For those who've been, you know why we do this one. For those who haven't, come find out. Arkansas has some of the best twisties I've driven. We hit the Ozarks before the leaves turn so we have a lot of miles of great roads with little traffic.
WHEN: Thursday-Sunday, October 15-18
WHERE: Russellville, Arkansas
HOTEL OPTIONS: Lot of hotels close by if you have points/discounts to use. All within walking distance of Ruby Tuesday. Cheers
