The inaugural season of the “World Racing League”, and the final season of operations at soon-to-be-McMansion-ized Texas World Speedway, experienced a little celebrity excitement Saturday evening when our own Sajeev Mehta took the checkered flag in an AMC-liveried Thunderbird.
Jeeves himself will be writing up the race weekend for your consumption in the near future, but as his editor and teammate I feel compelled to call him out for his solid work in support of the team. We had two mechanicals and one wreck this weekend, meaning that of our four chances to see a checkered flag (two cars, two days) only one flag was actually seen, and that was thanks to our man from
the Cherokee nation the town in Texas where he was actually born and raised India. It’s tough work driving a difficult car in ninety-degree weather for any period of time and he did it exceptionally well. I leave you with this quote:
“Correr, competir, eu levo isso no meu sangue. É parte de mim. É parte da minha vida.” — Sajeev Mehta
