Jimmie Johnson wins at Daytona

 The Danica 500 (oops we mean the Daytona 500) was won by Jimmie Johnson who started 9th.  Crowd favorite Danica Patrick finished 8th after starting in the pole position.  It was a disappointing day for Matt Kenseth who led for over 80 laps before engine trouble sidelined his car.  In addition to Johnson, Kenseth and Patrick, 11 other drivers were at the front of the pack at various points in the race.  Jeff Gordon snatched the lead from Patrick in just the second lap.  A fiery crash in Saturday's race the day before the 500 showered a portion of the stands with flying pieces of metal and car parts resulting in numerous injuries, but no fatalities among either fans or drivers.


NASCAR at Mid-Ohio?  Yep!  The Nationwide Children's Hospital NASCAR 200 will come to the Mid-Ohio race course outside Lexington, Ohio, on August 17th, 2013.  The 2.4 mile, 15 turn Mid-Ohio course joins two other iconic race courses, Road America in Wisconsin and Watkins Glen in New York State, as parts of the 2013 NASCAR circuit.  Mid-Ohio replaces Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada, in the series.  Ironically, the last time NASCAR raced in Ohio was in 2008 when a truck series event ran at the now defunct Mansfield Motorsports Park.

F-1 Racing

It will take some serious globe trotting to keep up with the 2013 Formula One World Championship series.  From Melbourne, Australia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in March, to Shanghai, China and Sakhir, Bahrain in April.  Then Catalunya, Spain and Monaco, Monte Carlo in May to Montreal, Canada and Silverstone, Great Britain in June.  In July and August the series moves from Germany to Hungary and on to Belgium.  In September and October, Formula One heads to Italy, Singapore, Korea and Japan.  Finally, the U.S. race (in Austin, Texas) comes on November 15th through the 17th, followed by Sao Paulo, Brazil on November 22nd through the 24th.

50 Years ago in Racing

Winning the 1963 Indianapolis 500 was racing legend Parnelli Jones (setting a new track record at 151.15 mph).  Carroll Shelby's Cobra wins the 1963 SCCA A-Production National Championship.  And the Sports Car Club of America began its ground breaking United States Road Racing Championship series in 1963 with an eight race schedule at Daytona Beach, Pensacola, Monterey, Watkins Glen, Pacific Raceway in Washington State, Castle Rock, Road America in Wisconsin and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
