Default Racing in Orlando / Kissimmee

Hi,
I'm coming to Orlando on March 1st for 2 weeks. Will there be any on road racing in Orlando or Kissimmee during this time ? I was hoping to visit the Kissimmee track but there doesn't seem to be a thread on here for it any more.

many thanks,
32819toon

There is also racing at Strickland, in Holly Hill about an hour east on I-4, offroad on 3/3 and oval on 3/10. Great place to race or just visit.

I'm gonna spectate. I'm hoping to bring my 4 year old son. He has an electric car which is basically a toy, but not a bad model in all fairness, probably a good enough one to get him interested. Trouble is the weather here is so bad he rarely gets to use it. I don't konw how long he will stay interested for though !! Are there any facilities at the track, or nearby shops in case we need a break ?

The shop is pretty big, they have a restroom if needed. Plaza has a nice bar/restaurant called smokey bones, last time I checked it also had a smaller bar/pub as well. Gas station too. Go to the superior racing thread and ask Jeff Brown if you need more imfo.....

There is JR Hobbies about a mile out from the track. But as far as shops in general, not much. Its on the end of an old Runway.
