Too bad the camping/entry/race pricing is off the charts on the ridiculous scale ?

Its a great idea and I know a ton of my buddies are going from Western PA. The only thing that messes it up for me is that it takes place on a Tuesday. Way too difficult to be out of the office for 3 days for me. With Unadilla rewind, Diamond Dons and MidOhio Vintage days , at least the bulk of the racing is on the weekends. But dammit , I wish I were going.Next year.......

Here’s a fun story. Jeff Stanton is going to ride a bunch of my bikes at Daytona, and I won’t even be there! It’s my oldest daughter’s college spring break and we’ll be in the Keys. Damn!

True, but the High Point Vet Homecoming is much more about all the "Vet" classes on modern bikes, which is very cool, but they only have 3 Vintage classes ,at least they did the couple of years I went. I've missed last years. But the year before my DG Zook 100 won its class in the Vintage bike show,lol.

What are the class/bike requirements? In other words, are pre-74 bikes in a different class than the long travel suspension bikes? How new of a bike can be entered? Disc brakes? Water cooled?

Maybe there is a link and I just missed it.

Here's the sign up page. 28 classes to choose from. And only $80/entry.

Although its not cheap I don't see the pricing to be out of line with other big national races.

I think they actually knocked the price for adding beyond the 1st class to $40 for all classes on Tuesday. So 2 classes would be $120.
