A bear riding a t-rex carrying spare engines and subframes, yes.

Love the night shot. Night racing looks like it would be so damn cool.

One of favorite memories: trying to clear the paddock lane of spectators while one of our cars was about to leave the garage, there were people who were just ignoring us. Andrew runs out, arms outstretched and sort of tackles the group of idiots into the side of the tent. The car tears out of the garage and safely moves back out towards the track. Apparently, one of these idiots didn't take kindly to Andrew's efforts to keeping them from getting hit and got into his face. I thought he was going to throw down with Andrew right there.

I've had people try to pick fights while I'm running crowd control two years in a row now. Next year I'm just going to let them get hit.

When Andrew's in full race intensity mode, I think he'd go all Tyson and bite someone's ear off. I wouldn't mess with him.

"Duct tape is used even in the US, go figure."

I predict that when the alien overlords make contact with us, to inform us of our new role as galactic serfs, there will be duct tape holding bits of their ship together.

I'll be there every year until someone tells me to stay away although a few less mechanicals next year would be fine. I don't mind doing just scheduled work...

I had someone call me jewish once; not because of how incredibly cheap i am, but because "of [my] huge nose." He couldn't believe I wasn't really jewish.

In an effort to be more PC, replace jewish with "a rhino."
