Re: F1 - Halo to the Rescue (Spoiler)

Re: My health and other topics

Re: F1 - Halo to the Rescue (Spoiler)

Thanks for all of the well wishes, guys. I failed to thank all up front in my first post here.

Re: IndyCar Back to Richmond

Had to do a little digging, but I remember that Mario Andretti won his first Champ Car (IndyCar) race there. 1965. Also, that was the first time IndyCars raced on a road course. Al Unser won the...
