Spectator sports / motorsports July 5th - 6th

Hello all,

My partner Cheryl and I are planning a Deep South road trip this summer. At home in England we aren't huge sports fans but have really enjoyed going to a MLB game and some drag racing while on vacation in the States.

Can anyone help us out with what sports we might be able to see while we are visiting? We would be particularly interested in seeing some football, monster trucks or motor racing and would be keen to try a tailgate if we get the chance. We would be interested to hear any other suggestions of sports events that could be good to try while we are in the South.

We will be passing through Alabama around 5/6th July from New Orleans heading east towards Florida, where we need to get back to Sanford by 9th July.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Along the same line as the reply in the MS thread, as for baseball, Mobile (farm team of the Angels) has home games during then. Mobile is en route from New Orleans to FL.

Not sure where in FL you are going but Pensacola and Jacksonville also have teams. Look the Milb.com website for teams and schedules

By the way, it probably isn't necessary to buy tix in advance for minor league baseball, unless you do the morning of so you don't have to stand in line. But no need to go to stub hub etc for those. Stub hub is, though, an good place to browse for ideas, as said previously.
