So, it’s Mid-January, it’s so fricken cold here that your eye juice feels like it’s freezing as soon as you walk outside, and the racing season feels like it’s impossibly far away.

Brought to you by the terrific folks at Inside Track News Magazine. It kicked off today, but the meat & potatoes of the action takes place on the weekend (here’s the schedule) Including the late addition of Monsieur Jacques Villeneuve! (Open Wheel… represent!)
I’ll be up there Saturday and Sunday, wandering around, snapping pics, going to seminars, and gathering news and gossip for here and OOW as well as repping for Level Ten Communications alongside Chris Jameson at our seminar on Sunday. If you’re in the hood, drop by!

I guess we shall see…
Anyway, I’ll post some pics and notes throughout the weekend.
