That is so wrong. Rudy does the best he can and enjoys racing. 

 

I'd say there was nothing wrong with the two 1.6's in the top 10 at Mid Ohio last weekend. Sommers did well at COTA earlier in the year, a bit of controversy included. 

 

Whoa there, Colonel Panic, I have no idea who Rudy is, but it was the only 1.6 in the field. The "joke" is only at the 1.6's expense.  Weren't you just yelling at the Millennials for being all uptight and snowflaky??? :)

Did I just pay $400 for a test day that has only 2 sessions on track?!  WTF?  Is this normal?

Everybody do yourselves a favor and stop by the BBQ shack at turn 3. As I understand it, the only way to win this weekend is to get a big pile of brisket for lunch. I don't make the rules...

For real though, awesome BBQ!! Check them out! Oh...and the winner will come out of Advanced Autosports. Like I said...I don't make the rules.

If you're looking for good eats for dinner, we Wisconsinites sure have figured out how to cook our cows. The Tenderloin Shiraz at Lake Street Cafe in downtown Elkhart Lake is mouth watering, and the Prime Rib at Schwarz's Supper Club in St. Anna (17 mins northwest from RA) is perfection!

If meat isn't what you're looking for, Lola's on the Lake at the Osthoff Resort always has good food, or if you're looking for something simple like Pizza, O'Malleys in downtown Plymouth just south of the track has very good pizza, and probably the best Hawaiian Pizza I've ever had. And yes, I like pineapple on pizza, so I hope that doesn't influence someone's decision to bump draft me or not on track.

I have a hard time passing up the cornbread at brown Baer

Sanford, next time you have a minute or several minutes (cause your going to decide you need MORE MKE HOOD ribs) when passing to the MKE airport, we'll stop in the HOOD for some tasty ribs of your choice and your mind will be changed forever. :yep: Finger liken good.

Sean, one of the owners of the shack is straight from Texas. Always a great conversation to go with the food.  ;)

Some of the best BBQ I have ever had was in Chicago.  Smoque BBQ on N. Pulaski.  I make a point of hitting every towns top rated BBQ place, usually its some Texan that transplanted and started selling BBQ in their new town.

Since everyone is so into BBQ, I'll be sure to bring some in my car during the race for everyone behind me to smell :)

This includes BBQ places in far-off foreign lands. Had some great BBQ in Auckland...from a Texas transplant.

OTOH, tacos not so much.
