    Based on what Mr New York gets paid for his time invested to organize an event that we all can enjoy by just showing up, there should be ZERO backlash on who he selected as a sponsor, regardless. I've seen companies I don't like at events either but I simply don't go near them.

    Not letting him use cars and coffee for a venue to rip of new unsuspecting groups of people.

    We have a facebook racing group where every month someone new pops up who got screwed over by JnJ because either they didn't know better or decided not to listen and give it a go to save a couple bucks.

    Either way, I will be there enjoying the first event of the season.

    If you want to "blame" Mr. New York for not doing his research, then you should also be "blaming" those that still go to him and need "saving" if the information is so readily available.

    Would NYSpeed run a banner ad for J&J if he offered to be an advertiser?

    I don't think we ever defined trailer parking.

    For context, he was the only vendor we allowed to pay 50% up front and the remaining 50% after 6 months. We never did get the other half.

    Thank you to those who called/texted/emailed/messaged me regarding their concerns. I've made the decision to revoke sponsorship from J&J. Towne BMW will fill the sponsorship spot and will be joining us Sunday. Looking forward to seeing everyone for a hopefully calm season opener.

    I would have loved to hear how that revoke convo went with JnJ. Hoping to make one this year on a trip back!

    Towne BMW sounds way better, especially if you're looking to attract a higher end crowd.

    @Mr. New York along the lines of what @Paul B asked, did you ever decide on a plan to section off groups of cars?

    I think he's leaning towards the drift missiles that I saw often at the OP venue with missing bumpers and covered in obscene stickers. Your junk should be just fine.

    Not for the first event, I have a feeling it will be very big so I'm going to keep parking as it has been to make it easier. Exotics up front, everything else is open. C&C events get their character from showing up and not knowing what you will park next to. The more I thought about arranging rows of cars by brand, etc the more it felt like a regular car show.

    Also, the organized parking in my mind was to eliminate some of the not quite as quality cars. This year, I'm just going to turn them away at the gate and call it a day, I can't be worried about hurting feelings because I will never be able to make everyone happy.

    You should have have kept the Cabby. It's cooler but less welcome than the Miata.
