Oh right...I'm driving over the GrapeVine in winter. Nope.

Knotts figures it their off season so let the cars in. Only SoCal folks will show up now.

Northern California does. The roads can be ugly up here in January. It is an idiotic move by the FFF folks to have it in January. It will severely limit the attendance from outside of So Cal.

Get out and see more of this state, you have been in the south too long!

Strange that they went back. Maybe Knott's made them a deal they couldn't resist.

You could always take the 101 instead of the grapevine. Just saying....

They said attendance was down last year and hey couldn't afford to go back to Anaheim Stadium. I am guessing the Jan date was imposed by Knotts to get away from their prime season.

What I was told was there are other events in April and none of the dates we're available.

In Utah there's liable to be snow. Won't be able to get the Shelby out.

Heck even in April it was dicey driving over the GrapeVine. We had snow once. Now a week after Christmas for FFF...nope

Its odd but there are seasons in California. I ride my motorcycle all over the west yet I am trapped until I depend on no snow because we are surrounded by mountains. Rain I can deal with but a 52 yo car in the snow...and then LALALand traffic...not worth it.

They moved it back to Knotts due to a smaller crowd this year at Angels Stadium. Wait until they see how small the crowd is in January. I would think many of the sponsors/vendors will take a pause before they decide to attend next year. To make matters worse, the group that run their Facebook page act like it’s no big deal and are rude to folks that question this move. I would say we have seen our last FFF.

I'm going even if I go with the Shelby crowd.

I like the venue but I may have to leave my car at home because of the snow and ice. I need 42+ degrees for the tires.
