    Not so fast there Sheriff, remember Brett races a Mazda and they pay contingency money.

    How much is the contingency money? I think I won $500 once, for the entire season. Not enough for a set of tires . . .

    My race car has 36,000 race track miles on it. It started life from the dealership as a race car. It will be reborn next month with its sixth engine since birth.

    So 7200 miles per engine on average.
    What kind of track mileage per engine did you get on your last 3 engines, Zhong? (picked 3 as an arbitrary number)

    As soon as you tell me how much you paid for your car. I came in second in points. That's $1,000.

    Different Perspectives:

    Brundle: I do this for fun and with a certain passion, so if I win back a couple of bucks it's just a little icing on my enjoyment cake.

    Sheriff: I suck the joy out of everything in life by evaluating everything in life on a dollars and cents basis. Plus my 'roids are killing me and I need to share.

    Bree -

    You're a sucker. First you get all tough and refuse to answer my question. Then you immediately answer my question even though I will never answer yours. Are you interested in purchasing a bridge I own in Brooklyn, New York?

    Some people really know how to suck the joy out of TrackHQ...

    That being said... good luck with the 2015 season Brett!
    Nothing quite as enjoyable as turning a wheel on the racetrack.

    Maybe we'll get to cross paths again at Buttonwillow?
    Burgoon's videos got me thinking it's time to get back down "south"!
