SCCA – Pirelli World Challenge at Mid-Ohio, Best Races of the Weekend

The IndyCar weekend at the Mid-Ohio SportsCar Course is a special one for myself and Mr. Whitesell. It’s a wonderful weekend of gorging ourselves on fried bologna sandwiches, tasty craft beers, and as much racing as you can pack into a 10-hour day. In addition to the Verizon IndyCar Series, the entire Mazda Road to Indy Program which includes Indy Lights, Pro Mazda, and USF2000, were on hand, as well as the best damn racing in North America the Pirelli World Challenge. Even when the weekend was shared with the…

IndyCar – The MidOhio IndyCar and MRTI Weekend in Photos

Wow. That took a while! I bought some larger cards and felt like I needed to fill them all. Ugh. I finally sorted through and edited all the open-wheel photos and have them posted below.

SCCA – KCRSCCA Solo Event #1 in Photos

Well the Solo season is underway in the Kansas City Region of the SCCA, and it’s time for me to start the defense of my Street Touring FWD class championship. Some maintenance on Friday to replace the passenger side drive shaft on the Focus SVT didn’t go as planned thanks to a rounded-off nut. …and we were two nuts away from having the damned thing out, too. Oh, well, screw it. Popped the top on another beer, bolted it all together, and went to the pre-season testing session on Saturday…
