Off to PIR


Well here in a few hours I’ll be on my way to the Pacific Northwest. It’s time again for the Champ Car race in Portland, Oregon. I’m pretty excited for it this year. The Champ Car series has been on hold for almost 2 months, just due to the schedule, so the drivers will be ready to go again, and I’m more than ready to see them gun it out again. I was able to see them this year in Las Vegas, and those new cars are incredible.

I’ve been going to that race in Portland with my Dad for 22 years now, it’s a great event. This year the Champ Car series has been pretty unpredictable, with the exception of Sebastian Bourdais, who has been his usual dominant self. Some rookies and second year drivers like Will Power and Robert Doornbos have been very impressive.

Last year’s Portland race featured AJ Allmendinger impressively commanding the race to capture his first career Champ Car win, which ended up being the first of a 3 race winning streak. Now that AJ sold out and went to the dark side of racing, there’s not a favorite underdog to overtake Sebastian. I’m hoping that Graham Rahal will continue to do better each race and begin to have a career like his father, Bobby Rahal.

With however the race goes, I’m plenty excited for the trip. I just quit my job at Blvd Home Furnishings yesterday, and things are good!
