Day Three (Monday) of the adventures of Steve and Alex.

We left off yesterday with us heading to Hallett, OK. It was a nice evening travel with great weather. We woke this morning to another clear sky day and soon to go to about 90. That means waking up, get gas an ......

Day two of the adventures of Steve and Alex. We left off yesterday with us heading to Gateway Motorsport Park. It is just on the east side of the Mississippi River across from St. Louis. It is primarily an oval track that has a road course through the infield, similar to Daytona. Yesterday was not a perfect run for me and today we had the car checked and we found the ABS system and traction control were on the fritz. And probably no fix till after ......

Yes it is One Lap of America time a gain, but this year with a twist. Alex (my son) and I (Steve) have traded in our cameras for driving helmets. That means we are finally participating in the One Lap of America as participants. What started off 15 years ago as a way to be part of this incredible event as the official photographers, has finally transitioned to being participants. A little history on how we were able to do this. Last year we decided (Alex and mys ......

Running may be a bit of an overstatement. The site has been down for over a week and maybe, just maybe, we may be operational. Now it is time to check a few items and see where we are. I have a feeling we are not quite up to date. But we will fix what we can and then carry on. If you need something before we are 100%, just send me a note. Thanks Steve R. ......

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the U.S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen during the 70's. 1973 then from 1977 through it's final year in 1980. It was a historic time for the Grand Prix, now better know as Formula One, it was a time when you had access to the drivers and could witness wheel to wheel competition from some of the best drivers in the world. We were able to see Mario Andretti. Graham Hill, Sir Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda, James Hunt, Kiki Roseburg and so many mor ......
