    Dan Wheldon.....

    We have truly missed you the past 11 years. Today would have been your 44th birthday. Time goes so fast. But our memories of you never fade. God Bless you always.

    Happy Birthday--Jimmy Clark

    I watched him drive his entire career and I was so sad when he died at only 32 years old. He was my favorite, without a doubt. And to me he was the greatest race driver who ever lived. He won the Indianapolis 500 in 1965- the year I graduated from high school. And while we were celebrating...

    yesterday when she let it slip that she will be driving for Ed Carpenter in the Indy 500 race this year. I'm glad she got a ride. :)

    What races will you be attending?

    For me it will be St. Petersburg, like always. Indy Gran Prix and Indy 500. The Mid Ohio and Pocono are a maybe. I do have a new/never used tent ready for camping, though. So are any of you planning on going to any of next year's races?

    Danica- coming back to Indycar?

    I guess the way she's talking, she will be losing her ride next year. The Rahals would like to see her come back. I don't think she should have ever left. Is money more than success? Maybe, I guess. But I think she would have really had a successful career in IndyCar. Water under the bridge...

    Happy Birthday, Danica Patrick!!

    So, here's a question for you- while Danica is blowing out the candles on her cake today. (Oh yes, she can drive and eat it too!!) :D My opinion? I think that she should have stayed in Indycar. I think by now she would have had several Indycar wins under her belt and she would have been...

    Awesome weekend at St. Pete!!

    What a race!! The threat of rain passed by on a few occasions so it turned out to be a fabulous day! The best part about it was the autographs that my son and I got over the weekend. I'll try and post a few pictures later if I can. But here's a list of the autographs we got: some of them I would...

    Who ya rootin' for...........

    In IndyCar this year? For me, it's going to be Joseph Newgarden. He's with a good owner. Hopefully, a good team. And I think he will do well. At least I am rooting' for him. How about you? Any predictions? Who are you going to be rooting for to have a great year and/or win it all?

    Is Newgarden the guy?

    Now that he is with Penske, is he going to be the next golden boy? I think he can win some races. We'll see. Whata you guys think?

    Happy Birthday, Jimmy Clark!!

    Born in 1936. He would have been 79 today. I don't have to tell you he was my favorite. I grew up watching him through my high school days. He was my hero. First class all the way. And as I remember it, back then, kids picked out decency, dignity and goodness for their idols. I was...

    Strange things happen............

    Most of you probably remember......three years ago today, the tragic accident in Las Vegas took Dan Wheldon's life from us. I was watching the race in disbelief when it happened. Odd thing..... I have been watching the Indy 500 races on TV most of my life. My buddies and I would watch AJ...

    A Tribute To Dan Wheldon.....

    You know, I just loved seeing this young man at the track and on TV. He seemed like a tremendous person. I was crushed when he left us. I just happened to come across this tribute a few days ago. I thought I would share it with you. I hope you enjoy it. I hope it comes out OK. Push the blue...

    Which engine will they choose?

    I heard yesterday at the Indycar time trials that Ed Carpenter and Sarah Fisher Hartman were going to team together next year. Carpenter has Chevys. Fisher has Hondas. It will be interested seeing which engine they choose. Or what they will do.
