News Update for 3/14/24

This is Thursday of Race Week and the action picks up significantly today at the Sebring International Raceway with qualifying, racing, and the first on-track appearance of drivers in this year’s Mobil One 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Cadillac.
They will have both morning and afternoon sessions – and one of the big draws of Race Week – night practice.
The Whelen Mazda MX-5 Series, The Porsche Carerra Cup and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo all have qualifying sessions and their first races of the weekend today.
Mazda drivers also will have an autograph session this evening.
There also will be qualifying for competitors in the Alan Jay 120 Michelin Pilot Challenge.
On stage tonight in the Fan Zone will be RockTown and the Jefferson Starship.

Apparently, the Crown Jewel of the Ridge suddenly has found itself looking for a new police chief.
Lake Wales Police Chief Christopher Velasquez has been suspended, and Lake Wales City Manager James Slaton says they’re already looking for a replacement.
In a memo to Velasquez, Slaton accuses him of nepotism, favoritism and a lack of transparency. Velasquez’ three-day unpaid suspension begins next week, and the city will start looking for a new chief in April.
Velasquez will remain chief until the city finds a replacement. He has been chief since 2011, and he has been with the department since 1992.
