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.

I was primering a B58 Hustler, and watched it dry.

Then sanded it, carefully. Going for a metallic finish, needs to be baby butt smooth,
and then practically through it through the window when 3 CHARGERS DEFENDERS couldn't deflect a freaking pass, and then just went for a long bike ride lamenting what happened.

I do blame it on FTG.

Go Bobby!!!! (Martinez. Surfer. Boost Mobile is this week. Now that is worth watching)

Now, on topic, isn't it easier, and less painful to hit yourself in the nuts with a hammer, than watch Crapwagons?
