    NHRA Gainesville Top Fuel Winner Tony Schumacher was in The Freak Nation Sunday night just hours after his win in the Gatornationals. Schumacher was effusive in his praise for his car early in the season. His confidence was strong enough to use qualifying to get some additional test data that he eventually used in his victory runs.

    This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit. My mind wandered a bit watching the Sebring 12 Hours Saturday. Sebring isn't as mind numbing as Daytona or Le Mans. The track is rough and unpredictable producing racing that's rough and unpredictable. One great thing about Sebring is its ability to prepare teams and drivers for the grind at Le Mans in June. When Audi ran in the American Le Mans Series it would come back from the Sebring 12 Hour and rent the track the following week. The idea? Run thirty consecutive hours trying to break it's car, drivers and teams. It was a recipe for winning the world's toughest sports car race at Le Mans three months later. Daytona and Sebring open the season with 36 hours of racing. That's about equal to the rest of the IMSA season combined. The crew at Wayne Taylor Racing should have considerable confidence after winning those first 36 hours at Daytona and Sebring . But after the wide open spaces of Florida comes the street fight at Long Beach next month. Minds can't afford to wander in that cage match. Peace.
