sideshow
 n.— «But he also thinks the Stockton Police Department crossed a line when they impounded his truck from his driveway Saturday and accused him of “sideshowing”—a term used to describe a reckless display behind the wheel for a crowd of people.…Anderson was caught up in an ongoing effort since March by police that found about 1,400 citations issued and 15 cars impounded. In “sideshows,” drivers of hot cars show off spinning illegal donuts and burnouts amid clouds of smoke from squealing tires.» —“Man says police violated rights by impounding truck” by Scott Smith The Record (Stockton, California) July 4, 2006.
