Tap the Brakes

Speed is the very fabric of competitive auto racing. Ever since the onset of gasoline-fueled automobiles racers have been trying to one-up each other competitively. The first recorded organized contest of speed took place on April 28, 1887. Just one competitor showed up for that first race, but he was there to go fast (relatively…
