It’s finally here, friends. This week marks the 2022 United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas, and it’s one of my favorite weekends of the year. I know there’s more than enough in the great city of Austin, TX to provide you with a weekend of entertainment — but if you’re looking to hang out with some like-minded folks who also love racing, then this list is for you.

We’ve put together a running list of events for you fine folks to attend. Some are free, some are paid, but all are guaranteed to be a great time. So, clear your schedules!

Do note that there is not an official Jalopnik meet-up this year. We didn’t have the budget to rent a space, and after paying for my own travel to cover race car, it certainly wasn’t in mine! But with that being said, I’m aiming to be everywhere all at once if you want to come say hello.
