Hey-y-y-y-y-y, Ab-b-b-b-b-bott!!

For those old enough to recall, I’m sure you remember some of those Bud Abbott and Lou Costello comedies being pure classic entertainment.

Pretty much total domination, eh?

He’s led a lot, but not ‘that’ much

Seven years ago I thought it might be interesting to start keeping track of feature laps run and led. It has been. Today we’re just dealing with the feature laps “led” part of that equation. For me, the biggest surprise was not the drivers who finished among the leaders in laps led, but how few […]
