Some other info:

You are welcome to enjoy your own beverages of your choice while on the bus and at the track. We recommend that you have a small cooler for the ride on the bus and have a larger cooler to put underneath in the luggage bays of the coach to fill from. We provide all of the food for the main meal at the tailgate party as well as pop and water, you can feel free to bring any other beverages or snacks to the track you would like .

While the consumption of alcohol is allowed on the bus and at the track we ask you do so in a polite manner so the other customers with us may enjoy their trip as much as you are.

Please do not be offended if we ask for ID.

Please feel free to call with any questions you may have.

Just remember to have fun, tell a few jokes, watch a good race, relax and enjoy your vacation.
