Been quite a few times and in my opinion it is probably one of the best racing events you will ever go to. The early days at the Race Rock were great, I don't think the Hooters deal is all that but if you're not doing anything else it can't hurt to go. If you go back and look at the results from previous years you will see how many cars show for this race. Get there early, because the line to get in gets long, there are so many people there for the race that everywhere you go you'll see other people with the admission arm band. Bradenton is also having a Drag Radial Championship race the week before Orlando, it will have two 32 car feilds and pays $15,000 to win. Looks like I'll be spending two weeks in florida this fall .

It was on the Thursday night before the race. I don't remember the address but it was closer to the track than Race Rock was. They may not be having it or may be changing the location this year, last year was the first at Hooters. I'm sure there is money changing hands to be the "official" gathering spot and they may be searching around. You should plan on getting into town Wednesday or Thursday morning at the latest, you can come early or stay late, there's plenty to do with Disney and the other Parks.
