I just booked in Bellevue and found a decent rate at a nice hotel on Priceline. ~$80/night

note that parking is $35/night lol

Any amount of money is worth it compared to the Travelodge - unless you usually sleep with crappy covers and use bleach as an air freshener.

La Quinta in Kirkland/Bellevue. $85/night parking included. Easy access to 520, across Lake Washington and a brief drive up I5. What are festivities usually like after the race?

It's an "all day'er". Those with any stamina left in the tanks head to Dicks. Tsang usually stuffs 2 in his mouth. Boyle is the spotter.

Its turnout dependent, but likely will go till 10 or 11 pm, with track teardown & award ceremony being part of that. I don't recall when we got out last year.

I hope everyone is gearing up for the race!

I wanted to let everyone know that here is an EXTREMELY limited amount of tires available for the very last race of the season. A lot of people have pre ordered their tires but I fear there will only be a few sets available after all of those are filled.

If anyone has some leftover sets they havent used up, now is the time to spread the love with your fellow racers. I appologize for the shortage, but these are the last and only sets of our tires available in the world right now.

Maybe we open the tire rule up to include sweep qts 32?

Personally I would prefer we go back to sweep QTS 32 for next year. It mirrors what our friends up north run and could mean more of them racing with us. Plus the sweep QTS 32 tires don't have the annoying tendency to peel off the rims like the team powers tires. I also like the more durable sweep rims.

Hi, New Racer here. Was looking at an overview Map and wanted to know where should we be parking?

Default Let's Do This!

OK. So. We have trophies, cups, raffle swag, and lunch all ready to go for tomorrow. My best advice is to arrive early. The Best of the Northwest arts and crafts hoopla is in the hangar this weekend--the park will be packed. It doesn't start until 10, so everyone should be able to conveniently park before then.

It's Go Time!
