2017 Trans Am Nationals

August 25-27. If you haven't been there before, you would love it. If you have been there, I don't need to say anymore. Always a great time!

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

Hotel booked and registration sent in. Been attending since 2007 and only missed two years in that time. Great event.

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

I'm probably not going to make it this year.

Sure will miss seeing Bill's sweet GTA, Kevin, Mike and his son.

Enjoy!

After missing last year, I was really looking forward to it.

Plus, Bill owes me a cold one. Haha! .

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

Never heard of it, but it looks really cool. I definitely can't go, but it'd be great if someone could record a video or take some photos of the event.

Your welcome. The drone footage doesn't do either site justice. When they did that at Tipp City, not everyone was there yet. There were two more blocks filled and the side streets as well. At the show site, the drone didn't get the other two parking lots that had classes in them. Still gives you an idea of how special and unique this event is.

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

Sure is. Don't know WHERE the time goes. Well, I do know, but I can't seem to stop it!

Still working on a plan to get us there. Don't give up on me yet.

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

While there are certainly no rules, is it safe to assume that most folks try to arrive Thursday night, to be ready for events on Thursday?

How is security there? You all feel safe leaving the cars, trucks, trailers alone there? My car isn't super nice, but that doesn't mean I don't worry! LOL

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

A lot of folks get there Friday, probably a lot head out after work and come to the show. But Thursday there are still plenty of guys there too.
As far as security, the show has security roaming about at night every night on golf carts and such. I think most owners think the same way... my baby. Well the show organizers feel the same way, so security is part of the show. You can sleep well at night in the hotel room without having to wake every hour stressed.
