LA CAR REPORT—It’s Thanksgiving Night … We’re Sitting In the Bleachers at Ventura Raceway, It’s Cold, We’re Eating Track Dogs, and Fries, Sipping Cold Beer and Choking Down Lukewarm Coffee … Why? What’s the big attraction of an annual auto racing event that causes people to leave the company and comfort of their homes on Thanksgiving evening?

Let’s see if Harold scratched himself and laid down a half-million dollar bid a Miller, or waved across the room at a friend and bought himself an actual life-sized railroad train.
