As much as I love drag racing, from a drivers standpoint I always thought road courses would be so much more fun. We're always worried about getting engines and drivetrains to last for a mere seconds, altogether different than getting them to last for many minutes, or even hours!
Sure would make me nervouse taking an original Cobra out on the track with other drivers though. That 289 car would be the perfect screamer around there.
