Rolex Daytona 24 hours - preseason racing fix
Hi All,

I've turned on the Rolex 24 hours - beats college (American) football! Ahh, some familiar faces & voices - Bob Varsha, David Hobbs...JPM, Danica, Dario. Helps get me through the Black Season.

Porsche is leading in both fields: sport car & GT cars...makes me wish (again) that they'd enter F-1 these days.

I missed most of Saturday's action, but saw the end of the race today. Holy crap! What a great battle there at the end! I couldn't believe the move Buddy Rice put on Scott Pruett to take over the lead. Brilliant! I've always liked Buddy Rice, but I didn't think he'd be able to get around the sportscar prodigy that is Mr. Pruett. It was also very cool, so see Mr. Donohue following in his father's footsteps. Now if someone could put him in a quality ride for Le Mans and the 500, all would be right and well with the world. Smile

What a fantastic race! I had to head out to the kid's basketball game but came back and picked up the last hour off the tivo. Probably the most exciting race I've seen in some time. Fantastic finish except for Monty's whining in the post race interview. He made a valiant effort but just lacked the HP on the oval to take the lead back.

Kudos to Brumos for a well deserved and earned win. It's been a long time.

Hah - in the last few laps when they started talking about fuel levels, I think everyone was flashing back to Montreal last year. Should be another awesome season with GAC again this year. We should get a posse together to head down and watch the race at Laguna Seca in May.

Oh - and if you want to see some REALLLY good racing, dig up the Koni Challenge race - the lower - end Grand Am guys. Speed had to do it split screen to keep track of the massive battles going on between GS (BMW M3 vs Mustangs) and ST (Cobalt vs Honda vs Mazda vs Subaru vs about 3 other cars in a pack). Awsome, awesome, awesome.
