Like most American kids that grew up in the 80's I watched the Indy 500 every year and became interested in motorsports thanks to that race, but I didn't really get hooked until I started watching Formula 1 racing in the late 90's. My favorite era were those years with the great Mika Hakkinen/Michael Schumacher battles. (I was a Mika Hakkinen fan) So my fondness for Formula 1 waned once Mika retired and Schumacher started winning everything, even at the expense of his teammate Rubens Barrichello. My interest in F1 has only been lukewarm since.

Then I turned to Champ Car racing here in the US for my motorsports fix. However that was quickly extinguished once Champ Car and Indy Car merged and we were stuck with Tony George and his many foibles. (It was entertaining to watch the Hulman/George drama I'll admit.) My interest has been less than lukewarm with Indy Car lately, even without Tony George at the helm.

Over time however, the excitement I once had for motorsports has slowly gone. Maybe it has to do with my age, I don't know. But I think I will pour my efforts into my Trooper and my interests in the outdoors to add excitement to my life.

Thanks for checking out my blog, I hope you enjoy it. I will still post racing news when I find something interesting or noteworthy.

Yeah Hayden, I'm only 23. However, in other news, other people celebrating their birthdays today:

Food Network's Giada de Laurentiis turns 38.

-Hayden Fan
You mean that woman I've been eyeing on the Food Network is old enough to be my mother? UGH!! I though she was 10 years younger.
You're too young.

-Angry Dwarf
Stranger: Oh, look at me, I'm 23
Hayden: Oh, look at me, I'm 18

Oh, she is too old for you, she must be 28,

Well, let me put my teeth in, and just say

F*ck you both...

And I mean that in the most sincerest manner.
