    I watched the race on my DVR and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the lack of full-course yellows. These are a pet peeve of mine as road course racing should not have such an artificial rule to...

    I deleted the choices about which I had no opinion, but I was very pleased to see Red Sun included and was wondering how anyone could see Excalibur as a good movie. My wife and I saw the tape years...
