    Do most people do both sessions? I noticed only three people signed up for PM. Are some of the people listed in AM session doing both AM and PM sessions and just show up in AM on the roster?

    About half of the attendees run both AM & PM. The PM session always is the last to fill up. People prefer to come out, get their runs, then have the rest of the day. People who sign up for all day should show up as AM and PM NC on the attendance list.

    Hey guys, I'm having trouble registering. I can't select my number for the AM session, there's no drop box. Just says "N/A." For the PM session, 203 is reserved in my profile. I have no option to select another number. But when I submit the form, it gives me the error: "The number 03 is not available because it is already used or reserved for part or all of this event. We cannot always tell in advance if your selection is valid until we have a class and/or group. Please make another selection from the filtered list."

    I'd like to choose 03 again this season if possible. However, I don't even have a choice to choose otherwise in the registration form.

    I've contacted MSReg to try and get the issue resolved. Not sure what's going on.

    Will do.

    So this will be my first autox, and I signed up for the PM session tomorrow - as the AM was all sold out. I've read through all the documentation here on the website, and was wondering what to expect as a beginner.

    Should I mention that I am a beginner to the registrar upon arrival? Are instructor ride-alongs permitted on autox days (if anyone is available in the PM)?

    I'll be swapping to my old stock rims for the event - and I'm getting pretty excited to see what the old 325 can do
