  3. Not a surprise. Texas just had a power outage when 6 power plants went off line. Friend is an electrical contractor and said demand for backup generators has gone crazy in the last comes years. Just last week he installed 2 at private residence and averages at least 2 per month. On EV vehicles people don't realize the power requirements for quick chargers. Most are 50 amps and up.

  5. There's some good stories about Yunick and Bill France Sr as they really didn't get along. Smokey was a helicopter pilot.
