I just sent you a PM...
Helpful hints about Autofair:
I can tell you where not to stay unless you want to spend big bucks... There are motel/hotels near the speedway, but they tend to be expensive and around big events like this are probably already full. I'm assuming you are coming up 85 from Alabama, and the speedway is right off 85 north of Charlotte in Concord, so go further north to one of the motels off 85 (or find one south of Charlotte off 85).
Get there early in the day! Traffic can be brutal later in the day, especially on Bruton Smith Boulevard, which takes you from 85 to the speedway. There is plenty of parking all around the speedway but you have to pay. The closest is right in front of the main entrance on highway 29.
This is a big event physically. It covers the whole track, the whole infield (orange and blue fields), much of the speedway buidings (the auction and some of the clubs cars) and the green field back of the speedway.
Make sure you take one of the programs when you come in. (The only thing you will see that is free all day...) It has maps, a list of vendors and their locations, and a list of events during Autofair. Unfortunately, all the Camaro vendors and parts are not clustered together. If you are having trouble finding something, ask one of the HNR people. We'll all have on a yellow cap or a hat with a yellow band. If all else fails, find Coker Tire and right across from it is a big yellow and white tent, which is the HNR information booth. Look HERE
for the online maps of Autofair.
If you are planning on buying large parts or several parts, bring a wagon or a cart. There are a few golf carts that will help you take your parts to the exit (but not to parking) and there are only a few of them. There are also carts to give you a ride in the infield, but they have routes they must follow. In other words, PLAN ON WALKING A LOT...
The car corral changes every day and several times a day as vendors sell cars. I usually check it twice a day. The Camaro and other clubs will be there on Saturday and some of them Sunday. The AACA show is on Saturday. (It is a local, HNR show in the fall, but this year is the first year for modified cars, so check it out!)
