Racing Companies Launch Campaign to Combat Illegal Street Racing in Orlando

Several Central Florida auto racing companies have announced that they are working together to launch a campaign intended to reduce the amount of illegal street racing on area roadways. The announcement for the “Off the Streets and to the Race Track” campaign comes days after a street racing accident on Heintzelman Road injured nearly a dozen people. Organizers say that the program will begin this coming September and will provide a safe alternative to street racing by letting drivers race their cars on local race tracks instead of streets.
