Reflections On Michigan II

Another good race is in the can.

Not that many years ago, I never would have imagined  I would say some of the best racing on the circuit is at MIS. But there it is again.

And now, apparently the track has employed the hot dog wrapper police. There was a miniscule fraction the number of wrappers as what used to be the norm.

I think Nascar has hit on the perfect substitute for the notorious “debris” caution – precision cloud seeding leading to a small number of  necessary short time-outs. MIS especially benefits from this – not for the usual competition reasons, but because a 2 and 1/2 hour event is disheartening. If you’ve spent many multiples of that driving to and from a race, you don’t want the actual event to last only as long as say, “Inglourious Basterds”.

99, let it go. If you intentionally give up your position, don’t expect everyone to have to wait for you to make up your mind. You’re fortunate the 24 cut you some slack.

The “Splitter”. We’ve seen the danger and destruction it can cause on the track. What kind of effect might it have on a crew member’s ankle?

On a lighter note: Was the 6 driving on an air hockey surface? It was as if you could drive by, stick your finger out the window, and turn him.
