My Christmas Wish List for Santa

Next Tuesday night, millions of children will go to bed hoping to find exactly what they wished for under the tree on Christmas morning.   Some will want toys or clothes or electronics while others will wish for miracles or best outcomes regarding friends, family and others who are in need of help.   I happen to have a wish list too.  And since I am an unashamed fan and prosthelytizer of all things racing and still a kid at heart, the things I am wishing for will probably be of no surprise.  

Ford Armada Invades Daytona

I happen to be a Ford guy, simply because the first car I remember was the old blue Ford my dad bought brand spankin' new in Memphis, TN to move our family out to Phoenix, AZ in the summer of 1956.  It was a six-cylinder, impossible to stop tank that doubled as a solar-powered, all-metal, mobile convection oven from May through September. That was one great car.

Rolex Series on the rise, Austin F1 race sinking fast.

On Tuesday I watched, with great interest and enthusiasm, the Grand-Am press conference introducing the new Corvette-ish bodywork for all the 2012 Chevy-Powered Daytona Prototypes in the Rolex Series. 

Racing, Risk, Longevity and Chance

  This past weekend started our pretty good for yours truly.  I watched the NASCAR Nationwide Series race from Charlotte and F1 qualifying on Friday night, then caught the Las Vegas truck race, the Sprint Cup race, the Monster Energy Cup motocross event and finally the Korean Grand Prix on Saturday. The plan for Sunday included a trip to Firebird International Raceway for the NHRA Arizona Nationals, then back home to watch the DVR'd  IndyCar finale since I wasn't going to be home for most of the race.
