Nah I'd rather watch it on TV and see the whole race, rather than just one corner.

I only missed it once in the last 10-12 years. I skipped it thinking the AMA was racing in Joliet. Then all the riders wouldn't ride due to safety concerns. (They were right)

I haven't even checked. I made our hotel reservations a month or so ago because they fill fast. We camped at the track before but, or course, didn't get any sleep. Usually, for the AMA races it's $25 per day for Saturday or Sunday and about $40 - $45 for both days. Pit passes were only $10-$15.
