    If anyone hasn’t booked their hotel for the race yet, I’ve got a Groupon I bought that is $200 for 2 nights in a deluxe queen/king room. Regular price of $400 for both nights. If someone wants to buy the voucher from me & save some money, I can be reached by email at I’d love to come but had to bail to hit a bullarama instead. Good luck to everyone at the race!
