Getting to meet everyone, the parking lot parties, folks from GM walking around, spending money at vendor booths - all worth it. See you in Texas next year (I hope).

1. Wish they carried the tradition of coins like the 1st Fest. I'm so with you on this one but right now we only have plans for coins every five years makes them a little more special so to say.
2. Confusing why each person had to pay spectator while there were two of everything in the bags. Was $25 supposed to get two people in? It was only $20 for spectator, $100 for drivers and that was two day passes. If you all saw the track rental bill your mouths would do this...
3. Would be nice if they had open times on the drag strips for people not wanting to spend $100 to compete and all. I would like to have ran but not just a few times for $100. 100 people drag raced and that was over 600 passes for the weekend.
4. Would also be nice to have registration Thu night at the hotel and get your wrist bands then. Then not have to wait in the morning on Fridays to pay and stuff.We are working on this one for the next fest...

NO biggie for me but I heard some grumblings on day 2. Nobodies fault that it rained though. Next year I'll get all my racing done on day one and hang out on day 2.

I'll still pay the 100.00 if there is no choice but I'd def. be one that paid the 50.00 and raced day one.

I did not know that either. I paid the $100 and only intended on running once or twice. I actually didn't run as it turns out (after seeing all the broken cars 1000 miles from home). But I have no qualms about helping support paying for the track and all. I considered it an $80 donation over the spectator price. (and got a good parking spot near GM)

I had a FANTASTIC time at fest even if I didnt race. I had the pleasure of meeting some great people and watch some BA cars race down the track and through the AC course!

I can gaurantee the majority of Camaro5 members would prefer to just run for fun at a reasonable price.
It was almost ALL just for fun...

Drag Racing was 80 to 90% test and tune... we did put everyone in classes during tech, but just let everyone run all day Friday and called it qualifications whether they wanted to compete or not. Then used those times to rack and stack cars for head to head eliminations on Saturday afternoon. I think car #222 got in about 30 runs or more. We also didn't even call cars up by class until Saturday late morning so majoity of the time they could just come up and run at any time.

I had no input on pricing or payouts this year... just making recomendations for next year.

PS: Why not have a TVS2300, comp cam, black paint, orange trim, street tire, 5'6" and below class?
1) I like that too... and it may bring in more total $$$

2) It was ALL OPEN racing until Sat afternoon. It was just a little more structured and you needed to listen for your number to be called. But we ran a ton of cars through...

Oh wait... you probably didn't get out of bed in time...

This drag stuff did put a huge crimp in my parking lot time...

Had a blast; got to see some awesome Camaros besides mine/got some good ideas from other Camaro owners....The track site itself was great w/ all the Vendors who spent their own money to serviceC5community(thanks Steve@HPE 4 my HexVents & AAC 4 my ghostlights;Installed both@fest)
racing both track & GT were outstanding(like a grownup Disneyland for Camaro grheads)
Also the Hotel nightlife was just GREATTTTTT...met people from all over the US & Canada & partied until early a.m. esp. the Texas & Michigan groups(hardcore)

Thanks to the C5 guys who actually put this on last August,felt like a 20 yr old cruzin mainstreet again.....OKLACamaros.com/FB
