I have a slot in advanced and was just told theres no waitlist and no one to fill the slot. That came from a response to MSR email about canceling. If your buddy is told its full, then me, your buddy, and the MCA registrar need to chat

The cancellation policy was pretty strict on this one. I believe it said "if the event was full and waitlisted" not if your desired run group was full. I don't think they are going to work with anyone until the event is completely sold out for all days. They also are not sharing the list of entrants, so you have no idea how many are registered. I have not run with MCA before depending on how this goes I may not again.

Have to look at MCA track events as a whole event with the Vintage Mustang shows and vendors etc. As a stand alone HPDE they are not really that track focused, a little unorganized, at least how we are used to with the larger clubs. Registration will be an adventure, parking trailers away from the paddock will be required and run sessions will be 5 minutes shorter than advertised because grid in and out is done at a slow pace. Just go with the idea of an experience day(s) vs a track weekend.
 
I too will be doing all 3 days in Advanced group.
I second what Steve says about MCA track event. It's more about the experience and other Mustang fanatics :)

Once you're on the track, how is it? Do I need to move from Advanced to Very Advanced? I figured the big boys like you with hoosiers and aero would be running me over....
