We are all grateful for the effort put forth by the few dedicated individuals that make this happen each year. Food aside, many of the issues boils down to money. If we are going to promote these cars and buy and sell parts we don't need to be charged 500.00 to sell parts, I don't know what the FEE is for food vendors, but I can guess it is not worth their while. After paying for food , gas, hotel, airfare, lawn chairs, race tires, race gas, entry fees, parking fees, all most want is to have some normal amenities when we get there. From my own experiences all I want is when I ask where do we park that someone knows where that is. NO MUD or GRAVEL on the track or anywhere near the cars to be shown. Food, drink, toilets, lighting, parking, these are all items that our local shows that have 50 cars might have, let alone a national convention. Just common sense nothing out of the ordinary. Not trying to be a stick in the mud, just trying to make things better, where more people will show up if some things get fixed . Most here are not 20 somethings anymore, and tolerance for simple things is different than decades ago.

I am very thankful for the effort people put into organizing and running the event. I have only been to the last two. Really enjoyed both. Organizers helped me with any questions I had. I do not plan on missing any more events. Missed way too many. I drive in so I bring food and drinks with me. If anyone has the time they may contact a food truck or two. To see if they would be interested in setting up at the event.

I dont know the specifics of this track but if its like every other track,  nothing comes in the door commercially without them getting a piece of the pie.  If they have brick and mortar food vendors they wont want mobile food trucks.  I will talk to SAAC  about the food
