I will be in LA on during the week leading up to the meet and am trying to figure out if I can/should attend. How long does the racing last during the days on Saturday and Sunday? I'm assuming it's like b'ville where it starts at sun up and goes until 7 or 8ish. Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this. Also, if there are any shops I should visit during my visit, Please let me know.

Thanks,

Dan

Maybe more like 1 or 2ishfor the end. Wind comes up. Course gets dug up. Racing ends early.

They run for 8 hours or they have to pay the BLM overtime, Normal start time is 7:30ish. They run tell 8 hours is up or the wind gets to bad.

If it's a Bonneville or eastern pavement car you will find out about El Mirage dust in about 200 yds. You will have a start number that will be at the end of the first day if all goes well. If not early on day #2. closest motels are about 20-25 miles away. Bring your own fuel. Sleeping on the lake bed is OK but cold in Novemder. With that said come out and have a good time....
