Late Saturday update from Saroja direct from Daytona

What a thrill to spend a day at Daytona International Speedway, and even more of a thrill for those lucky drivers who got lots of track time, using the Rolex Course!

The BF Goodrich Hot Lap Challenge saw cars on track at 1:00, when Jimi Day led the competitors on orientation laps in his '69 AMX. Soon after, the Expert group headed out, and started what would be driving into the night...

Jet Hot High Performance Coatings provided five instructors who know this track inside and out. The got to see quite a bit of track time from the less comfortable seat! The Red Line Oil camera car was a beautiful Porsche, expertly driven by Trans Am Champion Simon Gregg.

Watching races at this track on TV is fun, but being here as the sun goes down and the temperatures cool, hearing the cars on track into the night is something special. Seeing our friends with their cars in the same garages that housed some of the biggest names in mortorsports ... this is an event of a lifetime! I spent a little time playing "fan", peering through the windows into the garages, feeling proud of all the competitors here.

Next will be the fast-paced RideTech Autocross and Wilwood Speed Stop Challenge. The Action Continues!

Just got back in from my second day at Daytona...What a blast just being there and from the grins I saw on the driver's faces...they are having even more fun.

I took a bunch of pictures, some of which can be seen here.
