    Default TrackHQ.com to Interview Boris Said

    Believe it or not, I just spoke with Boris Said, who agreed to do a Q&A interview with TrackHQ.com Monday morning at 10 a.m. I will record the interview, transcribe the tape, then post the transcript of it here on the site.

    I am writing a list of questions right now, but if there is anything you would like to ask him, post your questions on this thread. Please keep your questions relevant to racing, to things we all can learn from. This is an opportunity to ask an accomplished pro driver some penetrating questions. Let's have them.

    Are driving/racing schools worth the money? If so, which school do you recommend?
    How many days of the year do you spend driving on a track?
    White bread or wheat?
    Describe the harriest moment you can recall. Where did it happen? What were you driving?

    It's "hairiest" and yes, that's a good question. The one about white or wheat bread, not so much.

    Debacle, really.

    I would like to know how he views NASCAR as it tries to continually appeal to other markets outside the US. Will they implement enough changes to be successful?

    What projects does he have coming down the pipe? Will we see him in V8 Supercars?

    My question: We club race against friends which is very different that racing at the pro level. We like to talk smack to each other, race hard and clean but always remain friends at the end of the day. Do you have or can you share any tricks either "on track" or "in the paddock" that you use to play friendly mind games with your opponants before a race?
