May 4th - Saturday afternoon heading to Ohio (400 miles) Well here we are again, on the road doing the One Lap of America. Alex and I are returning this year to sort of revenge last year’s less than stellar run at the One Lap.

Something that is not uncommon for the folks that have prepared these particular cars for ......

Short and not so sweet…We are done – out – finito – fertig - fine - Kapoot. We arrived early at High Plains Speedway in Colorado, and walked the track. It is an incredible track with a lot of elevation changes and fast straights. We talked to a few One Lappers who use this track often and got some great tips on how to run the track. Then it was my time to run the morning session. Cool weather was great also. The recon ......
