Having only raced at NHIS this is my first time at VIR, what are the facilities like compared to NHIS... Paddocks, power, air, camping area??

Any pics of years past are always a nice walk down memory lane for you and a thousand words for me :)

Thanks

camping is nice. facilities are excellent. clean showers etc...much nicer then nhis. nearest food beer etc is about 20-30 mins away. (right tex??) they do have a nice concession stand though. i think even like panckaes etc...for breakfast. and if i remember, they do sell beer. 20 or so to camp though. so you can lie at the gate, or let them catch you. you DO have to pay for electricity. im pretty sure the gate closes at like 10 or so. maybe 11. so dont wait. they have credit card self serve race gas pumps. (awesome)

Anyone have solid, tested, directions from up here (boston area).
I want to avoid any place that resembles a city...

Thanks!

you can come in on 81. you want to avoid dc for sure, the bridge is still a mess, and maybe avoid richmond. although dc will be the real issue. 81 isnt a bad way to go though.

page 8 has a picture of me looking like a seventies porn star, melancholy joe standing by my yam van, and the worst collection of paddock/track photos i ever saw. of course by that stage of the trip (re: daytona 2005) you all were pretty spent. the restaurant serves pancakes AND BEER! how can nhis beat that?!?!?!?

I bet it would be exciting if you were going 15-20 seconds-a-lap faster. I'm an asshole, I know. But it's true.
