I still think that VIR and Road America are some of the best tracks in the world. Watkins Glen was great till the chicane was put in on the back straight.

Dear Boss,

I would like to request vacation for the whole week of Thanksgiving 2012. Work can go to hell, I'm going to Texas.

Signed,
Jurgen Offagin Schultz

I'd go to a November race.

Is there a date for the Aussie V-8's?

The commentary on Sunday's race made it sound like the constructors are fighting the move to November. Would end the season with thee pairs one week apart then two weeks. ---Japan/Korea then Abu Dhabi/Bahrain and finally US/Brazil. Sounds like they thing this is unworkable.

I like the idea myself.

Eggsactly. Drag strips, unlike straight-less Tilke tracks,
have a high level of excitement when they are raced on.

I don't really get drag racing. Just seems kind of repetitive.
