I'm sure I'll be there, but I doubt I'll be bringing the Mach 1.

I"ll be there and hope to meet up with some forum members. If it has not already been planned, there should be plenty of time for us to have a "meet & greet" somewhere in the in-field.

I plan to be there with the Grande.  I'm concerned about the organization of this, or the potential "unorganization", but can't pass up the chance.  Should be big!  I think more of you should bring a car (overseas members I understand, but the rest of you....??).

I haven't looked into it. To be honest the group tent we get at Carlisle (which usually isn't free) goes mostly unused. I know the MCA has something going to let club members park in the same general area, so maybe that's something we can explore.

Ed - I don't know anything new.  There are club/group specific parking areas outside the Speedway by request.  From what I have read, parking inside the Speedway is "first come, first served" which is a bummer because I thought pre-registration got you in.  I was hoping to drive in/out and do some cruising around, but now plan to try to get inside the Speedway, park and leave the car for the weekend.

A tent with some reserved parking for several cars so you could come/go would be great - but I think you said the Vendor area was really expensive (cost prohibitive) to do this.  If anyone knows another angle I would love to hear about it.

We're going to Vegas.  Staying at Mandalay Bay.  Hope it's a good time!  Too far to drive in the winter from Colorado.

Yeap, had reservations for a while and the hotels filled up fast.  Still not sure which car to drive , '70 Mach or Shelby.
