As cool as many of the modern sports racing, GT and formula cars are there was something pleasant about car racing before the big bucks took over. Racers hauled their vehicles to the track towed behind a pickup truck, pit crew wore sandals and spectators stood close to the track where it was loud and dangerous.

Sure, it’s definitely a little safer now but it just isn’t the same. Time to get rid of the car to pit radios and fancy computers! Move it Al… you’re too slow!
