25 Hours of Thunderhill, A Rum Diary

For Krider Racing, the 2012 running of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill started with rum and ended with rum.

What is Behind Door Number Thirty-Eight?

Most Speed Sport Life readers consider themselves car aficionados. Sure, you can tell the difference between a 1970 and 1971 Chevelle from a mile away (count the headlights, folks). But can you tell what type of car the Krider Racing / Speed Sport Life ChumpCar World Series entry is just from this shot of the driver’s door?

The first ChumpCar World Series race of 2010 is coming up, January 9-10, 2010, at Infineon Raceway. Speed Sport Life will be doing live coverage and updates from the California event.

So, take your best shot at guessing the make and model of the car. Here’s a hint, it’s not a Chevelle.
