Tornado à la NASCAR (Amazing 55 Rd. 99)
Closed Track


Faster than Earnhardt, I raced around the tornado's inner wall.  From nowhere, a gingham-clad girl on a bike flew by, cutting me off.  "This is my track, old man!" she snarled.

I awoke, startled.

"Repeating our headline: The Daytona 500 has been suspended due to a tornado warning," the television announcer said.

Whoa.  Weird dream.

I awoke, startled, to a racing update:  "Repeating: The Daytona Five Hundred has been suspended due to a tornado warning."

Whoa.  Weird dream.
