[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]1. We had an exciting finish last week with fuel mileage strategy really shaking things up. What do you think lead to the long green flag runs and how can we keep seeing reduced cautions?[/font]
I haven't gotten a chance to watch the race in full so I can't answer 100% accurately, but I believe tracks like Las Vegas make races go much smoother. There's more than 1 line to run so you don't have 16 cars battling for that 1 certain line.

Well. In season 1, the week leading up to Phoenix left me with little confidence heading into the races. I didn't see myself in the top 5 unless it was gifted to me. After the race started, I was happy riding around 6-8th until about halfway through the race when the line finally clicked for me. I wound up finishing 1st with a strong car. With that said I'm excited for this track, I've topped my record lap there in practice many times this week and I feel stronger than last season there. I love the uniqueness of this track, not everyone can figure it out.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Football is my #1 sport. When football season comes around, I'm glued to that tv from 1pm to bedtime lol. I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life and have always been a die hard patriots, celtics, and Red Sox fan(I'm spoiled). I like the bruins but hockey in general has gone downhill to me. I'm a firm believer that if you have a "favorite" team and a "my next favorite" team, then you really don't have a team at all and you are pure bandwagon! Lol[/font]
