The eyes of the world are on you. You sit at a console, counting down. Your mind is totally concentrated.

On the radio, you can hear the sweet whine of the engine. You can see the torque and rpm curves climbing strong and tight, on your laptop readout.
Beside you in the pit, one of the tire guys is angry, almost in tears, a quiet guy who can lift two tires on each arm, a guy you wouldn’t want to mess with in a bar; he says, “The problem ain’t the motor, dude. And it ain’t the...
