The Race

Last weekend, we spent some time at Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey, CA. Dan's Acura NSX car club was invited to the race by the American LeMans team because this is Acura's first year racing in this series. So, about 100 guys came with their NSX's.

If you're like me, you're wondering, "what is the American LeMans race?" Well, let me give you the short version. It's basically an upscale car race. Race teams include Ferrari, Porsche, Corvette, Panoz, Audi and now Acura. The President of the LeMans association, gave some opening remarks to us (in the hospitality tent) before the race. I love how he described it. He said, "If NASCAR is the Walmart of the racing world, LeMans is the Nordstroms."

We were asked to do a parade lap on the track before the race. We also go to visit the Pit.
