19th Edition of Orlando World Street Nationals Rescheduled to 2012
NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Orlando Speed World Dragway
August 10, 2011
Carl Weisinger promoter of Orlando Speed World Dragway and the World Street Nationals announced today that he has decided to reschedule the 19 TH edition of the oldest and most prestigious, quarter-mile all heads up door slammer event in drag racing until 2012.
“In 36 years of promoting drag races and 18 straight years of holding the World Street Nationals at Orlando Speed World Dragway I’ve never had to make a more difficult decision than this one". said Weisinger. "I know many, as we are, will be disappointed."
"I have talked to several racers and some of them candidly tell me the economy and the general business environment right now makes committing the money to prepare the car and travel to Florida a luxury they really have to consider. Travel costs have escalated tremendously in the last year and their disposable income has taken a hit. I just don't want to hold the World Street Nationals event if I think it may not be the premiere door slammer race our fans and racers have come to expect.
The problem certainly isn't the number of spectators. While many events have struggled we had just over 14,000 paid admissions and made a decent profit last year. No other similar event that actually sells tickets even comes close. There are also issues with circumstances that were problems in years past resurfacing.
Some of the classes have been split and split again with a list of rules it would take a Philadelphia lawyer to decide what the weight should be. There are too many rules, too many classes, too many short sighted promoters, too many look alike races, too many series and not enough cars right now to support it all. We'll give it a year a see how it all shakes out. But, I can tell you this. When we lay out the easy rules, generous pay outs, awards and gifts for the next World Street Nationals we plan, as always, to make it entertaining to the spectators and rewarding to the racers and crews. Stay tuned."

First Off, Welcome To The New Home Of The Speed World Dragway
We’re finally getting a facelift for our Speed World Dragway website. WTF Web and Graphics Design in association with goDragRacing.org are on board to begin this transition into a new age of easy to use navigation, many cool features not found on our old website and try and reproduce a long history of track functions in a whole new format.
This is a long road as some of the pages are yet unfinished but we are moving quickly since race day for the Street Nationals Is Almost Here!!
One of the largest undertakings for this project is the needed information, photos and backgrounds for the rest of the website which we thank whole heartedly for the help of the many sources involved.
We assure you as this grows it will become a monster fulfilling all our track needs and adding to the racers and fans experience of the Most Talked About Drag Race In The World, "The Orlando Real World Street Nationals".
