Only get a stub if you buy at the gate. The age of "print your own". But I guess it beats the days of the $5 shipping charge.

I've considered it, but Road America is such a spectator-friendly track that it's kinda cheesy NOT to be sitting in the stands with the rest of the fans. There are shaded spots if you are worried about baking in the mid-day sun.

Ford, Mazda, Lexus & Porsche all have vip tents for car owners. All you need to do is register at each tent. There are so many great vantage points its nice to move around the track as the race progresses.

I will be there all weekend staying at the Corvette Cabin in the woods, 1 mile from Corvette corner. I don't need one of those stinking tickets.
