Moment of honesty? I spent practice, qualification, and the race texting with Abby and Juliana (our driver analyst). We were all nervous going into the race. Texas Motor Speedway is not for the faint of heart, and there was one practice before qualifications and then right into the race. I’m pleased the nagging dread we … Continue reading Bump Up the Grip (Texas Review)
I’m weirdly nostalgic when it comes to the end of the year. I think I weight the new year more heavily than I do a birthday. Perhaps something about the planet as a whole doing a full revolution together, or my birthday was always right at the start of school and so it wasn’t fun. … Continue reading 2019 – What a Year

Every time. It's heartache.
During qualifications for the 1972 Indianapolis 500, driver Jim Hurtubise did what all fans do during the weekend – enjoyed themselves. Hurtubise had qualified a car and towards the end of the session had another car wheeled into line. It wasn’t uncommon to qualify multiple cares in that era. This was right before 6pm, and … Continue reading Don’t Bring Beer If You Can’t Share With Everyone
We sat high above the start/finish line on the straightaway to watch pole day. It was a great place to watch the cars fly by as each driver strove to get the most out of their car and it was a great place for someone without a photographer’s vest to sit. The morning session had … Continue reading Carpenter’s White Whale
