Huntington is a beautiful riverport city of about 45,000 people located in southwestern West Virginia near where the state meets Kentucky and Ohio. The university is about a 10 minute drive from Interstate 64. The airport (HTS) is only 15 minutes away and if you need additional flights then you can try Charleston, WV (CRW) which is only an hour away.
There are several hotels within 5 minutes of the race site. We will try to get information on those as a quick link sometime in the future.
