    In case there are any race fans on here, I will be racing on May 3 at Talladega Superspeedway in the ARCA Racing Series. The race airs live on Fox Sports 1 at 11am ET. I was 4th quick in testing at Talladega this week with a speed of 183.367 mph. I was second quick in single car runs with only 1/1000 of a second keeping me from the top of the charts. Here's some video of my Blackfish car I have nicknamed "Tilly" and I taking our first laps at Talladega:

    If you don't know what Blackfish is about, here is the trailer for the film



    The race was paid for mostly by Sam Simon, the co creator of The Simpsons, who has terminal cancer:

    Sweet! I still can't believe you don't eat meat! I purchased a Black P85+ and hope to take delivery next week. What are some of the best things I need to know about this car?

    Why is that so hard to believe? There are 600 million vegetarians on our planet (including many athletes). If we were one nation we would be larger than the United States, England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand combined!



    PS. Congratulations on your Model S! You are going to LOVE it!

    Leilani, thank you for challenging us.
    For your relentless boldness, your passion.

    Wish I could be at your race to support you in person.

    Thank you Greg! I wish you could to! All my Tesla buddies are invited, although at this point it looks like Bonnie is going to represent for TMC at Talladega! :)
