And the winner is....Ryan Briscoe. On
this trip I was just a stone's throw from this track, but was I there
the right weekend?....No! I have to admit that it is not one of my
favorite tracks, but I would have loved to see Ryan Briscoe make this
win. Especially since I have referred to him as Mr. Second Place in the past. Will Power landed in second place by 00.44 seconds. Third goes to Dario Franchetti.
I thought that I was going to go see this race live since I am visiting the area on vacation. It has always been one of my favorite tracks and only about 3 hours from where I am. It didn't happen because I had a friend fly in from Las Vegas to see me on Saturday and Sunday. Scot Dixon was the winner and he also made the top 10 list of all-time IndyCar winners. He was followed by Will Power and Simon Pagenaud.
This 1967 Porsche 912 CPE is a strong and reliable driver. It's a 5-speed with a big bore kit that I'd get in and drive anywhere.
