Good Races and Reads

I watch precisely one car race a year, the Indy 500. Needless to say, it’s happening right now, and I’m loving the Marco Andretti story. Three generations! Two in the same race! One spot in front of his father (as of 12:26pm Pacific)! And did I mention he’s a 19 year old rookie?
