Shuttle Service for Race Day (Limited Availability)
For those of you who will not have a ground support team, shuttle service is available. Dave Meyer, a professional bus driver, is returning with his team to drive cars from the race start location down to your takeout of choice (25, 50, or 100-mile takeouts).
How It Works
Saturday — Meet Dave at race registration to work out a plan for keys (you have two sets and he leaves extra in your car or he hides your key).
Sunday — Drive your vehicle to the race start. Dave and his team will deliver it to your takeout point.
Prices for this handy service are $35 for 25-mile takeout, $70 for 50-mile takeout, and $100 for 100-mile take out.
Payment is due at registration on Saturday. CASH ONLY.
