ORLANDO, Fla. – Orange County deputies are more than a month into a year-long crackdown on illegal street racers, an initiative working to force the late-night contests out of the county. 

On "The Weekly on ClickOrlando.com with Justin Warmoth" Sunday, News 6 investigator Mike Holfeld shares what it was like to ride along with Capt. Bruce McMullen and his team. McMullen also updates viewers on what he's seen since the crackdown began.

In the race for Orange County sheriff is current Orlando Police Chief John Mina, who is running without party affiliation against Democratic candidate Joe Lopez. Former Orange County SWAT Cmdr. Tom Stroup was running against the two as the only GOP candidate until he dropped out of the race in early March.

District 3 Commissioner Pete Clarke and nonprofit consultant Rob Panepinto are running against Demings for Orange County mayor.

"The Weekly" replaces "Flashpoint" and airs just after 8 a.m. during the News 6 Sunday morning newscast.
