Sajeev's Star Turn
June 15th, 2014 6:10 PM Share
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 [s]the Cherokee nation[/s] [s]the town in Texas where he was actually born and raised[/s] 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

Oh yeah. And a C4 corvette dominated day 2, which made me happy.
Horray for Sajeev and Fox body Fords!!! (See Sanjeev, I told you he would win.) "It’s tough work driving a difficult car in ninety-degree weather for any period of time and he did it exceptionally well." I would like to know more about the car. I assume that it has more in common with a production T-bird than a NASCAR T-bird of the same period. What's it like to drive it? That would be an interesting capsule review. :)
