I'd like to invite all of you to join the Carolina Crew for our annual Thanksgiving meet. If you're looking for some late season racing this is THE meet to make that happen.

Questions? Reply here or shoot me a PM. I hope to see some of you there. :cool:

ITINERARY


Saturday, December 7: We travel in and have a meet & greet get together at Rob's house and then head over to the Outback for dinner that night.

Sunday, December 8: We meet at Robs house again in the morning around 9:30 or 10 AM and then caravan over to the Fayetteville Drag strip. The track doesn't open until noon. We usually grab a bite to eat at a fast food joint in Fayetteville near the track for lunch.

Noon until 5PM: Run whatcha brung! Fayetteville is the fastest track I've ever run at due to elevation and excellent track prep. For a T&T they do a fantastic job of keeping the track sticky.

Sunday Night: We'll stop at Hooters or another restaurant in Fayetteville for dinner before heading home.

LODGING


Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn or SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Southern Pines, NC for Saturday, November 30.

Most of us stay at the Hampton Inn Saturday night. For Sunday night you'll probably want to get a room in Fayetteville or start working your way home.

*We don't get a club discount on rooms since there aren't enough of us to justify reserving a block of rooms. But room rates are reasonable for that time of year.

THE TRACK - Sunday: Fayetteville Motorsports Park (http://www.fayettevillemotorsportspark.com/)

Weather, Air Quality and Track Conditions


I can't "guarantee" anything but last year we did have "mine shaft air" and incredible weather. During the 2011 meet it was a bit warmer.

As I said previously, the track prep at Fayetteville is first class!

Bump.

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday Fayetteville decided not to open this year.
:confused: Strange because they've been open for Thanksgiving weekend for the past two years. Anyway ...

Weather permitting - they will be open the following weekend.

We've rescheduled the meet date for the next weekend accordingly. I hope that some of you might consider joining us on this new date for some end-of-year racing!

I've updated the first post with the new dates.
