Around the World in 21 Days

Viewers: Lots of folks from across the map since my last check on August 12. Readers from Indonesia to Russia to France to Chile (again!) to Mexico, and all over the US. Welcome!

New Look for a Good Cause: Decided on a 3-column layout so I can pop some banners in easily on the left. Please follow the top one to the Love Hope Strength Foundation and support the climb to base camp on Everest, and the concert that will take place there. You can sponsor a trekker and help in the fight against cancer by making a donation on the foundation’s site.

7 is 9: Davey Hamilton raced in the Classic for supermodifieds at Oswego yesterday in the no. 7 car. He finished ninth. Glad Davey’s racing again and I hope he can get some more sponsorship deals going so we can see him in the IndyCars more frequently. I think his 9th place finish at the Indy 500 with a middle tier team, after having not raced in 6 years, makes him a solid candidate for a ride in the 500 again. But he’d also bring more consistent and higher results throughout a season than some of the drivers who have full-time rides right now, so I’d like to see him get a chance at it. A good scenario for Davey might be a ride share…he drives most or all ovals for a team, and someone else does the road and street courses that would be too hard on Davey’s repaired feet and ankles. I’d sure miss him in the broadcast booth, though…
