Ya, that was my thinking as well. Now I only need to figure out how we're going to get our infield parking passes. They always included one pass for every reserved RV spot rented but that was when they mailed you the entire packet. None of my ticket vouchers specifically says they're for infield parking. I guess I'll get one when I redeem the reserved RV spot voucher. I'm kind of a detail guy who hates surprises.

Any purchased parking passes should have been included with what you purchased. Mine has reserved RV and my non-reserved camping along with the ticket and the program. My wallet has 4 tickets in it. According to Abe we won't be getting anything else unless you need an event golf cart or bike pass, everything else will be the digital or printed QR code

I'll give Abe a call today. In the past every reserved RV pass received an infield parking pass as well. I have nothing that shows infield parking for our van. The RV is a self-driven motorhome. We use the van to pull the trailer for the golf cart and then park the van in our space. Usually had to put the sticker in both the windows of the van and MH.

OK, just spoke with Road Atlanta. When reserved RV owners pull in, they'll read the QR code ticket and then issue a reserved RV sticker and an infield parking pass at that time.

It's fairly easy once you get in, save to google wallet and even if the network is down the QRs have already been generated. But sounds like you're in the Aussie V8s at COTA and only a "paper" ticket situation now

I'd forget Google wallet and just print out the tickets. Relatively easy to do and you'll have them in hand. Don't like to be dependent on a phone for something this critical. You can also save the screen and print them out again if need be. I maintain a copy in the MH and also one in the van for the tickets they need. I also printed a second copy just in case.

I remember one year I forgot that I had the wife's ticket and infield parking pass with me when I drove in with the RV. A couple minutes later, I get a phone call from the wife telling me to come back to the gate because they wouldn't let her in. OPPS.

I saw Helio Castroneves on Fox5 promoting the event. I didn't realize his wife owns La Parrilla and that's why he's moving to Atlanta.

Ya, you know it's getting close when you start seeing and hearing news about the event on TV and radio.

I keep looking at the long-range weather forecasts to see what to expect. I know it's just a crap shoot now, but the current forecasts look pretty good. One can only hope they're close to reality.

I remember years past where the races were ended early due to excessive water on the track. I believe they helped the situation by improving drainage.

They ain't done sht to help, they can't really. Bottom of the Esses is a stream and they own about 5' beyond the wall there. And the lady who owns it ain't interested in letting the track do anything.

Ya, many of the adjacent landowners don't appreciate the track being there like we fans do.

Not sure what they have been able to do but it does seem that the track is less effected now v/s in the past. Maybe it's just the amount of rain since then.

I got to talking with a couple track guys on The Mitty weekend. They've done some questionable stuff in the woods to move water away from the track And the neighbor doesn't mind the track, she's not planning on selling or developing it anytime. She just doesn't want their stuff on her side, they actually tried to buy some of it years ago to access the outside of the track but no dice. Decent guys, same guys that went after the McLaren 2 years ago I think it was. Stuck throttle and right through the gravel, over the fence, in to the woods and down the hill at 6. Had to get chainsaws and do some wood cutting to even get it out. Decent evening, before they stopped Johnny O stopped by and talked a bit. He gets a sweet Caddy from GM every year

I'm just glad the race isn't next week, gonna be a HOT one again. Hopefully the heat breaks just before race week
