We did a Saturday night dirt race track in North Ga. Long hours, late nights plus we had an hours drive on each end. Then we spent all day Sunday cleaning the cart down to get it to where we could sell on the streets on Monday. But the money was good.
If you can’t get into an event due to time and it’s close enough, go take a look at it. You may find it really isn’t worth it (like one we just looked at). Don’t forget Art Festivals.
