L&M Porsche: Untold Story of Can Am's Famous Car
  by Stephen Cox - Part 5 of 7, The Turning Point
With what appeared to be a fully developed, dominant racecar, Porsche was ready for their public unveiling. They chose the third race of the season at Watkins Glen as their moment of truth. After all, everything seemed perfect. The teething problems with the L&M Porsche's turbocharger dump valve at Mosport surely wouldn't happen again. The loss of the magnesium car didn't seem to be as bad a setback as expected. The standard 917/10-003 was clearly superior to McLaren's new M20.
Barbosa, Fittipaldi engineer dominating win
  in Brickyard Grand Prix
Stretching fuel mileage to the absolute limit, Joao Barbosa won Friday’s Brickyard Grand Prix TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race in convincing fashion, driving the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP to a 48.964-second victory over Scott Pruett, who had to settle for second place in the marquee sports car event for the third straight year.

James Garner delivered the 'definitive' Racing Movie
  by Dave Grayson
It was truly sad to learn of the July 19th passing of actor James Garner. According to reports, Garner passed away due to natural causes in his Brentwood-California home at the age of 86. He leaves us with a legacy of television and film work that spanned a career lasting nearly six decades. The television stand outs on his resume includes "Maverick" from the 1950's and "The Rockford Files" which ran for six seasons in the 1970's. He also portrayed major roles in over fifty feature films.

Kids don't care about cars anymore
  by Bob Lefsetz
You mean I need a bigger engine and a swoopy style to get laid? I just go on Tinder! Welcome to the baby boomer nightmare, wherein everything they’ve held near and dear becomes irrelevant. Like automobiles. Cars are a utility. So long Ferrari. So long Aston Martin. So long the SUV. Do you think kids want to own a big box with terrible mileage just like their parents drive? Just because cars have lasted a century, that does not mean they're here to stay, that does not mean they're not ripe for disruption. Cars are the newspapers of today. Something oldsters can't live without and youngsters can.
Scenes from Watkins Glen - Sunday
  by Adriano Manocchia
In a six-hour TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race that came down to the wire, Richard Westbrook was in the right place at the right time. Westbrook drove his Corvette DP past Alex Brundle in Turn 4 at Watkins Glen International after a late-race caution wiped out Brundle's sizable lead. He then led the final five laps for a 0.877-second victory in the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen. Adriano Manocchia was there to cover all the action and filed these 109 photos
Westbrook and Valiante win Six Hours of Watkins Glen
  Brundle: "He's just driven past me - this isn't racing."
A late-race restart of United SportsCar's Watkins Glen Six Hours gave the Daytona DPs, which are favored by the IMSA rules, a huge advantage, as the Spirit of Daytona Corvette DP's straight-line speed passed the LMP2 OAK Morgan of polesitter Alex Brundle. The No. 90 Corvette DP powered past Brundle’s OAK Racing Morgan-Nissan on the second-to-final restart with 12 minutes to go.
Scenes from Watkins Glen - Saturday
  by Adriano Manocchia
Alex Brundle had only seven laps of practice during his first visit to Watkins Glen International prior to qualifying for Sunday's Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen. That's all the second-generation British driver needed to get the pole position. Brundle tackled the 3.4-mile course and turned the fastest lap of Saturday's 15-minute session to capture the TOTAL Pole Award. Adriano Manocchia was there to cover all the action and filed these 87 photos
