We made it back to Nashville late Monday night after flying for what seemed like all day—hate those long layovers in boring airports. I won’t get into the airport we had a layover in, because it caused some sparks on Facebook. My understanding is that the airport in question is undergoing radical improvements, and that is all I’m going to say.

Another trip to Road America is in the books, and just like the previous three – this one did not disappoint. I realize that sometimes Susan and I go overboard in our raves about this track (I say “this” because we are still sitting in the Media Center as I type this), so I’ll try to keep the raves to a minimum.

So, I promised that Susan would have a post up here early this afternoon. I’d like to say it was her fault for not finishing it up, but we never came back into the Media Center after the IndyCar practice at 11:00. As soon as it was done, we went to one of my favorite concession stands – the one that overlooks Hurry Downs – and got a beer and a brat for lunch and sat there watching the US F2000 race going on at the bottom of the hill.

Good morning from another beautiful day at Road America! It’s pretty much a carbon-copy of the weather we had yesterday, except it’s slightly warmer. It is currently 66-degrees, with an expected high of 73. The only negative is what is predicted for Sunday – a 90% chance of thunderstorms. I keep thinking back to the Race Day forecast for Indianapolis, and how it was a certainty that the race would be rained out. Let’s hope the weatherman is wrong this weekend also.

The first two practices at Road America are in the books. It’s always hard to tell if a Friday practice is indicative of what we will see in qualifying and the race, or if it is a case of teams sorting out their cars and not really out to show speed.
