Here’s what drivers said after Saturday’s Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring, the second race of the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship: PIPO DERANI (No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac DPi-V.R) – OVERALL WINNER: “Unbelievable job! It was tricky at the beginning of the race, with the rain, but I managed to move my way from fifth into first and open a gap. But today was just one of those days, where everything clicked and nothing went wrong. Big thanks to my team, the Whelen Engineering Cadillac is an amazing car and I’m really happy to have won three times in four years. I wouldn’t be able to do that without the job the Action Express guys have done behind the scenes, and Felipe at the end and Eric keeping the car in front. What a day!” FELIPE NASR (No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac DPi-V.R) – OVERALL WINNER: “Today was a super challenging day and I am so proud of the job by the entire Action Express team. They gave us an amazing … [Read more...] about IMSA: Here’s what drivers said after Saturday’s 12 Hours of Sebring
12 hours of sleep
Well that was eventful! The first four hours were so intense I needed to take a break for a bit. Completely unlike last year’s relatively quiet race, this year incidents happened thick and fast. Whether it was close, tight racing or incidents of minor contact delaying cars or sending them into spins. Thankfully nothing major in the early stages and the race was able to stay green flag for much of the time. It settled into a rhythm after that. The evening and overnight racing was fantastic. The top DPi cars were passing and repassing. Alonso (Cadillac) passing Castroneves (Acura) about 8 hours in was a particular highlight. The GT classes were having their usual fights. Even the sparse LMP2 was eventful. At one stage quite deep into the race was a train of 7 DPi cars running 4 seconds apart, all for position, with Alonso taking over 7th. After a yellow he restarted 5th and in the next half hour raced his way to the class lead against the likes of Helio Castroneves (Acura), Rene … [Read more...] about Update: 2019 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona

Jennifer Chambers The Detroit News Published 3:56 p.m. UTC Aug 15, 2018 During the school year, Lynn Stannard often hears her teen daughter roaming around her bedroom late at night despite the start of class just hours away. “She got wound up at night. She just couldn’t settle down,” Stannard said of Abby Hutchinson, 14, who attends Berkley High School. “Sometimes I am up in the middle of the night, and she is still up. I tell her to go to bed.” Research has shown what many parents of teenagers already know: most teens naturally go to sleep later and wake up later than younger children. The natural sleep rhythms of adolescents shift up to two hours later after the start of puberty, experts say. Yet an overwhelming majority of public schools across the nation expect teens to be in high school classrooms before dawn. In Michigan, start times typically range between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. when it is still dark much of the year. One Metro Detroit school … [Read more...] about Some Mich. schools delay start times to help teens sleep, learn
