  1. Hope all those drivers schools didn’t cost as much as your degree. But I bet it was a lot more fun! Jim Russell Canada 1970 graduate. Have fun. Be safe. Go like hell!

  2. In a more relevant comment, my significant other went to the Russell school at Sears Point around 2000 and followed that up with track days in her Corolla GTS at Texas World Speedway.

    Girls do drive fast. Keep it up.
