I don’t want anyone to confuse me with an actual reporter, but I am a decades long race fan, with a special fondness for IndyCar. You know those aerodynamic beauties that race in the Indianapolis 500 every Memorial Day Weekend. Well, they also race all around the country and since the 2016 Labor Day weekend, they have returned to race at one of the best road race circuits in the world, Watkins Glen International Speedway in Watkins Glen, NY.
Over what is truly three very busy days of events, I at least took in the activities this past Saturday and Sunday. Besides the IndyCar race itself, known more formally as the IndyCar Grand Prix at the Glen, there were practice sessions, qualifying, and races for 6 additional racing divisions. 5 of these divisions are viewed as stepping stones to prepare some for an eventual ride with an IndyCar team, and for others, to just get into a competitive race series for the fun and thrill of it. At least as long as their budgets will allow.
