I went on Sunday, got there at 9 when the doors opened, spent the day checking all the events out, then headed to the Arena to watch the Motorcross Finals which lasted until 5:30.
We've gone about the last 5 years and I definately have noticed that the building which houses the race car show portion has way more product stands that it does race cars. That area was packed on Sunday while we were walking around, which the bikini contest was going on when we were in that area, which the used to have that in the tuner car section where they had a ton more room.
I too was shocked at the left over space at the car show/ tuner war area, but after talking to some people that actually were from Trailways, sounds like there were tons more cars that were actually entered, however the weather kept them away. With that being said, can't say I blame them, I wouldn't be transporting in that weather unless I absolutely had too.
One new addition that we went to check out, which I thought was pretty awesome, they had a mountain bike show. Those guys were amazing!!
Motorcross track was much tamer than last year and the starting line was only half as wide, which kind of sucked for some of the guys because they were stacked at the start and from what I seen with the 4 wheelers, if you weren't starting in the front row, you didn't have much of a chance.
But all in all, I still look forward to it, I only go on Sundays and make sure I get there early enough that I can get a parking spot and not have to worry about parking elsewhere and getting on a shuttle bus.
It's better to keep your mouth shut and have people think your an idiot, than to open it and erase all doubt.
