I was just able to get a room the night of the 10th and 11th but not the 12th at the host hotel so had to get one at the Hampton Inn which is about 1 mile away for the Friday night.

Would be glad to help but see quote below from said email;

“THIS INFORMATION IS FOR MEMBERS ONLY! It will be released to the public next weekend.”

If you are a SAAC member in good standing you could contact Jay to see why you didn’t receive it.

Made my reservations with the Hampton Inn just down the road from the host hotel. In prior SAAC gatherings has there been secured trailer parking at the track?

Should be, as the track is secured by gate at night

^^^ "nothing for the 12th" = Exactly what the Double-Tree told me as well.
The lady on the phone was very nice, but said no rooms (within or not of the "block") for Friday.

Breakfast included at the Hampton tho  :)

I called fairly early yesterday and was told there were no rooms left with 2 beds.  They offered an alternate room with 2 beds for $169/night.  Seemed like a bait & switch.

Are we sold out? Just tried and says no

The hotel only has like 20 rooms.

Call them. The online reservation thing-a-ma-jig electronic gizmo wasn't working.

The e-blast and the re-blast said best to use online booking and included a link. I tried this the evening it went live, and the link was dead both times I tried.

I had made my reservations yesterday but could not get Friday night so I switched to Hampton Inn for Friday night.  But like SAcobra427 I just did the online reservation from the link in the email and it booked me thru Sunday with no problem.  I specifically asked yesterday if there were any rooms even at a higher rate and they said the hotel was all booked up.

Yes Steve I am currently booked at the host hotel Wednesday thru Sunday.  Road trip sounds awesome!  Are you staying thru Sunday?

We are actually talking about staying through Monday for the Walnut Street Invitational Car Show if I can snag and invite . We are then talking about heading back the next Saturday for the Race in the Park
We went to the Walnut Street Show last year and it was awesome with great people
