Sometimes, posts don’t need words.

So heading into this weekend’s MAVTV 500 at Auto Club Speedway, we’re just posting Gil de Ferran’s record lap of 241.428, an all-time closed course record, set October 28, 2000.

IndyCar 2014 is awesome from a competitive standpoint. But man, I miss this noise. And this speed.

    Ahhhh yes C.A.R.T how I miss the old days of turbo charged engines.

      You mean Turbocharged V8s.

    I miss the budgets that tobacco money afforded (notice I didn’t say I miss tobacco money per se.)

    Sage Karam dates de Farran’s daughter.
