that the sport we love is a deadly one. This weekend we were all sadly reminded of that once again.
Before I go into one of my signature “state of racing” rants this week, I feel it necessary to pause a moment for two men who lost their lives this past weekend behind the wheel of their race cars. While they died “in the moment” doing what they loved, that doesn’t take away the heartache their friends, fans, colleagues, teammates and family are all feeling in the aftermath of these tragedies.
I would also be remiss if I didn’t send a quiet thank you out into the universe for all the lives that are spared around the world, every weekend, year after year, so that we may be thrilled and entertained.
Rest in peace gentlemen
