Thank you. My info said no, but someone posted on Google Maps that the showers were good. Was confused. Thank you!

Showers are located at the north end of the track by the concession stand, as well as a second shower house at the southern restrooms by where you come through the gate.

Bill, might want to update the concessions line in the supps, says VIR and there are some spelling errors.  Not trying to nitpick too much.  Thanks for getting these out so early, really like the QR codes and the listing of parts suppliers, that is awesome!

@Bill Strong Gingerman has usually (always?) observed a 1 hour quiet time on Sunday mornings, and the race was stopped for an hour under parc ferme?

Do you know if we will be doing the same this year? (The Supps don't show it.)

Also - gas is usually available at the track.

Hey Bill I would be willing to supply a keg of beer like I have in the past from CYR for Friday night festivities. Maybe we can get Chisek to do a BBQ after practice.

If the event sells out, we can do that.

Woooo! Looking forward to this one (I actually know which way to turn and when at this place!)

@Bill Strong Is the track not letting us use power? Lower paddock and the woods have hookups (I think 220 even?) and is normally $20. 

 

Blue is restrooms (with showers), Green is fuel pumps, Yellow is Concessions. Gift shop (same building as concessions) usually has Ice and is where you pay for fuel.

 

 

Also worth mentioning- There's a Menards, Walmart and a Tractor supply all on 73rd street in South Haven, and a Meijer across the bridge. Menards has longer hours than most of the autoparts stores, Walmart and Meijer are 24 hour.  Meijer had the cheapest fuel when we were there last month.

 

Menards

125 73rd St, South Haven, MI 49090

 

Tractor supply

157 73rd St, South Haven, MI 49090

 

Walmart

201 73rd St, South Haven, MI 49090

 

Meijer

Seems like a great race sponsor would be Bells.   It'd save Tyler a keg and then we could pitch in and have a BBQ   

 

When Haymarket Pub & Brewery donated a few 1/6th barrels of their beer at MIS in 2014 it was epic. The beer was soooo good.

I am trying to get O'Doul's Beer to sponsor! That will be epic!

If not Bells Arcadia, Founders, even realtively small time One Well are all somewhat nearby.  Know of a guy who does some killer BBQ out of Niles too..
