    What does an orange visor do for you?

    Something about overcast lighting conditions?

    There were some minor, incidental differences among the cars, as you would expect when trying to equalize 20 cars, but the process was as methodical as can be. Each driver picked their car based mostly on how well they fit into it.

    I was there for the whole thing, from the moment the cars arrived on carriers from Atlanta on Wednesday to the checkered flag on Sunday. It was a great event, and I'm glad I was there to cover it for Speed News.

    Jeremy's RR wheel bearing falling apart was somewhat less than ideal...

    Check the video I linked. The car loses traction in time with the bearing noises while turning left.
