we'll be driving. Have to drop the dogs off to the pet hotel first, then onto KY. I'm figuring about a 12 hour drive from NJ

I'll probably be pulling a new enclosed trailer. I hit a lot of 2 or 3 day races and feel much better with my car in a trailer then on the trailer outside. So, I'll be selling my 20' open Retco.

Going to be another trailer queen again this year. Bringing a change of tires for NCM and can push ZK on the track knowing I have a way back home.

I think it is a pretty cool thing that I have a car that I can drive to the track and then put that same car on the track. The next day, drive it to the strip and put it on the strip. I know my car is not the fastest, nor am I the best driver. All that stated, it is a really good effort by GM to have a stock car that you can drive 12 hours, track all day and then drive it home.

Trailering, If I can get my nova project out of my enclosed trailer in time that is what I will use otherwise the open trailer it is. Got drag wheels tools generator etc to carry, still need tires and figure it's a long way from home to break so trailering is safer for me.

Right up until your bottom end blows it's load all over the track.

I've decided to save the tires for the track this season, and trailer the car for the 1300 miles.

First timer!

That is what GM wanted and what we all enjoy! I am just like you and truly enjoy days I get to do that. I don't have the need to be the fastest, but I do have the need to have as much fun in my Camaro as I can.

I'll be driving... only about 5 hours, but still a decent drive. Hopefully I don't break anything on the track though
