Day 2 at American Le Mans Series at Virginia International Raceway and I was pretty sure I could hear the angry roar of race machines in my head from the previous day’s race practice. But this day is no day to fret because the VIR 240 Race starts at 2:30 pm to last for 4 straight hours. It was streamed live with a coverage available on ESPN. Our morning was spent stalking race drivers and crews at their pit stations. It was super cool to get up close and personal. We were very lucky to be able to chat with Beth Chryst, sponsored by beatbyagirl.org, who made me truly proud as a woman to see her in the race track. We also had a warm conversation with Miles Maroney and his dad who revealed that Miles started racing at age 4!
This 9th round of the race was won by the insanely fast Muscle Milk Pickett Racing pair of Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf.
All these cars are too fast and our camera had a hard time coping with their speed. This is my only decent photo of Muscle Milk P1, the winner of American Le Mans Series 9th round, taken at the Oak Tree Hill.
And just in case you are wondering how these cars look when stripped naked, here:
