NHRA Nationals in July 19-22nd

Hi, my husband and i are traveling to the US in July and will be going to the drags in Denver. i am trying to find out the best transport to get from the city to the race track, or if there are any good hotels near the track? Also how long would it take to get to the nationals from a hotel in the city? Any information in regard to the racing weekend would be appreciated.

To my knowledge, the only way to get to the drag strip is to drive there yourselves...or I guess there are some car services but that would be pretty pricey. It is an easy drive and there's been plenty of parking when we've attended.

You could stay downtown if you prefer, but you'll be closer and likely find better rates if you stay at one of the hotels in the West Denver/Golden/Lakewood area. Also, the downtown hotels generally charge for parking and the suburban hotels generally have free parking. There's a good list on the Bandimere Speedway website:

http://www.bandimere.com/services/hotels.php I don't see the Sheraton Denver West on that list, though, and that is the only hotel in that area I've stayed. It was very clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced.

The Hampton Inn Denver West would be closest, I believe, and the Hampton Inn Denver Southwest/Lakewood would be next. There are also some hotels to the south along 470 (not a toll road in this area, don't worry) that would be a very easy drive to the strip...about 10 minutes... Holiday Inn Express and Hampton/Littleton. Downtown would be about 20-30 minutes, I'm guessing, so not really much further...just more traffic and finding a place to park.

Check www.denver.org for specials. Many of the Denver hotels (and restaurants, activities, etc.) will list their specials there.

It will probably be very hot, so I'd advise taking one of those little battery powered fans attached to a spray bottle you fill with water. (Or at least take a spray bottle of water...it really helps!)
