Staying in Palm Coast, left around 11:30 and had no issues at all with parking in lot 7. We followed to speedway directions which take you off 95 South early and encountered no traffic. The bus ride to the track is fun, looked like fire roads including unpaved with state troopers blocking traffic as we crossed every main road.
Quite a line for the bus going back but well organized and multiple buses loading with another pulling in as soon as one left. Maybe a 25 minute wait in line and moderate traffic headed north. We took 40 east and drove up A1A instead of following the crowd up 1 north.
I didn't realize track rules changed, they now allow larger coolers including the ones with wheels and telescoping handles and non-clear backpacks. These rules are in the one place I didn't look, the tickets!
We were in Keech J row 44 and I thought the seats were great, we have almost the same seats for Sunday. We could see the entire track but were also directly in front of the big screen. Great view of the pit exit and clear view of the start finish line.
We will leave much earlier for Sundays race and use the same route and parking. Our first race and we had a fun time, the crowd was as much fun as the race.
