I plan to drive 2017 H0098 from Detroit to Atlanta leaving Thursday October 10, 5:00 am. Arrive at Hotel Avalon Alpharetta around 5-6 pm.
I will drive back on Sunday Oct 13...day after the Race.
Is anyone else planning a road trip with a similar route?
Or a longer /shorter route ?

I haven't picked times but I'll be taking my trailer. Your welcome to put luggage or anything in the trailer.

Andy,

Hey, it went so flawlessly last year why not breeze down to Atlanta again for round two. Perhaps Terry Cord can make the trip with you in his Supercharged H-D F-150 that also experienced smooth sailing to Atlanta last year! You can flat bed together!!!

Humor aside, I look forward to seeing you in Georga.

Andy has functioning tail lights for this trip :).

I will be driving too. Just have to decide if I will trailer it. I have an opportunity to pick up a bunch of GT4 Michelin's scrubs after the race and may bring my trailer to take them back with me.

I hope Terry has preshipped a spare fuel tank and fuel pumps just in case.
