In Memory of Dan Wheldon 1978-2011
I am by no means an isc or nascar supporter but i actually am excited for 2014. This merger i predict will go rather smoothly with all races in the US and ACO approval. This split was nothing like "another" racing series and should be an easy mending of the fence if there ever was one . I have always supported both series and look forward to seeing the best of both worlds.

Speed is suggesting that they may split the prototypes and GT cars into separate races at some tracks...not a bad idea.

Some real nice shots in there ... the one of the Core PC through the corner workers' hut was weird and imaginative, and some of the rest were just gorgeous photos. Couple of shots with cars going one way in the foreground and the other way in the background worked well, too. Looks like the track offers up some great backgrounds. Thanks for sharing.
A merged road racing series could very good for VIR, and I would certainly put that on anyones bucket list for them. Bring the RV, or the tent.
