Just got back from the Mitty last night after three days of excellent weather and racing. Got to hang out a few times in Michael LeVeque's pits. He and two other of his fellow Corvair teams were working hard to keep the aircooled spirits alive on the track.
They were lapping Road Atlanta at 85MPH average according to my quick math. Nicely done and they placed in the top of the finishing fields. Even better they beat Adam Corolla in a Datsun, in one race by 0.37 seconds.
Check out the results here if you wish:
I promised Mike and teams a few in action photos so I'll get those downloaded in the next couple of evenings and post a few for everyone to admire.
Thanks to our Corvair Racers for keeping it alive on the track.
