Yeah!! Just looking to get a max load to save us some $ and it's more fun to have a big, active group in the pits.

Ps.
We arrive there Friday afternoon with plenty of time to drool in the museum

$$$$ to tight right now but I would love to hit that track possibly in Nov.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

What's a guesstimate of the cost to get there and back per person?

Thanks

Without knowing how many we have, there is no way to divide it up. On the face of it Barber is about 1300 miles rnd trip. 1300/10 = 130 gallons at $5 = $650 fuel cost. To simplify things my brother does all the track meals, so food will be another 10-20? Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. The road meals are whatever we decide on, on the way.
Ashwin can tell you how disappointed we all were when we mistakenly stopped in a dry county on the way back


Lets say $700/4 = $175 and let's go even more conservative and say it's $200 including food.

The good news is diesel is significantly cheaper outside Illinois, and it's Barber, man, it does not get better. And we have all winter to pay off the debt.

Caveat
A camel may fart near a mid east oil rig and prices shoot up even further

We are most definately going in OCT. How full we are is the only question.
