Here is the latest plan, subject to change at any time. I made some changes in the last day or two to reflect a different route around Chicago so I can drive at Autobahn.

Connecticut and the Atlantic to San Diego and the Pacific via Tail of the Dragon and Route 66, two icons of the American Road..plus two racetracks, Watkins Glen and Autobahn Country Club. ~4500 miles.

The quick rundown-June 5th Thursday. Fly into White Plains NY. Pick up car from Pat Salerno in New Milford. Stay with Pat.

June 6th Friday. Leave in morning for Watkins Glen. 260 miles and 5 hours. Speed WC TC #2 at 2:30 and GT at 6:40pm. Stay at Watkins Glen.

June 7th Saturday. Watkins Glen. 8:00am qualifying TC. 9:55am qualifying GT. Rolex 6 Hours at The Glen. Dinner meet @ Seneca Lodge. Stay at Watkins Glen.

June 8th Sunday. Leave in morning. Breakfast meeting with LOONYs 8 hours to Detroit. Leave by 8:00am. Arrive by 4:00pm in the afternoon. Dinner at Buddy’s with family. Stay in Detroit.

June 9th Monday. Detroit. Visit relatives. Dinner at Hogan’s with LT people Stay in Detroit.

June 10th Tuesday. Fly out of Detroit Metro to San Diego. Northwest 10:06am.

June 14th Saturday. Fly back to Detroit Metro. Northwest arrives 4:02pm. Pick up car. Drive to Chicago and stop there. Arrive ~10:30pm. Anyone up for a late meet/drinks?

June 15th Sunday. Start Route 66 to Joliet. Drive at Autobahn Country Club. Leave Joliet via Route 66 to Bloomington and then leave Route 66 to drive to Deals Gap. Check in at lodge by 11:00pm. I hope.

June 16th Monday. Tail of the Dragon. Woot.

June 17th Tuesday. Leave Deals Gap, drive to Cincinnati and visit 1GRacing/Rossion. Leave and drive to Indianapolis IN. Dinner at St Elmos. Stop at Champaign IL.

June 18th Wednesday. Champaign IL to Bloomington to pick up Route 66. Head to Springfield MO or Lebanon MO. Consider possible detour to Tuscumbia MO, Lake of the Ozarks.

June 19th Thursday. Leave Springfield/Lebanon MO to Oklahoma City OK and then to Amarillo TX or Tucumcari NM.

June 20th Friday. Amarillo TX or Tucumcari NM to Flagstaff AZ or Kingman AZ
