Day 2 of Father-Daughter Grand Prix of Houston Weekend dawned rainy and cold, the USF 2000 cars throwing spray into our faces as they skittered past on the soaking track. The rain had mostly stopped by the Pirelli World Challenge race, and gave way to beautiful blue skies and a very comfortable breeze for the […]
