IndyStar.com | Oct. 15: On 33 cars and 33 miners | Ask the Expert …
I just stumbled upon a good post posted earlier today, by Curt Cavin, over on Ask the Expert: IRL entitled IndyStar.com | Oct. 15: On 33 cars and 33 miners | Ask the Expert … that I encourage everyone to read. Here’s a couple of little extracts to whet your appetites!
Question: The photos of the cars on the grid were awesome, and without saying a word I think explains the love affair people have with the Indy 500. The history and tradition is a living, breathing thing â¦ not like the contrived things we sometimes see elsewhere. I remember on race day in 1989 they did a lap in the Boyle Special to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Wilbur Shawâs win, and that was one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Having the opportunity to see historic cars on the track on race day next year will be an absolute thrill to those that appreciate the history of the event. And maybe even to a lot of people who donât. I hope they can locate more of the missing cars.
Now then, reading Curt Cavin’s article started me off thinking so I did a google search for some other articles on the subject and found some more nicearticles! i.e. Practice, practice, practice? posted last week, by Scott Dixon, on CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA MUSICIANS:
Imagine the bewilderment on the faces of a hotels’ housekeeping staff when, prepared to clean the rooms, they walk down the hallway and see a row of “Do Not Disturb” signs, accompanied by a cacophony of metronomes, scales, arpeggios, symphonies, overtures, and concertos. It’s often said that playing an instrument is like paddling upstream: if you’re not constantly working to move forward, then you’re actually moving backward. On a two-week tour across many different countries and time-zones, practicing to stay in shape on your instrument can feel like paddling up a waterfall. Here are a few shots of Cleveland Orchestra Musicians practicing when and where they can on tour: Scott Dixon practices backstage (photo by Linnea Nereim) Hans Clebsch at the Abbey of St. Florian (photo by Linnea Nereim) Principal Trombone Massimo La Rosa visualizes a passage of music (photo by Linnea Nereim) Tubist Yasu Sugiyama warms up at the St.
Finally, another fantastic post on the subject came from John Sturbin on Racin’ Today posted yesterday and entitled Racin' Today » Ganassi Won't Mess With Winning Formula which is also certainly worth a look!
Again, having said that, it’s not something …it’s not something that’s going to make or break our organization. If our organization looks exactly the same a year from now as it does today, it won’t bother me a bit.” Rahal, the 21-year-old son of 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Rahal, is positioned to end his nomadic career with a team TBD. Rahal, IndyCar’s youngest race-winner, announced at HMS that he has secured a two-year primary sponsorship/spokesperson deal with TBC Retail Group.
” Ganassi: “He was. That’s true. I stand corrected, that’s true.” Franchitti said part of that perception has to do with driving styles.
