Hello Daytona

Two days of testing on the 10-turn, 2.73 mile road course at Daytona International Speedway start today. Woo-hoo!

OK, there are probably more fun things to do than sit around and watch one car at a time spin around a road course, but still it beats a sharp stick in the eye. Besides, Uncle Sam and Rocky will be rolling around using brand-spankin' new 3.5L Ethanol-fueled Honda prototype engines that all drivers in the IndyCar series will be using in 2007.

Iceman, Mirror Man and Well Done will be dogging it in ye olde 3.0 powered by the Methanol version of E10. Yeah, it's kinda technical for me too.

Anyhow, TrackSide Online promises pictures, and I'm sure Indycar.com will have a few as well. If you are in the area, head on down and buy a tour pass of the facility and watch the guys buzz down the straightaway at Daytona.

Think of it as payback for the Brickyard 400.

    Road courses and E100! Speaking my language. I'm wearing my Champ Car world tour 2006 T-shirt today just for Jeff and in honor of my tough-as-hell girl Katherine Legge. Come on, IRL, you KNOW you're going to watch the race at Surfers Paradise, Australia on 10/22. Soon you'll be bi-series like me.
