    Marty Reid, Las Vegas, October 16th 2011

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • The worst thing about crashing A.J.'s car twice in two days is you still have to go to dinner with him. And he makes you buy, and then he eats your bowl of ice cream, too.

    Billy Boat

  • 3-horse chase. Power, Dixie and GR

    Curt Cavin with a new twist on an old saying, GP of Baltimore 2013
