About 40 min from Denver International to 5280. You should have plenty of time if racing is done by 5pm-ish.

I will certainly be back for 2014 and am trying to get more racers from AZ to make the trip.

I had a similar flight time last year and made it with no problems and I think they finished later than 5.

Racing 1 round and mains Sunday is not a problem unless that get significantly more entries than last year. But they could start earlier or run it a bit tighter and still be done by 5.

I like having a round of qualifying on Sunday.

i agree rick, one qualifier on sunday is nice to shake off the hangover, and get things moving. at this point it all depends on entries. our goal is to give people as much time on the track as possible, but we do understand that we need to get done at a reasonable time. running trip a's with limited lower mains is kind of an issue.

You cant blame Adam for wanting to make sure MHIC 2013 is the best race ever.... even if it takes a year of planning after the fact!

The cracks in the facade begin to show when your only free time in the day is the 40 minutes to/from work on the train.
