Ya know that you can still whistle the Battle Hymn of the Republic even when south of the Mason Dixon? Something to do with the results of a war, or something, I heardSouth of the Mason Dixon line again?
I'm sure there are a variety of factors that are considered when choosing venues and routes, but yeah, seems like they could move it around a little more. The facility and surrounding area have to be able to handle 4,000 plus participants, and spectators on top of that. Space for activities like vendors, drag racing, or autocross narrow the choices more. Maybe demographics of past participants, magazine and digital subscribers??? I maybe shouldn't say it, but possibly the political climate of some states isn't exactly welcoming to 4-5,000 gas guzzling climate change/global warming machines cruising through only for entertainment. Crime rates? Wolverines? People in the South talk slowly enough that everyone can understand them? HOT ROD staff throwing darts at a map? Hell I don't know.I hate how the last few years have been so far south. 2018, 2019, 2022, and now 2023 have all been deep in the south and have been crazy hot trips (2019 was actually cold and rainy though). I don't understand why they've been picking the hottest most humid part of the country near the peak of the summer for a lot of old hot rods to cruise to.
Nevertheless I'm planning on going this year again for the full trip since it's not too far from me. Should be in my g-body again unless I pick up another project between now and then haha
