Friends of Laguna Seca Looks to have Won the Right to Manage Track, maybe, probably, it seems

The non-profit Friends of Laguna Seca is on the way to managing the storied track and bringing it back to fiscal health. Unless, that is, the Monterey County Board of Supervisors decides it wants to go with two other groups vying for management control of the race facility.Specifically, Friends of Laguna Seca won the right to “negotiate initially” with the County for a concession agreement. The County Board would have to approve any agreement that comes out of the negotiations. If things don’t go well in the concession agreement process, then the Board can pick up with either of the other two groups that had turned in proposals.

Fords and Chevys dominated, but beyond the occasional MG, Triumph, or Renault the import scene was essentially a VW scene. When my folks finally pulled the trigger on a second car they bought a Beetle, and that shopping process was my first exposure to a Volkswagen showroom.For our family VW love wasn't a cult, but our '66 model spoke – as did all Volkswagens and most imports at the time – of a return to common sense in your transportation choice. As VW's own marketing so wonderfully communicated, you didn't need big fins or annual model changes to go grab...
