Racing, the Zoom-Zoom way

Sunday, October 26th, 2008

Edmunds.com has a nice article about autocrosser-turned-club racer-turned pro racer Jason Saini, and about Mazda’s motorsports program. Racing in Spec Miata this year has given me great appreciation for Mazda’s support of racing at all levels.

There’s already been far too much already said about the economy so I won’t add to it especially given my relatively shallow understanding of the whole thing.
