Paul I didn’t want to say anything to spoil your good time but when my wife and went to the spring race a few years ago I thought it was one of the longest days of my life. I was also ready to go after about 200 laps but since we rode with someone else we had to stay until the end. The food and beverage was very overpriced and low quality. I said many times that the only way I would go back would be if I had suite tickets and transportation to and from the front gate.
I also heard there was an incredible amount of empty seats. Probably the economy was the main reason for that.
