We’re swamped this weekend, but doing our best to keep up with festivities at one of our favorite tracks. Right now, Martin Plowman (@Plowey) is throwing down in the Firestone Indy Lights race – from pole to top of the podium. First pole and win for Plowey – he’s going to be stoked! (In fact, the race just finished and Plowey’s driving his victory lap with his hand on his helmet as if in disbelief.)
We’re not sure who has anything for Willy P in the IZOD IndyCar race. All he has to do is take the green flag and he’ll lock up the road course championship. We may all just be stuck watching what happens behind him, which, unless there is wreckage, usually isn’t much at Mid-OH!. This race is much better to attend than watch on TV. Great vistas, gorgeous surroundings, lovely for walking the track. Back in her younger years (early 90s) Bash had a wimpy little camera and would hang in the carousel turn to get better shots as the cars slowly (well, for them) wound their way around that right hander. Mid-OH! as a result has a soundtrack – we love this old song from The Hollies.
