The 50,000-plus fans come for a reason, and it's not the sunburn or the inner ear damage they'll enjoy come Sunday. They come for the spectacle that makes those side effects forgettable—enough silly acceleration to embarass an antelope, precision braking to make Mario Andretti blush and races so tight they'll help ol' Hillary and Barack understand that the competitiveness of their primary was plain tame.
