Edit: and I wouldn't be alone I know of at least two other coming from Florida with trailers that more than likely will be in the same boat.
Just drive on into your Hotel, no big deal. Just want to help out where we can with the Thursday drop offs.

I've parked at a million hotels with my car & trailer. I wouldn't stress about it.

Oh okay wasn't sure if the hotels would allow the trailers since there would be so many cars.

These hotels have a lot of big trailers and oil field workers who are regulars. One of our problems will be trying to get their big trucks and equipment out of the parking lot or at least in one corner.

Which Hotel are you at? The Holiday Inn Express is a good one for trailers.

Baymont is perfect. Should be space in the general area for trailers etc. You can also leave the trailer at the track until we leave on Saturday

Hey Tim....those are more than likely the "hospitality suites" set up by the race teams and are indeed temporary. If you are talking about what I think you are.

Was just there yesterday, the white structures are the NHRA Nitro Mall and hospitality tent, theres no permanent structure where the trailers are going. And it seems im not bringing a trailer, the entire brake system went out on the Camaro so I wont be racing, but still plan to be there to hang out.

Here's the revised map... Trailers will be at the end of the grandstands.

Lot's of ways to get back and forth to the trailer parking.

Drags will be using the return lane right in front of the grandstands to keep them totally away from CamaroX. The North end is wide open with lots of roads and suck but there is a gate at the top to get in and out of trailer area. Others may want to park in there as well.
