Another question for those that have done the tour before. When you start in the morning do you go back to the fairgrounds or you just drive from your hotel to the next destination?

Most people leave from their hotels in the morning and skip drivers meetings.
Thank you. This is very helful. In those cities where there is no hotel close to the venue I am choosing hotels in the way out.

I am all booked. I have been wanting to do the Tour for a long time and since this year it ends at my city, i cant miss it. It will save me a drive back. Plus the drive to the start is just over 6 hours. It adds up when you take into account all the hotels but i think it will be worth it.
I hope we can make a 7173 group to meet up and help each other. What would be the best way to keep track of those attending?

I booked them myself.

You'll have a blast! My advice is to enjoy the route and the ride. I usually hit the route at about 8 or so and try to get to the venue about 2 or 3. Hit the vendors and collect your freebies, punch your credential, wander around a bit and head to the hotel. You'll NEVER see all of the cars on any given day.

I'm game for a (or everyday) meetup. Let's PM contact info and plan for some group travel.

Another thing to check out would be the Laid Back Garage Chill Fest. Great folks and normally a good time.

For those of you that don't know, the Tour was moved to August. This was to be expected due to the virus and social distancing. I am all booked up for the new dates. Only two venues changed: Dayton and Madison, WI. I hope I can meet as many of you as possible.

August 23: Summit Motorsports Park; Norwalk, Ohio
August 24: National Trail Raceway; Hebron, Ohio (NEW VENUE AND CITY)
August 25: Indiana State Fairgrounds; Indianapolis, Indiana (NEW VENUE)
August 26: WWT Raceway at Gateway; St. Louis, Missouri
August 27: University of Illinois, State Farm Center; Champaign, Illinois
August 28: Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds; Davenport, Iowa
August 29: Chicagoland Speedway; Joliet, Illinois (NEW VENUE AND CITY)

I'm going! New hotels booked and ready to roll. It would be fun to cruise together. I'm looking forward to some top down, cigar smoking therapy.
