The Weekend of Acronym Racing

The workweek is complete. The rain has temporarily abated. My supplies are assembled. It’s time for race weekend, sports fans! The American Le Mans Series (ALMS) and FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) are bringing an alphabet soup of auto racing to Circuit of the Americas (COTA) this weekend. I admit I am having to do […]
