Have same hospitality room as previous, mention Arrowhead 135 and room rates at Fortune somewhere in $60-$70 range. Showers/sauna open all night for us. Rooms are very nice here, get one to crash after you finish. Fortune Bay has been a great host and friend of race so rather than pull zombie drive home, why not get a room. You can gamble and smoke and stuff here too!
Good restaurant and we will have some minor post-race hangout food/drinks also.
