Is the Atlanta Motor Speedway laps on Thursday A part of the reunion program?

Wait for the announcements.    I would expect it to be like last time where it was its own event that occurred the day before the reunion started. 

We showed up at Atlanta,  signed their waiver,  and each car paid them a small donation.

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.

Won't matter where you land, you will have a great time.   Plenty of car things to do in Florida as well.   Garlits Museum,  Daytona, etc.

I guess we land in Orlando if my friends want to.

I have been down there sometimes before. Garlits is great but to be honest Talladega is better than Daytona.
But then again I have been there 3 times so I maybe blinded..

Anyhow this trip will be the best thing next year. Locking forward to see all of you and your cars.

Thank You

Ryan

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?
Bob

Is that the Daytona I showed you? Or a different one?

Hotels seem to be booking up quick.  I have reserved a room at the Days Inn.   See everyone next year.


Also they are doing a special display at Carlisle for the Daytona and Charger 500 for those interested in going to another great event next year.   2thumbs

Hampton Inn will have rooms.   If you play with the dates, you cannot make a reservation for ANY date in October 2019 right now.    This means they have not yet posted their inventory.     I have seen this before.   

I called them at the location today and they confirmed their rooms should start showing up available to book after November 1.

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.

Just don't do like I did the last time and book a return flight too early from ATL... We tried to leave before the race, but the roads going out were closed as they converted all directions going to the Speedway! We just sat at the exit for an hour before we could head out and make our flight just in time! ;-)
Lesson learned, will spend an extra day this time!

Have any of you guys double towed in Alabama and / or Georgia?? Considering pulling the enclosed and a lightweight single axle camper down vs worrying about hotels there and back.

Does not appear that it is legal.  

I don't think you will have any trouble finding places to stay.

Yes, thanks, I've seen that... but my son at Talladega both this year and last tells me there were numerous motorhomes towing double behind them into the grounds and I wondered if anyone had first hand knowledge of double towing down there. I do know that I can't cross the border into New York State double, customs makes you leave one trailer behind as double tow is illegal in NY... but I can cross at Detroit into Michigan.

It's not just when there, it's the other 1.5 weeks or so we'll probably spend touring across into Arizona / grand canyon / etc before heading home so there's no worry of the truck / trailer being stolen in the night. If it is we'll be along for the ride!!  lol
