It began with a reflection on my first 500 Mile Race in the year of the 100th running. I never expected to last through the end of the 2016 season, but here we are. May 9 is the 5th anniversary of The Pit Window’s first post. It has been an amazing journey with lots more to come.
This little blog has taken me places I never dreamed of going, and has given me opportunities to meet and talk with people in the racing world I never thought I would have the chance to be within 10 feet of. I have made some great friendships on this journey.
I mainly enjoy writing the historical pieces. “Bump Tales” is my favorite feature, and it will make a brief appearance in the next week or so. I also enjoy the breaking drama, such as qualifications day in 2018 when Pippa Mann and James Hinchcliffe addressed the media after failing to qualify for the race.
So many people have helped and encouraged me to begin this little adventure, and many more who have helped me along the way. I thank all of you who are too numerous to name. I would leave someone out. .
The biggest thanks,however goes to the fans who continue to read The pit Window. I appreciate your support and thank you for reading.
I will be back tomorrow as we get ready for the opening of IMS and GMR Grand Prix week.
