You might have to pay a few bucks to get in, but Joel should learn sometime before the show where we will be stationed at.

Joel, depending on gas prices, Autofair might not be feasable....kinda hard to justify @$200 for a weekend trip. We still want to go, but Gas prices might not make it possible We'll keep ya posted.

IIRC, It was $1.89 last autofair....and even set at 87, still looking at atleast $3.25. We really do want to go, but it is hard to justify ~$200 in gas for a 1 day event....let alone actually being able to afford it.

Brian, are you in the same boat we are?!?

Well i live in hickory now so it's not just right around the corner for me either. I understand everyone has bills to pay as well. I too have bills as well. basically you are lookin at spending an extra 40.00 for gas. I envy ya'll with a 16 gallon tank. I am lookin at 22 gallons at 3.25+ and we are already runnin out of gas up here. Believe me I know how you feel. I filled up last night and it ran me 70.00. And ya'll know how i drive. I think it might be about time to turn the distributer a lil to the right

I understand, hopefully the prices won't get as bad as we are all fearing. Th location for those staying has changed to my dads house, which is only a couple miles from the speedway in Charlotte. I'll give directions to anyone that needs them.
