Loren Williams, a 1984 graduate of Dunnellon High School, brought his love for autocross to Dunnellon on Saturday, where the director of FAST (Fun Autocross Society of Tampa) was using the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport as an autocross course for the day. Unfortunately for Williams, he was unable to compete because of mechanical issues with his car. “Things went great, and we’ll be back,” he said, noting no date has been set for the next event.
Life in the FAST lane

For one day, at least, the roar of the engines at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport had nothing to do with aviation.

And that’s because the decades-old facility was converted into a raceway of sorts, as FAST (Fun Autocross Society of Tampa) was using the facility as an autocross course.

FAST is an autocross club based in the Tampa area that started in 2007, and has roots with another club dating back to about 1998, according to Loren Williams, the director of the organization.
