Yea, it's a bit early in the week with Bristol ending just 13 or so hours ago but I'm in a rather rotten mood today and I need to do something to distract myself by making this here thread. So gents and gentettes, I bring you some laps at Fontana in the Spring:
*fighter jets have been released from Nellis Air Force Base to intercept an unidentified flying object in the shape of Kyle Busch's ego.
Where is this Fontana thingway?
Well somewhere in SoCal and in my mind in a magical place with Laguna Seca and Sonoma all close together forming an esoteric triangle of North American racing heritage.
I always thought that Fontana is in Florida. Weird.

Memories from Fontanas of the past:
I guess you can say that I do miss them Indys. *sigh* Let's not get into the emotional cesspool that is other form of Motorsport and focus on the boogeddies.
I think it's fair to say that you can avoid saying hello and make eye contact with the likes of the Loganos of the world without it being perceived as some form of antisocial behavior.
Kyle rendered our souls last year with his quite charismatic win here and I truly Hope to do the same just so that Del can switch that mind disemboweling avatar of his. I have not slept since he changed it.
