    Wear a brimmed hat (not a baseball cap) so that it shields your ears and face. Also, if the hat doesn't have a rear flap find something else that will protect the back of your neck, and don't forget about every piece of flesh that is uncovered. Enjoy.

    Cover up... sunburns from the salt are no joke.

    Camp on the salt if you can, it is amazing at night.

    Wash whatever you drive very well, that salt gets everywhere.

    If the BUB is like regular speed week, spend some time at different areas. Spend time in the pits, spend time at the starting line.

    Bring lots of water and drink it.

    Went today. Definitely glad I went. 72 degrees on the salt, 98 when I hit the asphalt. Lots of water and sunscreen. An S1000RR went over 220.
