Any of you MI guys going? A buddy and I just made plans to go.

Maybe we could have an unofficial meet. Everyone who goes posts up pics from their seats.

Should be a decent show... I've only seen it at the JLC in London and it's waaaaay too small a venue for them!

They had it here in Windsor last year at the WFCU center. Seating is 6500. They raced one truck at a time....
Best place was at the silver dome. I never saw it there but from what I was told that place was perfectly sized.

They still had two at a time in London but there was barely enough room for them to get on it before having to hit the brakes again to stop in time!

Albuquerque, NM is the city they hold it in, but the place they use is too small. I know for a fact there are better places to hold it at.

I saw them once at the Silverdome when i was littler. That place was huge. last i had heard before whatever deal they're trying to push now was that a company is trying to host all kinds of events there geared towards that stuff, like Motorcross, Monster Jam, Quad racing. that kinda stuff.

Right across from the D. Depending on traffic and border guards, anywhere from 5 mins to who knows...

When we were younger we got from great lakes crossing to the tunnel entrance in 20 mins. It took longer getting through then getting to.

I can get to metro and back across within an hour.
