A few years ago the late Mike Stephens, then owner of the Hallett Motor Racing Circuit in Oklahoma, helped me find a ride in an open cockpit Toyota World Sports Racer. I had no experience in the type and missed the podium in consecutive races.

Brian Vickers is back. Again. After being forced out of NASCAR racing for the third time with a major medical issue, Vickers has returned to Michael Waltrip Racing after a successful heart surgery. I remember Brian well from his days in the Hooters ProCup Stock Car Series, where I was SPEED's pit reporter for nine years.

They should be able to see the driver's hands struggle on the steering wheel to maintain control. They should be able to see all, or at least most, of the race track. This combination has drawn crowds to race tracks for over a century.
