Thompson race, headlights?

So the Mighty and All-Knowing Google declares that sunset on race-day is 7:19pm.

 

I'm not going to beat you guys up over lighting, but that's about an hour of low light, and a half hour of "getting dark." It might not hurt you to have some lighting available. The track isn't fully lighted like Daytona, but there is enough lighting so it won't be a problem either way.

At Autobahn earlier this year we ran until 9:00pm, official sunset at 8:22 iirc, and it was quite dark by the end. We were using a decent light bar setup and I still ran off track on the final lap (due to losing sight at the exit of a sweeping turn). It would not have been safe to run after about 8:20 8:30 without headlights.
