The past 4 years have sucked for me but 2020 really keeps delivering. At this point they should let everyone make their own risk assessment and live their lives as they choose but the government is drunk on power.

Due to some expert advice from Andrew I was able to get a hold of the track and they sorted out my issues and have now issued me a camping pass.

We were noticing that parking is free now, so how will they police who sleeps at the track be beyond me.
Yeah, we missed out on camping passes.
We usually wait until after the shipping date so we can get everything at will call.
They aren't even allowing any camping at our usual spot this year.
Might have to do some sleep in the car action maybe.

I talked to the folks at Lanier across the street yesterday.
I said, "Hey, if y'all want to make some extra $, you should seriously think about making some space available for tent campers that just got screwed out of their campsites for Petit Le Mans."
He sounded intrigued, so maybe they'll do something.

I hope they do something. Must be really hard for those campers to miss out, hope a compromise is reached. Anything that can help them Iím sure will be appreciated

I would not at all be surprised if Lanier looks in to what they would need. I do wonder if the county would let them though, if there's such restrictions in Hall. The overflow Tuesday night crowd used to stage there and my first early arrival I spent a night there in the truck. They usually rent the track out for staging so getting there before Wednesday would be tough but after that there's plenty of space above the track.

I just can't imagine it being anything other than a sh1t show inside. Are they going to boot out people who are drunk and make them go home? Are they going to chase people out of the joeb honorific camping woods? There were at least 5 campers set up in the Turn 3 parking area at the Labor Day race, there was no camping there at all but they were there Friday and Sat. I guess if you show up at the gate with a camper and no pass they might send ya out but a tent buried under a cooler and kids stuff, or in the back of the van? How would they know and decide you're camping? Hell my chairs, small tent and other gear live in my truck, would I have to unload stuff that stays there year round just to enter? Show up in a minivan with blankets, are they going to say you can't because you have blankets you carry all the time in the car and might camp? And do we think the track guys are going to police it? I doubt the Hall county officers want to, the only time we've dealt with them was noise late and all they wanted was turn it down and get back in the car. It all makes me think they were told this Monday by the county management who already hate the track, new residents all crying about the noise but you moved there so deal with it, and the track had to deal with the changes. I wouldn't be surprised to see them deal with it like they usually do alcohol. One ass will get on a power trip and ruin the entry for everyone. Everyone else won't really care at all, have your tickets ready and let's keep the line, and money, moving.

Thankfully I already have my stuff and they stamped the right spot on my card this year so hopefully I'll get a camping pass with my ticket. But everyone who used to camp in closed spaces are gonna be hitting 3/4 hard I'd guess. Might be an early Tuesday for me. Also makes me wonder who of our usual neighbors won't be there now and if I can stake a claim to a grassy area instead.
