With the 2018 Talladega event this weekend I thought I would bring this back to the top!
You have one year to get ready for the chance in a lifetime AERO car event that may never be repeated again!
Hope to see you all there!

Like everyone, I am looking forward to the information when you have it. Planning on bringing all 4 of my wingcars and have marked off the calendar already. There is a 50/50 chance of a 5th wingcar I will bring (2nd Daytona) that is hidden in the hills here in southern indiana-it has been unknown for 40 years, but is not really a barn find, just not shown or displayed. Since I can't pull all 4 on 1 trailer, I guess Reliable Transportation will have trailers going there?

You don't need Reliable Transportation.  You need four drivers.

Hoping for a full list Devil and the recommended hotel(s) etc for this gathering, as well as how to get tickets to attend everything.

Working hard to get my 'Bird down there... from up here in chilly Ontario! Just gotta get my Bee done first so I can start cleaning up the Bird. yesnod

Here's the list of Hotels at least.  Tickets will be up on the Wellborn site when it's all ready.

Super 8 by Wyndham Alexander City
Days Inn by Wyndham Alexander City
Quality Inn
Hampton Inn Alexander City
American Inn - Alexander City

This is the only one that is not recommended, but still around in an emergency.

Thanks! So what would check in day be?.. the day before everything starts? What day would that be and until when?

If I haul down with my truck and 24' enclosed, what's the drill for parking.. assuming car comes out of trailer and is what gets parked at hotel with everyone else's cars. I hear there is a "rig" yard somewhere.

If nothing has changed, Thursday the 10th will be Atlanta Motor Speedway for track laps.   There will likely be a hotel in the Atlanta area Wednesday night the 9th if you plan to attend.    Otherwise, everything moves to Alexander City by Thursday night.     There is no reason to get into Alexander City earlier than Thursday.  

Most of the hotels do not have room for trailers.     In the past, we use a large shopping center parking lot nearby for the trailers and motor homes.    Most people will keep their cars at the hotels.  

On the list of hotels, the other non-recommended place is the American Inn.     Several people managed to escape there the last time after checking in.     Here is a review from someone who stayed there during the recent race weekend a few days ago.

THANKS! I assume hotels will book up pretty fast and would be best to get something soon, even if I need to cancel as the event gets closer? I haven't been to Alabama in 29 years.

Is everything done by the Sunday.. so check out Monday?? Or ??

Sunday is Talladega, so it depends on how deep you get into it.  You can head out after the laps and such.  Many people hang around for the race, which lasts into the afternoon.  So it is up to you.  But the Talladega laps and such are the end of the reunion events.

The trailers come with us up to the track.    There is plenty of room.    Very few people go back to Alex City on Sunday night.    Being southeast of the track, it's an hour in the wrong direction for most people headed home.

Whichever one you are staying at.    icon_smile_big

There is no particular host hotel.   There isn't one big enough for all of us.
