As far as I am concerned, the traffic issues on race day were caused by morons unfamiliar with how the traffic was being directed and where they were able to park. Friday and Saturday, there was a brief wait to get into Parking Lot F, but Sunday took us about 1.5 hrs from the time we hit traffic until we were parked. People without parking permits kept having to turn around because they were not allowed in.
Other then that, I did not have a single issue all weekend. Beer and swag lines were very long, but that is to be expected during certain times at any event of this magnitude.
Once I found a beer stand that turned a blind eye to the supposed 'two drink per person limit', we were golden. The private suites were top notch as well.
