American Streetcar Promotions' autocross is set up in the parking lot behind the parking garage at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center in Biloxi for Cruisin' The Coast.

Open to registered Cruisers who sign a waiver, they may drive the course as many times as they want for free.

Under the B.F. Goodrich Share-The-Ride program, any spectator can sign a waver, too, and ride as a passenger in an approved car.

The Autocross course will be open Tuesday and Wednesday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Brian Finch of Nashville of ASP (American Streetcar Promotions) said "Anyone with four tires and a steering wheel can come out here with their car, throw around through the cones in a nice safe environment, have fun and just live the hot-rodding dream."

It is a 35-40 seconds to run the course.

It is "the fastest 40 mph of your life," Finch said. "It can be a humbling experience."
