I'd like to come down for this but I've never tried a drive this long in the 510. Do people camp out or grab a local hotel?

Some camp and some do the hotel thing. The cool people camp. Lol.

I'm embarrassed to say the website has not been updated for a while. Ok, a couple years but check it out.

Well, remember it is all freeway driving. Typically what I do is drive the 510 as much as possible around home, to work and such as it give me a good indication of worthiness after a winters hibernation, then I drive it to Summit Point or down to King, NC to hang with one of the 510'rs then we drive to the track in out cars. I have never ever has an issue with my 510 and this will be my 18th drive to Summit Point. I'll be leaving Thursday at 0:01am as I like driving at night plus the roads are clear no traffic. It gets me to the track about 9ish am, I stop for eats in Wilks Barre PA, and generally take my sweet time. I just may stop in Gettysburg for a sight seeing tour of the battlegrounds as I do this on occasion because it is absolutely awesome. If you'd like B^2 we could meet and travel down together. Qwik510, BREBaily and I typically meet at the track on Thursday to claim our area before the RV's do. It allows a lot of time to do nothing but BS, setup your camp area then drink beers and a stroll through the pits and say high to everyone we've come to know at the Track including other campers it's awesome.

But if you can't drive down with me..

Mass Pike to 84 to 81 South into West Virginia taking exit 5 into Inwood.

Left on SR-51
.6 miles down right on US-11
.26 miles "or at next signal down at gas station" left on SR-11
4.8 miles down right on CR-1 "LeeTown rd follow sighs to Track. The LeeTown sign is small and hard to see so keep an eye out.
If the roads are wet take extra caution because the roads in that area in town and around the track were paved with asphalt and ground up tire mix which make the roads extremely slippery when wet..as told to us by local police.

I don't think I can take Thursday and Friday off from work. Unfortunately, I get a limited number of vacation days(started a new job in feb) and I need to save them for later in the year when the wife and I have a trip planned. What time do you usually head back north after the event?

Hey Mike

Bummer you missed the event it was actually really a good weekend in spite of a bit of rain Saturday but it was warm and when it stopped the cars were back on track. Yeah, I did some GO-PRO video. Just got the thing and used it at Summit. Need to go to the website and download their software for editing so I can put it all together an place in You Tube. The drive down and back was fun fun fun!!!! 510 ran great1 as usual and got 32 mpg going down and about 29 coming back. Return trip was a bit faster hehehehe.
