This year the series is in year two of a marriage between ALMS and Grand-Am and by my track side observation there's no annulment in sight. Teams, drivers and fans all seem to be benefiting from the merger.

2014 Concours d'Lemons: The Armpit of Monterey Car Week

The Concours d'Lemons is the unrelenting oil stain to the otherwise polished blue blood events of the peninsula during Monterey Car Week. This is a car show for the downtrodden and destitute vehicles that saw their best days behind them as they rolled off the assembly line. None were exciting to look at then, and time hasn't been kind to them since. But through this egregious event their owners get to drag them off the driveway for ugliest bragging rights.

Is Racing A Sport?

1./spôrt/ noun an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. As car aficionados you can probably guess where we stand with this question. Yes. Racing is a sport. There, we said it (let the debate begin). But don’t be so quick to parse words or negate the effort involved in producing effective results when you compare racing to the school yard games and organized leagues you played growing up. They all require an inner drive to fuel the compulsion to beat the opponent.

Do You Believe in Reincarnation?

It is easy to get caught up in nostalgia, fond memories of what seems like a lifetime ago brought back to the forefront of our minds by the sights, sounds, and smells of a classic car. The leather, the wood, and the sheer simplicity (unless you love German cars) of the inner mechanisms are what attract us to these metal and glass time capsules. Even if we didn't live in our car’s hay-day, when we get in, there’s no doubt in our mind that we could have, and we would have loved every minute of it.
