Its business as usual despite Dan's (Wheldon) untimely passing and the withdrawal of Newman/Haas from IndyCar. Just seen about John Force (4 time 'all america')from Funny Car & Dragster, its very interesting and Crash.Net ought to have a Dragster Racing Page. Ive seen drag racing at Santa Pod in UK, its mental- mind blowing. Nothing (and I mean NOTHING) compares to any other motorsport

I can't believe the GT winners of the Rolex series get a nod and the GT winners of the ALMS don't even figure at all.

But the ALMS has arguably the higher caliber GT class pretty much anywhere.

@ David Chaste:-

GT Rolex Series seems to be a 'premier series' (like premier league football) so perhaps with more money involved - gets the nod (snobbish nob) rather than ALMS. That's my reckoning, much as I dislike it... Like F1, those with most money (pay drivers) get the car, while those with caliber and skill but no money get no car.
