You should be fine.... the sand makes the bikes wander and wiggle around at high speed and that is a bit disconcerting at first. The deepest sand tends to be in tight corners,,,, pick a line, lean back and stay on the gas.

You could do it that way, it will cost more in the way of late registration fees. Sign up ahead of time to get most of the paperwork done and then pay when you get there.
