Stuff...

I’ve watched more F-1s this year than probably the last 5 yrs combined. The parity of chassis, engines, and chauffeurs makes for some great racing.

i don't have tv so i'm going to watch it at the Motor Racing Research Center on their big screen...

the Glen Historian opens the Center for every race live time and it's usually a good party

On a side note: The pole record holder Reubens B. missed the IZOD race today. His car wouldn’t start - bummer!
