Track opens at 9am and we'll be leaving around 7:30am...depending on distance and drive time for the cruise...SAT am.
Ok, this might be what you are looking for. A better ride is one suggested earlier that you take I-10 to the Loop 202 (San Tan) and go east as it will take you close to the mountains, and some very nice scenery along the way. I would suggest coming back on the Loop 202 (San Tan) via US101 as the US60 can be quite busy on the weekends. Here is a link of the freeway system and I think the I-10 to the 202 (E) to the 101 (S) to the 202 (W), and back to the raceway would be better, faster, and more enjoyable, but that is my hummble opinion.
With the amount of cars this should be fine and all the way we can do 65-75 depending on how the cops feels about 300+ cars driving all together.

There are many great drives in AZ, and hopefully you all come back to enjoy those drives, but just don't come back in the summer unless you like 115 degrees.
