There is a Walmart not far from the airport in Orlando (north on 436/Semoran) that might save you the zaniness of the Daytona location (although all their locations seem to have 'zany.')

Not my favorite liveries on the Penske cars, from what I can tell, but then again, it's nice to see cars in very clean, simple color schemes these days.

There's a reason the Risi car has been my favorite among the Ferraris.

Also, does anyone else think the #5 Cadillac colors look at all similar to the livery on the 1988 Sauber Mercedes C9s?

I'm looking at getting down there for the 24 in 2019. That will be a first!

By the way, Penske has released their official liveries for this weekend's race.

A bit more vanilla than I expected. I thought we would see something similar to the Acura liveries on the shank cars last season, but I guess the freckles on the fins are an ode to that.

I'll have to see it in person. The "standard" Penske livery looked amazing on the Oreca.

I'm all about those Penske schemes.

We haven't seen the ESM cars yet what they're doing.

I'll have a hard time distinguishing those two when the car(s) is/are coming at me at speed at 17 in Sebring but I'll manage!
