DRO editor, Jeff Burk, will be spending the weekend at Florida’s Orlando Speed World visiting with track operator Carl Weisinger and watching his newest favorite cars, sport compacts. The event set-up is a little different from last year and these little powerhouses will be racing on the full quarter mile for $20,000 to the winner. [10/26/2012]
