Sunshine Speedway, our local 1/8 mile track is closing down. Some new guy with more money than brains, won the lease for the land from the county by outbidding the current track owner 10x. They plan to invest big money to get the circle track up and running again and use everything else as a parking lot. The track has been open since 1958. I expect to see street racing become a big problem around here again! Both Orlando and Bradenton tracks are at least a 2 hr drive each way. There is another 1/8 mile track in Lakeland but the shut down area is so short that anything running 5's or faster runs a huge risk of hitting the concrete wall at the end!! Looks like I will need to find a new hobby.
