> Glad to have you and your 83 Q (the original S-Car?). We'll meet at the
Hercules exit off I-80 East. Directly across from the stop sign is a gas
station and small shopping center -- we'll hook up there at 8am. Plan to
leave by 8:30. A couple of cell phone #'s: in-car, (which only works, if
I'm in the car), is 510 703-0537 and 510 715-6720.
> I read that they've reconfigured things at Sears, so I'm working on old
info here. Will Call was always in the field accross from the track. They
always had signs directing one there, so if it's moved, they'll probably
have new signs. I used to pick up free tickets there often, then head back
to the main entrance. The corral last year was up the hill by Turn Two.
They asked us at the main gate, if we wanted to park there and charged an
extra $5, I believe. View of the track was good and we were able to revel
in the Audi-ness of it all. :-)
> I know that they've opened a new entrance down the road to handle the
NASCAR crowds. I would think, that even if they direct you there, that you
could circle the track back up to Two. Probably worth checking
www.searspoint.com to see if there is any info.
> Looking forward to seeing you there. I'm riding the motorcycle up Friday
with a couple of friends, but will have the 510 715-6720 phone with me.
Fridays are great -- $5 entrance, no crowd, chance to see the cars close up
and chat up the drivers.

party have tickets, while one guy needs to go to will call. Is that a big
pita? Do you know where the will call is? (I guess for NASCAR they use
entrance #9 or something, but on non-nascar...?) Anyway, I want to help this
guy out and give him a ride, but not at the expense of missing out on the
corral parking. Please let me know anything you can find out.
