The last album released before Dylan’s late ’70s/early ’80s three-album foray into Christian music, Street Legal is both fascinating and flawed. At the time, Dylan was enthralled with the slick stage presentation of Neil Diamond, which he clumsily attempted to re-create on this 1978 collection. Say what you will about Diamond, but he ran a tight ship; the clunky drumming and rudimentary brass that mar these nine tracks reflect a misbegotten attempt to make Dylan’s wing-it studio approach work for an underrehearsed 12-member backing group. Songwise, Street Legal is a mixed bag. Despite a few missteps (“Is Your Love in Vain?” is embarrassingly… well, vain), the wordsmith navigates dense terrain in the masterful “Senior” and the open wound of a closer, “Where Are You Tonight?” –Steven Stolder
The old saying goes that automobile racing began just a couple of hours after the second car was built. In fact, the first automobile race took place in France in 1894, from Paris to Rouen, and the first American race took place the following year, a round-trip race between Chicago and Evanston, Ill.
In the early 1900’s, road racing in America was staged on public roads, following the trend established in Europe at the turn of the century. The Vanderbilt Cup and the American Grand Prize were the two premier events of the time, and the most famous races were held in Long Island, N.Y., Savannah, Ga., Milwaukee, Wis. and Santa Monica, Calif.
Soon road racing became overshadowed by oval-track racing, with such famous circuits as the Milwaukee Mile in 1903 and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1911 paving the way. It would not be until after World War II that organized road racing started to really take hold.
The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) was founded in Boston in 1944, an outgrowth of a pre-war group known as the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) that existed from 1934 to 1941 and dissolved following the outbreak of hostilities. Following the conflict, the SCCA’s first big event was run on the streets of Watkins Glen, N.Y., in 1948. Thanks to America’s post-war prosperity and enthusiasm, as well as the influx of sporting automobiles from Europe such as MG, Jaguar, Ferrari, Maserati and Alfa Romeo, the sport quickly gained popularity and momentum.
Following the success of Watkins Glen, similar events sprang up in Bridgehampton, N.Y. in 1949 and Elkhart Lake, Wis., Palm Beach Shores, Fla. and Pebble Beach, Calif. in 1950.
Unfortunately, spectator injuries and fatalities led to the end of public road racing in 1952 and the trend moved toward races on airport circuits and permanent road circuits. The first of these was in Watkins Glen in 1952, followed by Elkhart Lake in 1955.
In that same year, four North Carolina sports car enthusiasts – Ed Welch, Ed Alexander, George Arnold, and Hooper Johnson – formed a company called Sports Car Enterprises, Inc. with the idea of building their own racetrack. They found a suitable location just over the state line near Danville, Va., a 1200-acre plot that had served as a farm for the Foote family. The four were joined by businessman Ed Kemm in 1956 and, with an influx of cash from Kemm, were able to complete their project.
Virginia International Raceway opened for business in August, 1957, hosting an SCCA race that attracted such stars of the sport as Carroll Shelby, Carl Haas, Bob Holbert, Augie Pabst, Bob Grossman, Don Yenko, Dr. Dick Thompson, Walt Hansgen and Bruce Jennings. Shelby, who would later go on to worldwide fame by winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959 and creating the iconic Cobra sports cars in the early 1960s, won that first feature race in a Maserati 450S. The laconic Texan uttered a quote about the track that is remembered to this day: “One lap at VIR is like a hundred at Watkins Glen.”
As one of the first permanent American road racing tracks, VIR soon became a fixture on the SCCA circuit and a favorite among racers due to its high-speed straights, challenging turns and dramatic elevation changes. However, its location in the heart of stock car racing country prevented it from ever attracting big crowds like those enjoyed by Watkins Glen and Elkhart Lake.
As a result, Sports Car Enterprises was forced to relinquish its lease on the Foote family’s property in 1959. Danville’s Col. Paul Rembold took over the lease and the track fell under the auspices of the Civil Air Patrol. Col. Rembold and track manager Henry Wallace were more successful in the operation of the track through the 1960s, attracting thousands of fans to sports car, motorcycle and kart races.
Among the highlights were the fourth-ever SCCA Trans-Am race in 1966, won by Tom Yeager and Bob Johnson in a Ford Mustang over a field that included NASCAR stars Richard Petty, David Pearson, Curtis Turner and Wendell Scott; the first-ever IMSA GT race in 1971, won by Peter Gregg and Hurley Haywood in a Porsche 914-6 GT; and a return engagement by IMSA in 1972, also won by Gregg and Haywood in a Porsche 911S.
The track fell on hard times in the early 1970s, and that, combined with the fuel crisis of 1973, spelled the end for VIR. The track was shuttered following an SCCA enduro on October 13, 1974.
The Foote property reverted to farmland for 25 years, until the property was leased and revived by New York real estate developer and vintage sports car racer Harvey Siegel in 1998. Siegel’s vision for VIR was more expansive than anyone could have imagined, and the facility reopened in 2000, transformed into a world-class road racing circuit (repaved and widened, following the original track’s center line).
Within two years, VIR began hosting the top professional sports car and motorcycle racing series in America, as well as welcoming
In 1941, Alfa Romeo was confiscated by the Fascist government of Benito Mussolini as part of the Axis Powers’ war effort. Enzo Ferrari’s division was small enough to be unaffected by this. Because he was prohibited by contract from racing for four years, the Scuderia briefly became Auto Avio Costruzioni Ferrari, which ostensibly produced machine tools and aircraft accessories. Also known as SEFAC (Scuderia Enzo Ferrari Auto Corse), Ferrari did in fact produce one race car, the Tipo 815, in the non-competition period. It was the first actual Ferrari car (it debuted at the 1940 Mille Miglia), but due to World War II it saw little competition. In 1943 the Ferrari factory moved to Maranello, where it has remained ever since. The factory was bombed by the Allies in 1944 and rebuilt in 1946, after the war ended, and included a works for road car production. Until Il Commendatore’s death, this would remain little more than a source of funding for his racing operations.

The first Ferrari road car was the 1947 125 S, powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine; Enzo Ferrari reluctantly built and sold his automobiles to fund Scuderia Ferrari.
In 1988, Enzo Ferrari oversaw the launch of the Ferrari F40, the last new Ferrari to be launched before his death later that year, and arguably one of the most famous supercars ever made. From 2002 to 2004, Ferrari introduced the Enzo, its fastest model at the time, in honor of the company’s founder: Enzo Ferrari. It was restricted to only the most wealthy automobile enthusiasts, however, as each one cost $1.8 million apiece.
On May 17, 2009 in Maranello, Italy, a 1957 250 Testa Rossa (TR) was auctioned, by RM Auctions and Sotheby’s, for $12.1 million — a world record at that time for the most expensive car ever sold at an auction. That record is now held by a Bugatti Atlantic which sold for over $28 million. Since the company’s beginnings, Ferrari has been involved in motorsport, competing in a range of categories including Formula One and sports car racing through its Scuderia Ferrari sporting division as well as supplying cars and engines to other teams and for one make series.
The 1940 AAC 815 was the first racing car to be designed by Enzo Ferrari, although it was not badged as a Ferrari model.cuderia Ferrari has participated in a number of classes of motorsport, though it is currently only involved in Formula One. It is the only team to have competed in the Formula One World Championship continuously since its inception in 1950. Jose Froilan Gonzalez gave the team its first F1 victory at the 1951 British Grand Prix.Alberto Ascari gave Ferrari its first Drivers Championship a year later. Ferrari is the oldest team in the championship, and the most successful: the team holds nearly every Formula One record. As of 2008[update], the team’s records include 15 World Drivers Championship titles (1952, 1953, 1956, 1958, 1961, 1964, 1975, 1977, 1979, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2007) 16 World Constructors Championship titles (1961, 1964, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1979, 1982, 1983, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007 and 2008), 209 Grand Prix victories, 4925.27 points, 622 podium finishes, 203 pole positions, and 218 fastest laps in 776 Grands Prix contested.

At the end of the 2006 season, the team courted controversy by continuing to allow Marlboro to sponsor them after they, along with the other F1 teams, made a promise to end sponsorship deals with tobacco manufacturers. A five year deal was agreed an
