FORMULA ONE IN CANADA

From pole position to number one....Lewis Hamilton never looked back. He now has 56 wins in his pursuit of Michael Schumacher's record of 91. There is nothing between them. His teammate, Valtteri Bottas, came in 2nd and Daniel Riccardo 3rd.

Force India is doing a fantastic job, coming in 5th and 6th. Team Haas finished 10th and 12th. Hulkenberg finished 8th and Massa 19th due to an accident in the first lap.

Supposedly the late driver, Ayrton Senna, was the childhood hero of Hamilton. Over the weekend Hamilton equaled two records left by Senna. One was getting the 65th pole position and the other was getting four grand slams in a race. Which is pole position, fastest lap, leading every lap and winning the race. There are others at four, two at five and the Jim Clark at eight. His only current challenge is Sebastian Vettel. A nice touch from the Senna family for reaching the 65th pole  they gave Hamilton a genuine Ayrton Senna racing helmet. Very nice!

INDYCAR IN TEXAS

ONLY IN TEXAS

Holy Moly! As I have said before the oval tracks keep you on the edge of your seat. This race reminded me of the Friday and Saturday Demolition Derby events they had at the small ovals near where I lived as a kid. I have never seen anything like it in years. Out of 22 starting cars there were only 8 left at the end under caution. All the cars that went out were due to accidents except one. View the highlight video below. In the major accident three teams lost both of their cars. One team that runs on the edge of money may have a hard time getting set up again. In the end, Will Power was the winner with Tony Kanaan second and Simon Pagenaud third.

Takuma Sato was given 10th place, but was out due to an accident. Ed Carpenter Racing was given 11th and 12th, but both cars were out in the big accident, later returned, but didn't finish in the running.

INDYCAR IN MICHIGAN - RACE TWO

A clean sweep, for Graham Rahal, that is. He is the first to win a double race at Detroit. Scott Dixon did it a few years ago in Toronto. At the end there was a two lap shoot-out. Usually shoot-out has everyone on the edge of their seats, but not this one. It was still good enough to give Rahal the win. Josef Newgarden came in 2nd and Will Power came in 3rd.

Takuma Sato, who started out very strong. came in 4th and Tony Kanaan finished 10th. Ed Carpenter Racing finished in 18th and 21st.

Sunday

INDYCAR IN MICHIGAN - RACE ONE

A beautiful day in my old home town. The city never looks so good as it does from a distance. Graham Rahal collected his first win of the season. He is married to Courtney Force, a NHRA drag racer, who had a massive engine explosion last night without injuries. In second place was Scott Dixon who was playing over pain from last weeks huge accident at the Indy 500. Third went to James Hinchcliffe who had spun out in the early part of the race, but was able to make up the time.

Takuma Sato, like all Indy 500 winners not winning the next race, finished 8th and Tony Kanaan finished 15th. Ed Carpenter Racing finished 10th and 17th.

LAS VEGAS MOTORCYCLE AUCTION

I never get tired of these auctions and Mecum is trying their mid-year auction in Las Vegas this year. It was slow, but expected that. I hope Mecum finds a place to settle down. Biggest complaint in Vegas was that it was already 105 degrees. Of course, nice and cool in the auction itself, but outside, whew! This video is of my favorites of the day.....we will see what tomorrow brings.
