Will Power wins at Sonoma

Sunday, August 28th, 2011
Another Australian victory, and this time I was there to see it! The first repeat winner since the series started running at Infineon Raceway in 2005. This is the second time I’ve seen this race at Sonoma. All the crashing, fights and action occurred in New Hampshire last weekend but this was a great day.

Marcos Ambrose wins at Watkins Glen

A great year to be an Australian racing fan. Mark Webber is holding second place right now in the Formula One standings, and Marcos Ambrose, so often the bridesmaid, finally wins one in NASCAR’s top rung of competition. Bonus, incredible racing every lap, wild wrecks, and a fist fight reminiscent of the pre-2000 days of NASCAR before the big networks starting broadcasting it!
