    Ron,

    Yes it was an excellent time and a great place to race! Had a nice talk with Andre (who was helping push the Essex Wire car into the truck) after the race. If you err get the chance to go to Watkins Glen in early September, the US Vintage Grand Prix is something to witness. You would not believe the cars that show up there. I will be driving at that race until they have to use a lift to place me in the car

    Just lay on the gurney and have the car tow you.

    Jim,

    When I was in the 8th grade 187 years ago my Father was in charge of part of the St. Lawrence Seaway building and I got to go by there but was way to young and broke to do anything but look. I have always enjoyed watching any race there that is on TV. Did you get your car out on the track and if so are there any videos that show you running?

    Ron,

    I have two in car videos on youtube and there is another video that has a couple shots of my car on the trac.

    My videos are at:

    The other video's link is:

    If those links do not work, just search Watkins Glen Vintage Grand Prix 2017 and you will find them.

    Jim,

    The first one worked great but the others said there was no such channel. I will do the search after while but I enjoyed this one that worked.

    Ron is lying about his age again. We all know he's older than that.

    Ron,

    Search Watkins Glen Vintage Grand Prix 2017 video 2 for the second video.

    the other one is titled Watkins Glen Vintage Race 2017 and was made by Throttled TV. It is a compilation of video from a variety of races and there are a couple of passing shots of me driving. It is the only red cobra on the track.
