Haha ya it was a blast. I got married in June of this year and the tickets were a wedding gift to me from my wife (ya I know I pick the right one). If it hadn't been for that I probably wouldn't have gotten to go either. We also lucked out and found some friends of friends to stay with in Austin. I would highly suggest going if you can the track is really great, lots of good passing.Kelson, I say this in the most sincere way possible:
That is all. Just kidding man, I am a little envious for sure. Was planning on going from the first I heard about it even happening, but when it came time to planning the financials of it all, it would have cost my girlfriend and myself somewhere around $2500 including air travel, car rental, hotel, tickets, misc, etc... Just wasn't really going to be in a good financial position to go this year.
Next year, I suppose it might be more feasible, but it is still a 2500 mile round trip...
