In the pantheon of sports car races there is Le Mans, Sebring and everything else. Sebring, though, only comes second in the way that Frazier did to Ali. The party, on the other hand, is second to none. It is one of those somebody-spiked-my-beer-with-a-horse-tranquilizer, "Alice in Wonderland" overload trips. It is absolute, raging, for-the-love-of-God anarchy. It is people with three stories of scaffolding welded on the back of a denuded '75 Ford pickup chassis, with drunk people on each floor, driving at 35 mph. It is 10 guys wandering around for three days in head-to-toe cow costumes with working udders.

  A soundtrack of sports cars stirs the mind like no other
The sights, the sounds and even the smells that abound at a major auto race provide much of the allure for seasoned aficionados and inquisitive newcomers alike. With the passage of time I have forgotten the intimate details of the earliest race meetings I attended as a teenager in the late 1960s, but I can readily recall some of the sensations – the spectacle, the atmosphere and the thrill of watching the competition unfold before my eyes. I was hooked immediately, mesmerized by the colorful cars, the huge, throbbing crowds and the piercing – and varied – sounds of engines straining at the limit.
