If speeds were limited to 60Mph, I'd say enter an M1A1 Tank. ;)

They are fuel limited too. This year 1 tank full has to last the full race.

Of course I don't know the exact range of an M1A1 Abrams Battle Tank is, But It does weigh about 60 Tons(short). :D Pretty crushing hardware and all to carry a 120mm gun.

M1A1, isn't that a government contract? I bet about 1 mile range if it is. Gotta keep Haliburton in business!

I don't think Haliburton has anything to do with the Abrams Tank, As General Dynamics makes the M1-M1A2 Tank. And It seems I was wrong on the speed, Must have been the speed run by an early prototype, 42-45 on road and about 30 Mph off road, 500 gallon fuel supply, This tank eats Russian Tanks for Breakfast, It loves T-72 and older Tanks as Saddam had plenty of them and the Abrams was takin them out 3 miles away and the Iraqi gunners couldn't see who or where the shots were coming from as their systems could only see about 1 mile away. Also It seems the Tanks have gotten heavier since they were 1st made, Their now around 67 short tons.

At the risk of the mods displeasure for hijacking; Haliburton, would get the contract to supply and transport the fuel used by the tanks. [Any further discussion about tanks belongs elsewhere.]

Did see some dirt track action today on TV. Trucks and buggies on the same track.

Chili Bowl? Never heard of that one. Plus when did Australia, New Zealand and Canada become states. Welcome to the Union you Kanuks, Kiwi's and Auzzies.

Ahh, so this thread really is just about F1 and not car racing in general?

And, "as well as" means "in addition to", not "including". Maybe you should read instead of mocking things you know nothing about. I'm sure glad I didn't bring up Danica Patrick running a partial ARCA and Nationwide series this year in addition to the full IRL schedule.

I will now leave you all to your F1 fantasy and no longer try to educate in other forms of racing.

Hold your horses Labbie. Just trying to bring out a smile or two. We have talked about other races. In fact I never raced F1. The best I ever did was a 3rd in the Baja 1000. That's a long way from Monza. And as for the play on words, I'm a lawyer. I know how to twist words for fun and profit.

Which team will she be racing for?

Are they going to allow her to race in Indy Cars as well as Nascar in the same season?

She’ll be driving for Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the ARCA and Nationwide series before and after her commitments for the IndyCar Series are completed.
