    TrackHQ: So if you had to choose one, an S2000 or a Miata, which would you pick?
    Boris Said: S2000

    Excellent interview.

    I think he was referring to Sports 2000 car and not a Honda S2000 when you asked him "Miata or S2000." He said they had a racing series way back when he was doing Corvette Challenge. Im not aware of any S2000 racing series.

    thanks a ton for doing this, what an awesome read. I hate to admit this but I may have gained some new respect for the left turn mafia after this interview.

    Thanks Brett, great job on the interview. Hopefully we can get other interviews from other pro racers as trackHQ goes viral. I wonder how we could approach Rubens Barachello now that he's racing here.

    In case you have never seen it, Speed Channel had great show called "Seat Swap" where Tony Stewart and Lewis Hamilton both drive a Mclaren F1 and and a Nascar race car at Watkins Glenn. They also repeat this show from time to time.

    It was a rainy day, so the last guy in each car won (as the track dried out). So, Tony beat Lewis's time in the McLaren and vice versa. Their undisguised fun is totally infectious.

    They were both so cool - especially Tony Steward who, if I remember, said it may have been the best day of his life. He drove the F1 real hard and was completely blown away by its braking.

    Set your DVR. It's a classic.

    That seems like a pretty obvious choice to me. Chuck Norris must be about 90 years old now.

    Chuck was here before God. And he will be here after God. He sidekicks time and backhands death.
