there is something a couple small towns in the area have started and I went to one of them earlier this summer that was a lot of fun. Branson might have trouble finding level straight roads to do this but it would be a blast if they could.

there was the car show, chance to show off their rides, everything from old vintage restored autos to souped up hotrods.

lots of food trucks, craft venders.

then the contests started, blindman where people would drive blindfolded so many feet and see who could stop closest to a white line.

burn out contest

and the highlight of the day, street drag racing, there were guys that showed up with 80 to 100 thousand dollar cars for street drag racing taking on kids in beat up ole pk trucks all for a trophy and a small cash prize. after the race they had a little mini cruise... when the main hwy is 6 blocks long it has to be mini.

Street drag racing might be a big liability issue. Things can and do go wrong.
