Sharp Curve Ahead
  by Brian C. Mackey
It's that time of year again.  You know, the changing fall colors, the cooling air, pumpkins and most of all, we're deep in the sponsor hunting season of the fourth quarter.  In reality, the search for sponsors is all year long, but this time of year is reserved for the most concentrated effort.  But just like the seasons seem to be a little out of kilter, in recent years so has the sponsorship story. I used to think motorsports was at a crossroads.  I don't think that way anymore.

On any given Sunday..13 years ago today
  by Stephen Cox
September 23, 2001 was a bright, beautiful Sunday at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit's 2-mile road course just outside of Tulsa. I was sitting on the second floor of the scoring tower finishing a breaded tenderloin sandwich with extra pickle trying desperately to figure a way to beat Larry Childs. Larry was a truly great driver in addition to being a genuinely nice guy. I was driving Jeff Saulsberry's well-prepared Datsun 240Z in the GT-2 class. To add insult to injury, Larry's team also fielded a 240Z, meaning that he was essentially beating me with my own car.
