INDYCAR IN ALABAMA


This is still one of my favorite tracks in the U.S. Without any major problems other than a great fight at the end Simon Pagenaud won for the second time in two weeks. He was followed by a beat-up Graham Rahal and third went to Josef Newgarden who is on my current favorite team.

Montoya had a good run from last to 5th. Tony Kanaan in 8th and Takuma Sato in 13th.

FORMULA E IN FRANCE

This was the first electric race in the streets of Paris. While I like the idea of electric cars and know they will get better with time I still find it hard to watch them race. Lucas di Grassi pulled off his third win of the season and is now in first place for the championship. Former Formula One driver, Jean-Eric Vergne, came in second. Third went to popular Sebastien Buemi.

INDYCAR IN CALIFORNIA



Simon Pagenaud came in first under the complaints of Scott Dixon who was second. The complaint was that Pagenaud had committed an infraction of the rules on leaving the pit area. This infraction allowed him to get in front of Dixon. There was no penalty given and the results stand. Third went to Helio Castroneves. The difference between 1st and 2nd was .3032,,,,plenty close.

Takuma Sato ended in 5th and Tony Kanaan ended in 6th.

FORMULA ONE IN CHINA

VETTEL, 2ND - TONY ROSS, MERCEDES - ROSBERG, 1ST - KVYAT, 3RD

This was really a good race with everybody challenging everybody. No accidents and all cars finished. After the first couple of turns Rosberg jumped into the lead and the race could have stopped there. In the end he was 38 seconds ahead of Vettel followed by Kvyat.

Massa came in 6th and Hulkenburg was 15th. It is too bad that all the races are not as good as this one.

BARN FIND

NOTE: Just when you thought there couldn't be any more barn finds to be found this appears. What is in your garage or your neighbor's garage...what does grandpa have? Text by Jerry Heasley and photos by Hotrod.



Forty-one years passed.
“Get that Corvette running,” “Get it out,” “Let’s get it going,” everybody kept telling Jay Wisler. Finally, in 2015, with his friend Mike LaRocca’s prodding, Wisler unearthed this ’57 Vette, still with the original drivetrain and paint, interior rotted, but also “untouched” since new. Beside the ’57, Wisler had also stored another “keeper:” a ’55, yellow with green interior; this one not so original.
From 1968 until 1975, Jay Wisler owned a shop repairing and restoring Vettes in Tampa, Florida. In 1974, a friend mentioned a ’57 for sale about 45 minutes north in Leesburg. The price in 1974 was $5,200, not exactly cheap even 40-plus years ago. However, Wisler remembers in the early 1970s when everything “1957 Chevy” was hot: two-door hardtops, Nomads, convertibles and Corvettes. Wisler paid more for the ’57 due to its “untouched” status, very difficult to find even in the early 1970s. Also, the ’57 Vette was a 245-horsepower dual-quad 283 for sale by the original owner, a Colonel Edward Wright James, an Air Force veteran of three wars: World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
The ’55 Vette was much cheaper at $1,500, but it had no engine or transmission. “I bought the ’55 from an old friend of mine that needed the money to buy two Corvair Spyders that he thought were a better investment.”
More than one person has wanted to buy these two old Vettes over the years. Most recently, the TV show Pickers expressed an interest to do a shoot in Jay’s garage. Wisler killed the proposed deal because a prerequisite was selling them one or both of the Vettes. Jay’s plan is to build the ’55 for his daughter and keep the ’57 for fun driving and car showing.
LaRocca is Jay’s very talented friend of a half century. “We pulled the cars out. We took the ’57 to Mike’s place. He went ahead and changed the oil, rebuilt the carburetors and we got the thing running.”
“The dealer told Colonel James if he would wait two more weeks, Chevrolet was coming out with a new four-speed, all synchronized where you don’t have to stop to go into First gear. He said he didn’t want one more gear to worry about shifting.” James lived in Tucson, Arizona, in 1957 when he went looking for a new Corvette. He found 20 or 21 on the lot of City Chevrolet in Los Angeles, but none in the specific color he wanted: Aztec Copper. Colonel James felt Aztec Copper would camouflage the desert’s red dirt.
The car got plenty dirty when James raced at El Mirage, probably about 1957 or 1958. “He raced it one time at El Mirage in California. He made a flying mile and got a plaque. He told me he decoupaged that plaque into a wooden coffee table with several other items from his military service.”
The Colonel passed away in 1981, but his wife, Betsy, 15 years younger, is still alive. She has no knowledge of the table, but married the Colonel three years after he bought the Corvette.
Wisler recalls James quoted his top speed in the flying mile at 154 mph, a figure Wisler believes is not possible with a stock three-speed and a set of 3.55s in a 245-horse Corvette.

FORMULA ONE IN BAHRAIN

NICO ROSBERG

This was a pretty decent race for Bahrain. Last year was a good one too. So maybe this is a vision of things to come. Rosberg jumped out in front and stayed there. A Ferrari in second, but a different one than usual....one belonging to Kimi Raikkonen. Lewis Hamilton came in third.

My favorites, Massa came in 8th and Nico Hulkenberg came in 15th suffering right from the beginning of the race.

There were several drives of note starting with Raikkonen whose car actually held together. Romain Grosjean, driving for the new American team, came in 5th. As a team this will be my favorite for sometime into the future because of all the naysayers before they hit the track. Stoffel Vandoorne, emergency fill-in for Alonso, had never driven in a Formula One race. He came in 10th and in the points.....I don't think McLaren will be letting him go in the near future...I am sure they will use him to replace one of their high priced drivers. Rookie Pascal Wehrlein, driving for Manor, came in 13th which is probably the best they have ever done. Wehrlein came with the new Mercedes engines and I am sure we will see a big improvement in this team.

INDYCAR IN ARIZONA

SCOTT DIXON

Scott Dixon made it look easy. It was the first time he has won at Phoenix. Coming in second was Simon Pagenaud and his teammate Will Power was third.

My favorites:

Tony Kanaan was 4th
Sebastian Bourdais was 8th
Juan Pablo Montoya was 9th
Takuma Sato was 15th
Ed Carpenter was 21st due to wreck

My favorites list is getting longer....each one has a special reason as to why they are a favorite.
