I'm thinking that this may be my spring break trip For 2013. Early thoughts would be to ride to Austin before the weekend then spend a couple days after the race riding the Hill Country before a ramble back home through Arkansas.

I'm prolly just gonna get a GA ticket since I've never seen the track layout and bounce around to see what's what. I've been to Austin once before for a weekend trip with Mrs. Easy but we didn't venture too far from the bars downtown. Would a guy be best off to stay downtown and shuttle it to the track or are there hotels closer to the track and park and rides that would make for a shorter trip?

That no outside food/drink policy is pretty harsh, WTF?

Any local advice is certainly appreciated
