    Re: 2019 Venues!

    Bristol in 2009 was the drag strip for the event on Friday & over to the Speedway on Saturday morning for the Long Hauler event. Giving away new Camaros & crate engines. No Saturday Long Hauler events anymore & no free car or engine give-aways anymore.
    I enjoyed the route last year but not excited about more midwest farm land this year. We are planning a couple of days.

      So are you saying you won't be sticking with the route this year??

        We are going to run the route from Concord to KY Speedway, spend the night in Florence and make a loop through PA, MD, DE and VA. Sharon has never been to PA an DE, they are on her bucket list. If we go to a venue, we will park with the spectators. We have been to Indy and Norwalk. For the last several years we have not spent any time at the venues, punch our cards, get the magnets and head for the hotel.

          That's all we do. We've heard the commercials.

                I don't know. The drives the last few years have been better then before in my opinion.

                  I guess they do the best they can. Green Bay, Springfield, IL and Mobile were pretty bad several years ago.

                    How long ago was Green Bay. I've been doing it since 2007 and don't remember ever going there.

                        Thatís right. Lambeau Field double booked us along with some religious group, it was a mess.
