(Currently looking for good footage of 2003-2005 Grand-Am events. Please help!)
Just an auto mechanic from Ohio(you won't get me to be more specific than that! Bad past experiences have taught me to be careful about how much I reveal about myself) with a passion for racing.
My friends call me D-Boy, feel free to call me this as well if you'd like. There's an interesting story as to why I have a nickname ripped straight from an anime series, but I won't bother with telling it here. But suffice it to say, I was feared in high school, even though I wasn't a bully.
I once raced a 1999 Swift CART chassis in vintage formula racing, but will soon be switching to amateur-level sports prototypes, just as soon as we finish designing and building our D-Sports entry. I made my decision to switch to a cheaper sportscar for racing because some recent issues gave him some financial troubles(minor ones that have mostly been sorted), and running old open-wheel cars is quite expensive. Of course the fact that my doctor was concerned about me overstraining my neck helped make the choice as well.
I have a love for road courses, but I also have nothing against ovals. I love Champ Car, NASCAR, IndyCar, Formula One, MotoGP, Le Mans.... If its got wheels and a motor and goes really fast, I like it.
I've found I have a very unconventional view of the world of racing. I'm always thinking outside of the box on issues and rarely end up taking sides on a matter - I usually have a completely different view the vast majority of people. Even when I do side with one group or another, its rarely to the full extent.
My articles are a way to share my unconventional views.
I want to make you think about certain things in a way you may not have considered.
But most of all, I want my ideas to make people TALK! TALK and come up with even MORE new and greater ideas! Its talking about things and throwing out ideas no one had considered that results in the BEST ideas!
I don't expect my ideas to change the world. But if I can make people think, even just simple fans... I'm happy.
Now sit back, enjoy the articles, and open your mind to my abnormal thoughts.
PLEASE Read this story on a Lions and Rams Legend :
Wayne Taylor and Max Angelelli will be giving a telephone press conference on Wed. 7/29 at 2 p.m. EST.
I have gained access through NASCAR Media.
If you want the info...email me at: ljburgess at mac dot com.
I'll read up on hat some more but I think Indycar is loosening up so the Panoz rmor makes sense,
bounce me an email please: ljburgess at mac dot com
Hear the news? The FIA and FOTA are all hugs now apparently, and Max Mosely won't be coming back. F1's been saved!
More shameless self-promotion.
While every series seems to have issues the IRC continues to get better.
wrote a piece which I tried to make my master piece. Could you please cheack it out. Don't be scared of telling me if it is bad
Did my first slide show today. It is supposed to be humor. Tell me if you like it
My sources tell me that the "Ferrari" engine is really the Maserati engine that was in development a few years ago. I was financed privately as is this new Ferrari Engine. Remember that G/A engines are extremely restricted and are way down on potential horsepower. What they are probably developing is mileage.
