And start at 7 am Sat?? All race engines have to be done at 9 or 10 I believe for the noise ordinance, there was a 24 hour race earlier in the year with a 3 hour break for quiet time.

Pardon my ignorance of Braselton's noise ordinances. That would present a problem. 'Last I was there (late '70s) they ran in the morning but I don't remember what time they fired up. What time can engines be started in the morning and is it so every day of the week....Sunday different by chance? Is that why the Petit is run on Saturday? (Or is it convenience for spectators to return home. I had to do the 700 mile, give or take a couple, drive home for work Monday morning a few times after Sunday's events. Not a real pleasant thang...)

It's just Sunday, and they actually run Sunday morning. Historics 'enduro' 90 min race I think runs before quiet time. It's a church thing and think it's been around as long as the track or close to it.

I'd be surprised if attendance was down at Sebring. I arrived on Wednesday to the largest Wednesday crowd I've seen in the 8 or so times I've been now. Our regular camping spot was already taken, years past there was no one even in the general area. Same went for race day, the viewing mounds were just as packed as ever.

Also, the camping on the outside of the Ullman looked busier than it has been in years. I'd say this was easily the biggest crowd in the new-IMSA era. And probably the biggest since 2008.

Well ... if you say so. I didn't get that same feeling. In any case .... I still think that guy who said "IMSA has a good series in its hands ... and could drop it and break it irreparably pretty easily. I am sort of thinking messing with some of the most iconic and best-attended races is not the idea they are looking for." knows what's up.

For those interested in the above, I've got a couple more for ya's. Since it's inception I've been an avid IMSA fan, minimal participant, and fan again.

I like these two very much. Get comfy 'cause there's a bunch of good stuff here:

First: http://www.imsahistory.com/

and foremost (to me, anyway):
