Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach–My Thoughts During the Race

Hello again everyone!  I thought I’d try something new for today’s race.  I’m going to blog my thoughts and reactions as I watch the race.  I make no apologies for having drivers who I like and drivers who I don’t like, so don’t expect me to be objective.  You’re free to disagree, as long as you remain respectful.  Variety is the spice of life, after all.
