FACE OF CHAMP CAR
AT THE SAN JOSE GRAND PRIX

THE MONKEY REPORT:

Thanks to Lisa for continually harassing me about my negligence in posting images from San Jose Grand Prix.

The track in San Jose is actually the streets of the downtown core making for a really interesting and unique experience, so much so, that events transpired at this Champ Car race that were worthy of a boxing match. What you should realize is that tensions run high during the races and small mistakes can cause big effects. In this case, Paul Tracy collided with Alex Tagliani during the race and the result was not only that both cars were not able to finish the race, but a heated fist fight ensued in the pit area. Talk about excitement!!!

Bird's eye view of the fight from a helicopter with great audio.
The crash and the first part of the fight.
The 2nd half of the fight that was never broadcast.

The race and the brawl aside, the Miss San Jose Grand Prix event was a blast and a hearty congratulations goes out to all of the finalists in addition to the winners - Jennifer Field, as well as 1st Runner Up - Ann McDonald and 2nd Runner Up, Megan Sellers. Enjoy photos from the race week here.
