Every once in a while you get reminded that you should keep your mouth shut. But I will get back to that later.

First, what did you think about the Nascar race in Phoenix yesterday? Seemed to this very casual observer to be the usual mileage run at Phoenix. I’m sorry but it doesnt seem to be a lot of “racing” going on, but maybe I’m looking in the wrong place. If I am, then somebody please point it out to me so I can look for it next time.

What is surprising is the number of engine failures. Whether they can be blamed on the EFI system is questionable to me, the factories have been using fuel injection for decades and don’t seem to have a problem.

But I know that running a fuel injected engine out of gas causes all kinds of problems, would have thought that Nascar drivers wouldn’t be cutting the engines off now. Probably wont after yesterday.

Did anybody else hear the transmission “we have a problem” right before Kevin Harvick slowed down with a couple of laps to go? Who said that/ Was it Harvick? Or somebody on the team? If the team, how did they know? Hmmm.

With Marussia and HRT finally getting their cars on the track that means that all the teams have presented their 2012 challengers. Melbourne isn’t far away, and some people, particularly Ferrari, have a lot to do.

 

BTW: Aurora must be having problems getting rod ends have had inquiries from all over the world for their product recently.

Rush had his problems last week and so did I. Seems like Kenny Wallace is crying the blues about his team cant afford to race, and he wants to race,etc. That they can put a car on the track for only $100,000 per race. So some people came up with a website to race money to help Kenny race.

Where it went wrong is my having the audacity to question whether $100,000 a race for a car that had no chance of winning was the best use of a companies assets. Should have kept my mouth shut, because I got flamed for that one. Justifiably, perhaps so. However I would like to know how big the check was from those that flamed me. Regardless a lesson learned.

Good news is that F1 is about as is the club racing season!
