I'll be there (Redondo Beach). Anyone else?

Anyone have an idea what kind of crowds are expected?

I understand there is a 20 mile boardwalk that passes through RB. How far south does it go? How far north?

Looks like the weather is beginning to lean a little negative for Sunday.

This was a great week. Thanks Amgen for putting this together. I'm sure europeans don't mind coming here to nice, sunshine, and warm racing conditions. Like Bobby Julich said, it's nice not to be stuck in small hotel rooms, over cooked pasta, and cold weather. That's why we live in California!
