    Anybody out there going to the Nats at Columbus in August?
    I am planning to go for three days (August 12-13-14) showing my 68 Roadrunner restomod.
    I have attended the show two times before, but never showing. I am registered for Judging, and parking for truck and trailer. I had stayed at the Hampton near the airport before, having the car there nightly. Myself and two other gentlemen took 3 hour shifts in the parking lot watching cars and trailers.
    Any thoughts, advise or other info would be appreciated.
    thanks
    PT in Tennessee

    I went about 6 years ago. Never again, it's just too hot for me.

      Yeah it is always very hot when that show is going on. Last time I was there, 3 or 4 years ago, I was surprised at how much smaller the show was compared to previous years. The 1/4 mile races going on all day are very neat however.

        Good chance I'll be there with my Charger. Typically it's hot but the last time I was there it was beautiful, no way of knowing. That was 2 years ago, show still seemed pretty big to me? The drag racing is definitely a huge plus, I don't get bored so easily with it going on.

        Thoughts... bring a canopy and a large cooler with drinks and food because the food and drinks there are ridiculously expensive and the sun can be relentless. As far as hotels go I'd look for one east of the track if possible, get farther away from Columbus.

          It's August in Ohio.....hot and humid. The bathrooms are crappy. Overpriced crappy food at the track so eat before you get there or pack a cooler with food. Still a great show. Lots of sweet Mopars, and deals can be found in the swap meet.

            Yep, I'll be there again this year. With the exception of last years show cancellation, this will be 21 consecutive years going for me.
