The Need for Speed
Whether it's crystal meth or driving fast, the quest for speed ain't cheap. Now, we don't recommend sucking drug fumes through a pen tube out of a butane-torched, upside-down light bulb. It'll keep you up for days, make your teeth fall out, and have you robbing grannies. We do, however, recommend red lines, screeching tires, burning rubber, and keeping your pedal to the metal.
So head for Homestead Karting's Rmax Challenge at Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend and watch the races for free. These high-performance go-karts rock 125cc engines, sit an inch and a half off the ground, and do 120 miles per hour. Between the three-layer fire suits, helmets, and strain to forearms, core, back, neck, and brain, we're talking serious motorsports. Bring some drinks, buy a burger, and watch the drivers play dirty in the qualifiers.
