Default How far?

I have a question. I live in ohio and I am re-doing a 32 Altered. It is going to be done in a month. How far south would I have to go to run it?

What tracks are open in winter down there. I may take a week off and have some fun.

Thanks Goomba.

The Tenn-tucks start in March in Bowling Green, KY. That is $200 per race for $10,000 to win I believe. I know that tracks in Virginia and North Carolina are racing. Places like Farmington, Summerduck, VMP and Richmond Dragway.

Thanks Shawn, I am looking for some T&T time. Not ready for something big right out of the gate. I just don't think I can wait till April.

Going south would be a great start. Most tracks are 1/8 mile down there. The new car is going to be a lot different then the door car. Shaking down 1/8 mile may be the best situation.

Fulton dragway in north Ms runs every Sunday afternoon if the temps are 50 degrees or above.
20 miles south of Tupelo Ms on I-78

Track # 662-862-2232

It's closer than Mobile Ala by a few hundred miles but still , that's a pretty long haul for a T&T session....
