 6th any remaining spaces will be available on a first come first serve basis. For racers who live within our region or any racer preferring to pit outside, there will be plenty of space for canopies and trailers. I will have ample AC power for everyone. Compressed Air will be provided, as air compressors will not be permitted unless you are running a generator.

Attention Travelers! These spaces will only be held for you until June 6th. After that anyone can take them.

Default Preceding criticism with "Don't take this the wrong way" doesn't make it ok!

Ok, I tried to be proactive with this response and put more than an hour between the stimulus (reading the previous post) and response (writing this post).
First guys were bashing the condition of the track and now my video? My purpose at the track is to watch my son race and help him with his car. I take pictures and video because I enjoy doing it. In the past three weekends at the track I have taken more than 1000 pictures. You did not watch a 4 minute race video you watched a 4 minute video of a day of racing. It was a compilation of several races throughout the day as well as a few selected pictures. I spent almost 4 hours of my Sunday going through pictures and video and putting this together because I thought people would enjoy seeing some highlights of the days events. I didn't realize at the time I was making a video for drivers to scout the track.

My only conection with the track is that my son races there and I consider Q to be a friend. When I volunteer my time to help with the track, video, pictures, etc I would prefer either a good job, thanks, etc. or no comment at all rather than criticism. I am sure most other volunteers feel the same.

You the man John. The video has been well received by most. And if not who cares! I like it, you like it, and cpt. super glue likes it.

Besides Im sure this other dude just had a bad day or something. Or he did'nt realize the intent (or lack there of) of the video. He did say "dont take this the wrong way".

Anyway back to the regularly schedule programing.

PS Attention locals, please dont bash the video critic.
