• Ah yes, Memorial Day Sunday! That is the day when I can watch live motor racing from 7:45 a.m. until 10 p.m. with nothing but brief meal/bathroom breaks. Monaco first, then the Indy 500, then the World 600 (now with some corporate name).

    You know, that is more racing in ONE DAY than I used to be able to watch in an entire season when I started watching racing in 1967. Up here, the only source was a Canadian re-broadcast of Wide World of Sports. We would get 1.5 hours of the Daytona 500, usually the week after the event, then possibly 2 hours of the Indy 500, again a week late. And the icing on the cake was that they would show us highlights of the Monaco Grand Prix.

    That was it for the entire season (unless you count the random Figure 8 Jalopy race that usually showed up around September).

    My how things have changed…..
