Camaro5 Fest Attendee Costs $$$

Okay so now I know what it's going to cost me in gas and lodging to get to my first Fest. For those like myself who have never been to one before what additional costs should I expect?

I would plan to bring money for the following. Some of the prices are flat fees like admission or the hotel, but food and booze are all relative:

Food
Booze
Souveniers/mods (if wanted)
gas
hotel
admission
Tires?
race fuel or refilling from racing?

Did I miss anything guys and gals?

I think the OP is referring to the cost of the events..... but I could be wrong.

If you are bringing a S.O. and/or children, maybe planning some other events in the area if they are not as "thrilled" to be there as you are. I know there is an Art institute not to far, Downtown Indianapolis has entertainment.

Last year fees were $20 per spectator and $100 for drivers for 2 days.

Do you need cash for the $100 admission or do they take Visa?

Hmm, leaving $50.00 to $100.00 at the Adams booth may not be optional.

Definitely bring a credit card if you're drag racing, most vendors there will take them to replace your broken axles, gears, etc.
Ask me how I know.

I don't want to know, I'm just glad the vendors are there helping us out. Playing hard does break things and it's a comfort to know we have vendors here that do assist us in desperate times.
