Yale-Type Weighs in on Rallying

Informative little overview of the rallying scene by a molecular biophysics and biochemistry grad student over at the Yale Daily News, talking about the Cannonball and its spiritual descendants. Unfortunately, he refers to Dan Gurney as a "stock car driver," and while yes, Gurney did do a bit of that (so did Andretti) it's a gross mischaracterization of one of the most fascinating and storied men in the history of motorsports. Frequent commenter InfinityReversed has a shot of Gurney's Eagle F1 car on his blog from the recent Autosport International show, and suffice to say, we were very, very jealous of his camera's CCD.
