We caught up with the most epic beard in the Sebring paddock at Watkins Glen, where the now internet-famous CJ Wilson Racing crew man was hammering on the team’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Mazda MX-5. As today is World Beard Day, here are a few MX-5 pics for your enjoyment.


Here is The Beard in his natural habitat, wrenching on the ST-class Mazda.

I’m admittedly skeptical of this site’s overwhelming love for the Miata, but even I have to admit: it’s good in racecar form. Looks good. Drives well. Bunny and I approve of this car.


They’re lucky rabbits can’t reach the pedals.


Here’s the car running in better weather at Lime Rock. Good car? Yes. Good car.

Go forth, bearded dudes of Jalopnik. Stroke your beards in deep thought. Keep stuffing them into nomex balaclavas to avoid the ire of track marshals. They’re warm now, but come this winter, you’ll appreciate the extra layer like it’s a fuzzy hug permanently attached to your face. And keep on beardin’ on.


Happy World Beard Day!
