the Hampton Inn host hotel already shows booked for those dates? Do I need to call and mention I'm with the invasion? Or are they really already full?

Craig, I might use Marriott points and drive 20 miles back towards Austin. Haven't decided yet.

I used my Marriott points to book near the airport.

If you signed up for the Hot Laps, I notice the instructions say we need car number decals: "All cars that drive on track need to have identifying numbers on each side. The numbers should be 10 to 12 inches tall. You can use blue painters tape, or have vinyl numbers cut prior to the event."

Since I own my Big Bend Open Road Race number for lifetime, been thinking about having some made...... anyone have suggestions?
