    Can’t we merge the Rolex 24 into Speedweeks again? I know more than 2 of Us are cranky over a Spring Daytona 500 in 2015 and 2016, but, I don’t want Football as a crutch or default crutch and maybe have an Actual Winternationals on the First Weekend in February again versus Super Bowl, because even though the Harbaughs are Football Salts, but, we grew salty to them stealing the circus. Food for thought, people.
