I am surprised to see no mention of RB's recent crash and injuries at the Summer Series final weekend this past week at Rd Atlanta. Apparently while testing the series cars he had a brake failure and went off in turn one and made significant contact with the tire wall. He suffered some injuries to his knee and back. Todd Snyder has started a Go Fund Me drive to help raise money for RB and his family while he will not be able to work due to his injuries. You can find a link here; https://www.gofundme.com/xabdnst8

I don't have the words to express how gutted I am about Justin Wilson.
I am praying for Justin's family and younger brother Stefan, whom I've worked with in the USF2000 paddock over the last few years.
The tributes on Twitter have been something to behold. Hopefully you are following the usual channels and reading more from the other drivers in IndyCar and the supporting series. Stefan himself posted an amazing tweet about hoping to be half the man his brother was. Amen, brother. Justin was a class act.
Longer tributes can be found at www.racer.com, and of course, many other racing websites and blogs.
Cabana #5 will be up and running this Saturday for the Tudor fun at LRP.

Phineas T. J. Craige returned to Lime Rock Park for the first time in two years to run in the Lime Rock Driver's Club spec Miata race on Saturday.
Working off the rust in practice Jim's pace was good but not quite up to that of Dan Moen or Anthony Geraci. Jim qualified 3rd ahead of John Posey who was driving a 1.6 liter ssm Miata while Jim, Don and Anthony were in newer heavier 1.8 liter sm Miata's.
At the start Jim held 3rd for 2 laps until John Posey passed him on lap 3. They traded P3 a few times until Jim pulled away as John's older tires started to fade. Jim put his head down and spent the next ten laps closing the gap to Dan Moen in P2. It took a couple more laps for Jim to get around Dan and then set his sites on Anthony. With the laps winding down it didn't look like there would be enough time to catch the leader but all the rust fell away and Jim narrowed the gap with brilliant late braking into big bend on the white flag lap putting him on...
