Only Watching The Battle For First Is Missing The Point

Here’s a shot of one of the looniest on-track battles I’ve seen on a race track in a long, long time. It was from last weekend’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Lime Rock, and these Caymans were going at it like their lives depended on it. Neither car was going for the win.
