They have some nice shirts/jackets. If you see something you like when you arrive in the morning you may want to get it then. Lunch was sandwiches, cookies, chips, fruit and a drink. They also have snacks/water before lunch available.
I did not attend the reception.

I was there a couple weeks ago. Merc was average at best. Not many options in Color’s or sizes. Food was the same. Sandwich and drink, but wasn’t there to eat. I did hope for a better selection of clothing options.

Yea main thing is having decent weather, can deal with heat but rain would suck.

It was 85 when I was there. Super hot when in a suit, no AC and windows up. Lost a lot of weight, but got it back drinking beer later that night! Lol
Looking like similar or higher temps forecasted Mon ugh, changing constantly. Windows up on dragstrip yes, but on road course too? With NASA NE we run windows down on track even in rain. Will bring cooler bag for water.

You can have the windows down on the track and they have bottled water available. At the drag strip while you’re waiting your turn you can lower the windows. Hope you have nice weather.

You will have a blast. I was there end of April for TrackAttack and 2nd day racing school. Instructors are great and will make sure you have an enjoyable time. You will learn alot! Great running the GT500's but 2nd day all on the track was maybe little better. We had some rain, but still got out there and got after it! Thinking about going back next year for track days. Well worth it!
