Weekend wrap up…

While the IndyCar peeps enjoyed a weekend off. (and those of us that cover it enjoyed a long overdue break) there was lots of on track action elsewhere, and lots of history making stuff at that!

Rolex Grand Am series enjoyed the closest finish in series history, and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer team πŸ˜‰ Awesome final lap! (actually the last few laps were pretty awesome) Highlights here
I have to wonder if my pal Chris has sobered up yet…

F1 enjoyed an exciting final few laps, and another first time winner in Kovalainen, as Massa’s Ferrari engine “blowed up real good” in the final laps. Timo Glock also had a stellar performance coming back from his huge shunt last week to place second on the podium.

Even Nascar made a little history this weekend running in the rain in Montreal for the Nationwide race. It was actually kinda fun to watch. I would have liked to see the weather clear and the race resume as I’m almost positive Patreek would have gotten Fellows for the win. (but I’m happy for Fellows too… so I’m torn)

OH and big thumbsup up & kudos for Jacombs Racing and Andrew Ranger who took the win in the Canadian Tire Nascar series in Montreal earlier that day. We won’t talk about Tags… suffice it to say the euphoria of winning in Edmonton was quickly dissipated by the ridiculousness of what happened to him this weekend.

On top of that I uploaded a crapload of pics to my facebook and am in the process of uploading them to the Open Wheel World website (we really REALLY need to work out a better system for that for next season I must say…) I also uploaded a PT-centric album here for y’all to peruse. Will upload more from the weekend soon.
