Others trickle in throughout the week. The earlier you get there the more pre-runs you can go on , although I have not yet been able to take advantage of that myself.

My advice to you as a first timer to CM (like I was last year), is to arrive by Wednesday afternoon at the latest. This allows you time to set up camp (if you are camping at Slickrock), relax a little, get the tech inspection completed, get checked in at registration, kibitz with folks, attend the driver's meeting, and generally soak in the atmosphere. Also allows you time to get ready for the first run the next day.

Thursday morning will be a mad scramble in the morning trying to cram late arrivals through tech inspection and registration so it is nice to be able to sit back and relax a little and not add to the stress .
