This was a research paper written for my capstone in Economics, and remains the only paper I've ever been proud of. It might be a little thick, but I thought I'd post it seeing its pertinence. » 5/06/14 5:12pm 5/06/14 5:12pm

How To Make IndyCar A Great Racing Series Again

IndyCar is boring; there, I said it. The oval-hazed pseudo Formula 1 racing series' lack of chassis originality between teams, limited North American scope, and lack of relevance towards absolutely anyone does not help it overcome the I'm-an-open-wheel-version-of-NASCAR stigma, but instead of complaining, let's fix it. » 3/23/14 11:59am 3/23/14 11:59am

Show Us The Ugliest Formula 1 Chassis

Show Us The Best Driving Road You've Ever Found

There you were, driving somewhere as usual, when suddenly the road starts to turn. Left, Right, crest, dip, turn and twist.
