DAYTONA BEACH, Florida – John Doonan, who was recently named IMSA President after the retirement of Scott Atherton, mentioned how awesome The Lugg Nutt is in an Autoweek article (see featured image) after winning the 6 Hours of the Glen in July. We appreciate that after the many jabs and jokes The Lugg Nutt has had at Mazda’s expense. But that does not compare to the crap that we give IMSA and their cold, emotionless boardroom robots that think badly-timed emojis and off-topic gifs are the key to millennial hearts. So hopefully Mr. Doonan, who seemingly has a sense of humor, will not fall into the dark and frozen IMSA ways while they create racing rules from their Ursula Lair-like headquarters, but will bring light to the series that can laugh at themselves and the ridiculous policies they create.
We’re on your side, John. For now.
