    Just invited my NASCAR-fan nephew, if he can make it, I am in.
    Is it $25 per person? Or per car? Do you know? I am assuming you went last year (or perhaps were even more involved :) )

    I believe that it is $25 per individual. Today is actually the first time I've heard of this particular event.

    I emailed the organizers of the event. It is $25 per attendee. You can either call Matt at 540-568-4051 and he can fill out a registration for you or you can go to:

    and fill out the registration form on the webpage.

    I signed up and am looking forward to this.
    Who else is going? I will be picking my nephew up from school (in Fredericksburg) then heading straight for Glen Allen to recharge (electrons for my car, Panera for me and my copilot). Would be cool to meet up with others there and then caravan to the Raceway.

    Hope to see a lot of Teslas there!!

    I'm planning to attend as well. I have a somewhat tight schedule so I might end up bailing at the last minute, but I figure its a decent thing to donate to in any event.

    Registered! If anyone wants their "Reach the Beach" graphics or rally numbers early, let me know and I'll bring them to Richmond.

    I am so psyched! I am coming from Balto that day and will be topping off at Glen Allen. If you stop by and see a pearl white KCKGA5, introduce yourself (unless I already know you, in which case prepare for a hug :) )

    What a great turn out and time at the rally tonight! It was awesome seeing so many Tesla's there (I counted 12). Nice to meet a few of the forum members and check out everyone's rides. I even ran into Brandon from Tesla, who was my delivery specialist when I picked up my car from the Rockville, MD service center back in December; very cool guy.

    The best part was definitely getting out there on the track though, WOW! I thought it would turn out to be a slow drive around the oval with the pace car keeping us from having too much fun, but I was easily getting over 85 in the straights and I overheard someone say they broke 100!

    Good times. :biggrin:

    Agree it was a perfect day, even the weather turned glorious. We had one late Tesla arrival (in hindsight, I am surprised traffic didn't knock more of us out of the picture), so 13 privately owned plus TSLA company car meant 14 Teslas, 1 Volt and 1 Leaf. Can't wait to see Delanman's photos and Andrewket's Gopro footage.
