I was afraid of that since it is open to anyone. Still think I am going to go for the experience of just being on it. Got to go to Indy last year and love the pics of my car on it!

50 bucks is worth 100 to 125mph they need to lighten up a bit its a controlled inviroment.I can do that on 65 and I-20 for free.I know what its for but highway speeds is not a lure to get folks to come.now that 100 to 115mph parade lap is a lure and that has been offered for advance race ticket purchases in years past.

MINI Talladega Drive

Some Alabama MINIs are going to be meeting up Friday morning for the 9AM opening run. We are meeting at the Winn Dixie in Chelsea (Bham area) at 8AM *yawn* if any other MINIs want to join in.

I've heard that too. It doesn't fit in with the highway speeds they listed. They may have us driving around pit row pretending we are on the track! Its for charity anyway but I do hope we get some fun out of it!
