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.

Some funny Crapwagon comments that were posted during the Le Mans 24

I can't believe I'm missing nascar truck practice for this stupid sports car race.

Hey, those headlight stickers have light coming out of them!

This so legendary.

I can't stop smiling.

It oozes with legitimacy.

Racing is supposed to be dangerous. Not IRL dangerous and a death trap. But it is supposed to be just fast enough and dangerous enough that it differentiates itself from say, tennis.

Michael Waltrip must be crapping his pants over a race that oozes this much legitimacy
