No drag strip = no dice.

MUST be a drag strip.

If you want an event in Bowling Green, try this one on September 7-9. It is the 2012 Holley LS Fest.

http://www.holley.com/LSFest/NewsArticle.asp?ID=11

I went last year and had a blast. I doubt it will be as big as the NMCA/LSX event you mentioned. But how can you pass on C5FestIII???

Time to take care of the Texas 5th Gens. We owe them one.

This is my opinion and ONLY my opinion.
Here's the thing though ... if you take an area of Texas & plop it over just about any part of the United States, you are going to see quite a few Camaro5 members that have made the trek to at least 2 'Fests (well, if you do that in say 6 weeks). IMO ... the fact that Camaro5Fest has been 'close enough' for a lot of Texans 3 years in a row kinda works against them hosting it.

No, because as I see it, they've been lucky to have had the opportunity to go to all 3 fests. Has it ever been close? No, it hasn't. But its also never been more than about a 2 day drive away either. The folks off in Florida, New York, and California can't say that.

<hey all, The timeline for the autox are correct in the autox thread! The times in the OP of this thread are wrong. Autocross drivers and volunteers can get all their info from the links in my signature. Either in the OP or subsequent posts- I keep the OP updated.

Where are the most Camaros sold in the USA? Texas
What state holds three of the top ten cities by population? Texas
What state will have had the best representation at all THREE FESTS? Texas



Houston to Indy is over 1,000 miles.

Dallas to Phoenix is over 1,000 miles

El Paso to Voldosta is over 1,500 miles

New York to INDY is 700 miles

New York to Voldosta is 987 miles

New York to Phoenix is 2,500 miles which is what happens when you go coastal.

New York Average 1,395

Texas Average 1,166

The numbers will be skewed for the West coast after Indy.

Is it too late to register? Will not arrive until noon on Friday. Guess I'm lucky it's a relatively short drive from St. Louis. I assume that there is always room for one more.

Absolutely, there is a hotel in Chicago that still has rooms... and maybe in Bowling Green...

J/K, come on, there is plenty of room and the Friday night parking lot party may be off the hook... retract that, every night the parking lot parties are simply amazing...

Check in with the overflow hotels, and/or start a thread looking for a room in the host hotel... Some people have to cancel and will give up their reservations as timne gets closer...
