Hot Rod Blacktop
Whether you own a $135,000 Maserati GranTurismo S or a 96 Ford Taurus that can only be driven downhill, your ride probably qualifies for this Fridays Speedway T-n-T at Homestead-Miami Speedway (1 Speedway Blvd., Homestead). The only requirements are street-legal cars and trucks with valid vehicle registration and drivers license. So, basically, if it moves and its not stolen, youre good.
Every week from 6 p.m. to midnight, a nonstop stream of solo drivers in 69 Mustangs, souped-up Civics, and raging white Broncos drag race down the one-eighth-mile straightaway called Pit Road. Racers, though, take note: This is a street party, not a beach party no tank tops, shorts, or sandals allowed. Other rules: No booze and no drugs. Its a family event, people. Theres a $20 entry fee for racers. Otherwise, admission costs $10 for adults and $5 for kids under 12. Call 866-409-RACE, or visit homesteadmiamispeedway.com.
