I will try to be brief because I've had positive and negative experiences.
Attending the classic car show, Blue Suede Cruise: We drive our old cars INTO the event. There's no waiting to park. Friendly staff is at the gates checking credentials. We bring our EZ Ups, food, grill, beverages, etc and can park anywhere we want. "Roping off" is allowed overnight to save your spot. It's a good time! Show has gimmicks like the concert, free bbq, swap meet, Women's World, Neon Parade, etc. Lots of cool cars '72 & older cruising the blacktop. Portapots are plentiful but, everyone I talk to wishes they would build a REAL restroom on the other side of the track. Grade: A +
Any other Race event: The heat and reflection in the grandstands is unreal. My legs rec'd a sunburn THRU my blue jeans. Got dizzy and light headed. Staff continues to announce to buy extremely expensive beverages to "Keep your electrolites up!". Difficult to even get to the concessions or up and down those stairs. Yes - it's LOUD. Event ran long. It took hours to leave. Our row never moved so, husband off-roaded and drove aggressively in desperation. (After that long in line we were hungry and had to use the restroom again.) Grade: C -
No matter what bring: Comfortable shoes, sunscreen and cash. Even a hot dog here is $3.50 and items go UP from there. Iced tea is $6.00. Event t-shirts $22. Silver sterling necklace charm $75. It's nuts.
