Default “Live” from Gainesville 2018

Well we are not there yet! We are still in Belle Rose doing some maintenance things! We plan to leave first thing in the morning and drive the 603 miles straight through.

If anybody knows what’s happening there, please post and let us know. They said we could stack tomorrow and stay in our motor home so that is what we plan to do. Then we park on Wednesday where we will stay through the Gators!

Well I drove by today and over 75 rigs are in line and were told to form 3 lines and parking will start Tuesday at 8:00am . I went by the Facebook post and will arrive at 8:00am in the morning! I have been in a campground for over a week only to find out I will be at least 100 in line. Thank you very much Div2 for your misinformation! I went by again at 6:15 and all gates are locked, so I guess tomorrow at 8:00am I might be able to get in. THANKS AGAIN Div2

Their Facebook page said no racers are allowed to to stay in stacking until Tuesday, so why are so many allowed to cut ahead of the racers that obeyed their post on Facebook?

Patsy, I am in line. They told us we could leave our rigs but we could not stay overnight, but many did. The gates were open in the morning and then closed at night between 5 and 6. We are here at our own risk and would not be able to get back in after 5 or 6.

There were about a dozen rigs left here from the Orlando race. There are another 50 or so in line with most people staying with there rigs that are in line. I don't think they are happy we got here so early but they did not through us out.

They will let people stack tomorrow with no issues, just pull in like it was a national, they said they are parking through the back gate on Wednesday.

The pits are fine, no issues.

Good morning all, there are 65 rigs in line. Not many came in when the track opened this morning. The weather is nice, sunny and warm. Today is just a stacking day, tomorrow we park. The weather looks to be a little cooler this week, with highs in the low 60's and some rain late Sunday.

Don the only issue with pits is if there is overflow it goes to the roadcourse track. It is quite a distance to staging from there. I heard the area of woods between the regular pits and the roadcourse were wetlands so might explain why they don't expand the pits.
Another tidbit for anyone traveling down, I have not confirmed this but was told if a driver is seen holding a cell phone in Florida by a policeman it is a $250 fine. This does not apply to the race track only public right away.😉
I plan to be down Thursday, hopefully there's still room to park!
