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!
Is the road from the road course dirt?

"Cooter", I live in Florida and have never heard of that law.. I'm not saying it not there but I have never heard of it.. That being said if you are stopped for another violation and were on the phone non hands free they can write you for distracted driving.. That's my interpretation of the law... Hopefully we have a trooper or sheriff's dept. on here to clear this up... I will ask my wife tonight... She was a Dep..Sheriff for over 20 years. She will also know...

Last I knew, either way out of the road course to staging there were sections of dirt you traveled on.

Actually the road course area is some nice pit area. The roads are paved in that area and the grass is real nice. Other than being so far to the staging and the gravel road through the woods its not bad. It is remote and you don't feel like you are part of the event parked way out there. As I remember the radio reception was not very good out there and I have never been able to figure out the text to staging thing.

“Cooter” I just talked to my wife and she did a scan on the Florida DOT and there is no law in Florida against talking on a cell phone in your hand. The Florida House just passed a law against texting while driving but the Senate has not even voted on it. So she says you can talk all you want. Hope this clears it up. Mack
