arrived in the mail today


A couple interesting motorsport items with Canadian connections.

First, John Cordts' short book Blood, Sweat and Turnips.

Second, The Alternate is the beginning installment on The Emory Collins Story, as told to Earl Fabritz.

Haven't read much of either yet so I can't comment. But both hold subjects are of interest to me. Cordts from a photo way back when at a rainy Laguna Seca where he won a Can-Am race. And Emory Collins because of his growing up in Regina, SK, and his racing beginnings from there.

April 1st -- Well, that above paragraph was wrong. John Cannon won the Can-Am race back in 1968 at Laguna Seca. Not sure at the moment if Cannon ever raced at Westwood. John Cordts did as far as I know. And Cordts did race Can-Am during its heyday.

And this is no April Fool joke.
