Default All y'all down south...and everybody else

So I'm trying to figure out exactly what my plans are this winter. My first option is school, I finished applying today and if I get in, it starts in January.

If I don't get in, I gotta get some other options, cause I'm gonna go bonkers here. So here'* my question. Do car/truck/race/all kinds of other go fast vehicle shows/exhibitions go year round down in warmer weather? I'm thinking about buying a portable dyno and hitting the road. I've found some anywhere from 27-60k. I don't really have more specifics than that, and it'* probably the wrong time of year to be starting up something like that, but if it'* possible, I think there'* a possibility for some money and have some fun with some fellow hp addicts.

I agree Andrew. There'* also Lakeland and a couple others nearby, I just didn't have the time to look up all their links and had these two handy.

Bottom line is that there are many local and larger strips and tracks throughout the southeast that operate year around. I can't speak for south central and southwest, but would imagine it'* similarly so.
