I was the drive-n-fly guy
Drove to Vegas the Thurs before the ride, parked at the Orleans, walked through the casino to the lobby, hailed a cab, flew to Phoenix for business that weekend, either flew back to LA or did a one-way car rental.
Did this twice and didn't ask permission, etc either time, no problems.
in Vegas on the 23rd.
Good opportunity to drive two trucks to Vegas, watch the race, leave a truck there and drive back to LA.
This year I plan to ride back on Sunday.
