Yeah it sucks but it's part of this game. You win some you loose some. This time I lost. It was good seeing you also. It's been a long time. I'll be around more this year. Even though I didn't get to race, it was nice being back at a big national.

Great weekend of racing at Music City! Had a great time watching Jeff Upshaw ride (amazing skill). My 8yr old son is a big Upshaw fan. Got a pic with them together and he signed his jersey. "Dad, Upshaw asked me what class I raced, and told me good luck and do my best." Happy kid.
Danny C. and Weston Pope were both great with the kids during the clinic. Funny when the kids swarmed the Dan's tent after the clinic. Noticed a lot of the pros being cool with the kids this weekend. Just one more great thing about BMX!
Hope to see some video posts later if you have them. I know many of us older guys are still in recovery mode today. Hope everyone had fun and safe trips home. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drinks.gif)

$25 for parking was way too much...



I agree. And $50 for campers was way too much also.

That may have something to do with the park. I have no idea on that. However, your post prompted me to look at the KOA campgrounds right up the road from the track to check their prices. For just tent camping and no hook ups it was:

Estimated Total For Your Stay*
US$98.30

At that price, it is worth getting a hotel.

Anyway, aside from the parking fee (I paid it is as well, as did my girlfriend and friends who drove seperately to watch for the weekend), I think it was a great event.

However, I have have seen worse parking and camping views for just about the same price. Not sure where you camped, but this was a pretty good place.

View from my truck, loading up the rig Saturday after the race.

That's actually very, very reasonable for a weekend camping pass.

That's the standard rate for a weekend parking pass...

You could always park outside the venue and use your chevrolegs

I had to pay $30 to park one day for a concert and $50 to park one day for a college football game....$25 for the whole weekend is pretty cheap.

Don't get me wrong, I like free parking. But, I don't have a problem with paying $8.33/day for parking. Considering you are at the track for at least 9+ hours. Wonder how much that would cost at a parking deck?
