This is not exactly precise but usually .....

Friday is free practice .... all day.
Saturday usually has 3, 4 or so hours of practice then Qualifiers
Sunday qualifiers and mains....

Last year was a great time.

I will be there the first day they allow practice (when the snows gone) with my GTN48 to shake it down. I need to knock the rust off as I have a bone to pick with someone.

We usually stay here.

Hampton Inn Joliet - I-80
1521 Riverboat Center Drive, Joliet, Illinois, 60436, USA TEL: 1-815-725-2424 FAX: 1-815-725-3110

I just did a little checking and that hotel is booked along with many others in the area but there are a few with availability. In years past there has been a big paint ball tournament right across the street from the track the same weekend.

I55- Rt30 is definitely the best choice for hotel with mall/restaurant/gas station around the block. The track is really in the "middle of no where" area that there are no hotel or even restaurant NEAR the track...it need to drive for 5-10 minutes to get to something.

I55-RT30 area is about 15 minutes drive from the track....
