RE: Love Bug Alert (travel advisory)
Fontana. I was thinking about my daughter and I going down there for the
Cup race. No restricter plates there. I guess when Bill Elliot turned a
lap of 212mph at talladega, which was
faster then the Indy, gosh I mean CART cars of that time someone must
have decided it was time put on the brakes. Also, it is pretty
embarrassing that the Busch cars are indeed running faster then Winston
Cup. Take heart! The Touring series is going to really pick up steam
here in the U.S. giving us real fender to fender racing. I just want to
see Audi and VW in it. Last
year BMW was the only european model that I saw at Laguna Seca.
Thanks to all for clearing up my confusion about Bobby Unser's spin in
a quattro on an oval.
