Oval racing – a very different beast indeed, yet a whole new challenge. This was my first foray on the “straight….straight, left & repeat.” I had tested on a 5/8 mile oval in November at Memphis International Raceway. We did two days there and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thanks to everyone who read Part I. I hope you enjoyed it and are looking forward to reading this next chapter.
St. Pete is one of my favourite tracks. For a street circuit it is so smooth, something which is uncommon.
