I-75 to exit 48, then west 2 miles
then north 1.2 miles on US-41
then right 1.3 miles on Old US-41
then right on Burts Rd.

*** Extra Notes ***
Call track if you are interested in spectator side reserved grandstand seating.
I haven't received final word on pit pass pricing but talked to track today (Dec 18th) and expected price is to be $30 each night. Will have listed here as soon as I get a confirmed price for pit passes.

Track has said that the Hoosier rep will be at track selling Hoosier tires.
Jimmy Smith Racing Tires will be there selling the American Racer tires.

Tire rule update------ We were asked if H series hoosiers were ok to run. We contacted the track and they said it would be fine to run them since they are harder than the D and A already allowed. You might want one at least on right rear for the 100 lap race on Tuesday.

There will be no practice days available at track for the modifieds. East Bay has a full speedweeks schedule with many nights and many classes of cars so there plate is full.
Sprints, D.I.R.T. Modifieds, our modifieds, a couple dirt late model sanctions, etc. will make a great couple weeks of racing at East Bay.
