My goal when heading north on the 5 through LA is about the same to be climbing the grapevine by 6am Friday morning.
Except we start 3 hours south in San Diego and keep going till we get to Laguna Seca at noon.

I know another racer with a short track commute.
He lives in Carmel Valley his commute to Laguna Seca is just 68 turns over Laureles Grade with no freeway.

The reality of race weekends for most of us is you arrive Friday a day early to pass tech and set up your pit.
Stay in a local hotel for 2 nights, race for 2 days and tow home Sunday night getting home around 11pm.

The drive to the track is a relief in a sense.
I go totally prepared.
You know from the pick up truck, trailer and race car prepped and detailed and also everything at home from cutting the lawn to whatever completed.
Just helps clear my mind for a weekend away at the track.
