If you are 100% certain you are going to attend the Mopars at the Strip event which is being held April 1-3 in Las Vegas, Nevada at LVMS please check in with this thread.

Post up your name, city/state, and what hotel you have registered at. If possible please add some sort of contact information (e-mail address, phone, etc.) so people can get ahold of you in order to organize meetings, after-event partying, convoys to/from the event, etc.

If you aren't comfortable leaving personal information on the board please communicate via PM's.

I'm 99.9999% sure I'll be there. Got the time off work, mailed in entry form and $50 for the car show already, and got an appointment to have the Stomper Super detailed head to toe. I just hope I can talk the wife into the new Ghost Flame paint job between now and then.................

..........Oh ya and my wife just found out yesterday that she won't be able to attend due to a new job, OH DARN, man what
will I ever do :woot:

- I'm leaving Olympia around 3AM Wednesday morning.
- I figure I can make it to atleast Sacramento by 4 or 5 PM traveling straight down I-5.
- Spending the night in Sacramento somewhere.
- Leaving Sacramento around 3AM Thursday should be able to make it to Vegas by 3 or 4PM I think.
- I'll be coming into Vegas Via I-15.
- Also staying at the Super 8 by Nellis, 30 Mar - 2 April.

Is this a realistic timeline, input from some of you Cali drivers would be nice :biggthump

If anyone want to link up somewhere on I-15, or anywhere along the way like Sacramento or south of there give me a call or email me.

I'll be driving down from Bremerton myself. I'm not sure if I will have another rig with me yet or not, if I do, he will be towing his truck. I plan on leaving here wed night sometime and I will also be getting to LV on thursday night. You know its a faster route for you to go through Reno don't you??

well, just tried to call ya but for some reason cant get through. if ya do come that way, use RT 99 out of Sac to Bakersfield then use the 58, that will take you to Barstow. takes me ~ 8 or so hours to get to LV from SD, so im usually in Barstow noon-ish. Check YAHOO maps for a time line and gage off if that. use my celly number above for reference. :wave:

Change of plan after talking to John, thanks :biggthump Now taking 99 into Bakersfield. I never actually planned on going I-5 to I-15, I just wasn't sure where the cut off was to cutout going thru the LA area.

Oh ya my home phone is on the sh!tz right now, not sure why but heres my cell # 360-790-8925

Would it be fast to stay on 5 until Hwy 46 or get on 99 around Stockton?

FYI: The event organizers sent me a bunch of flyers with registration forms. If for some reason you don't want to register over the internet or can't print out the form let me know and I'll find a way to send you one before the event.

I've never received an official confirmation in the past. If you're concerned that your registration didn't go through I'm sure you can e-mail or call them at the contact info at www.moparsatthestrip.com to confirm everything is ok. If you paid via PayPal or credit card you could probably print out a snapshot of your payment on your computer and bring that along just in case there's any issues at the gate - I've never had any problems in the past.

If you're only coming to the event for one day then you can just buy a spectator pass when you get to the track. If you think you will be there for at least two out of the three days then you should probably go ahead and put your Durango in the car show - that way you get to park inside the event next to the other Dakotas/Durangos in the car show instead of having to walk all the way from the parking lots.

I was just wondering cause of reason #5. I was wondering if they were going to send out gate passes or something :biggthump thanks for the info though.

Quote from the FAQ's:

Q) Why should I pre-register?

A) There are lots of great reasons. 1 st , if you are a racer, you can drop your trailers at the strip on Thursday. 2 nd there will be special award this year for one luck pre-entered participant. 3 rd It help us to better plan for the event.( Can you imagine your wife's expression when you invite some of your friends over for barbecue, does she is prepared for a few guests, or 80 ! 4 th It helps us prepare to better serve you. 5th You will have all of your credentials and can make a smooth entry into the event.
