I don't know of anyone going to the race but a couple of us are doing Hooters on Saturday night for the UFC PPV. It is on the NE side of town. Let me know if you are interested and I will get you directions. Oh, and Friday night is Midnight Madness at the drag strip. A couple of us will be there as well.
It is O'Reilly Raceway Park now. Used to IRP. It is out by IMS. It is also where they run the big NHRA event. The track is usually slick for street tire nights but it is still a good time. I think I might be skipping it now though to go pick up my downpipe.
If I make it, I will definately stop and say hi. Here is the website. Directions are under "Fan Guide". It is very easy to find though. It is off the same exit as the big track but you turn right at your first light. Then you go through a little town and the track is on the left. You can't miss it.
