After an eight-year absence, American open-wheel racing has finally run a race at Road America. From what I saw, it was not the most scintillating of races as Will Power pretty much dominated the race leading forty-six of the fifty laps. But there was quite a bit of jockeying for position behind Power throughout the day.

Day Two at Road America wound up just like Day One – quickly. To have no set plans for today, the day sure got away from us. For those that were looking for Susan’s post this afternoon – quite honestly, we never came into the media center where she could write it. We were having too much fun.

Day Two at Road America appears to be more of the same – and then some. As big as the crowd was yesterday, it appears that today will be much bigger.

Sometimes when you fantasize about doing something for so long, the expectations in your head become so inflated that there is no way for reality to meet those expectations. Such was not the case for Road America today. I have been wanting to come here for more than thirty years. Since I arrived here for the first time ever today, I have not been disappointed. My only complaint? The day went by way too quickly.

Welcome To Road America

Welcome to the beautiful facility known as Road America, located in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin. I will try to be aware of how many times I use (or overuse) the word beautiful. But it’s been hard not to in this area. This is the first time I have been to the state of Wisconsin since 1972, when I was fourteen. My memory is not great, because I have no recollection of the beauty we’ve seen since we got her yesterday afternoon.
