Is it going to be your first time? Well i go through nasa with $50-60 membership plus $200 per event. Then you have to pay a shop for tech inspection which takes my shop 30 minutes so only $50 for me. If it is your first time then i would only worry about gas. Nasa kicks you out if you run out of gas during a session. You should be fine driving it back home. When i go to thunderhill with my older car, i get there a day ahead and stay overnight and drive my 3 hour trip back home right after and go to work the next day. Unless you been tracking before, you wont be over taxing the brakes or the tires because the instructors will make you concentrate on being smooth (slow but consistent). It can get expensive so use each event to help you prepare the car for the next one.
