Part of the fun and mystique of owning collector cars whether they are muscle cars, sports cars, hot rods or rat rods are the stories behind them. The stories about how they were acquired, about the breakdowns, about the special trips and especially about the people encountered along the way.

IRL INDY CARS at Nashville 2008; Wet and Win

Indy Car Racing is back! The split between IRL and Cart was terrible. It took Indy Car racing from the top to almost killing it. NASCAR was a second rate series until the split. We just got back from the Nashville race and it was a disappointment. Last year we didn’t get to see one car on the track. It got rained out and we couldn’t make the rain date.

Tonight, the rain came but we were already gone. The lighting in TN can get plenty wild and we were not going to take a chance in the stands.

Scott Dixon was supposed to pit, missed it and stayed out. The leaders pitted in the first rain delay and he went to the lead. That mistake made him the winner when the second rain delay came and eventually ended the race. Tony Kanaan, Helio Castroneves and Danica Patrick all lead or had a chance but it was not to be.

Think Penske has the best equipment, you should see the rest of his stuff. Outstanding!
