So I just found out registration for the 6hrs of Warrior Creek opened at 8am not 9am. Looks like I missed the boat again!

The warrior creek site actually posted that registration opens Nov. 3rd so it looks like more than one person screwed up!

It’s interesting that the first post on the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek website clearly states that registration opens on Nov. 2nd. Registration did in fact open at 9am not 8am. It promptly closed at 9:10 AM.

You would have needed a fast boat to get in.
