As you can see, there are plenty of events to keep your spring 2017 busy—so start planning now, including your car or van rental. If you’re a visitor from out of town, you’ll need a good rental car or van to make getting around the city easier during your stay. If you’re local and attending with friends or lots of family members, renting a van is a good idea in order to save on gas, stick together, and ensure that no one will be driving while under the influence after having a great time at something like Dale Earnhardt Day!
