Can you imagine the logistics of setting up a trip to drive through every state in America?
I’ve got the windows up and the air-conditioning on full blast, but I’m still sweating like I’ve sprung a leak. The hot and humid air swirling around the cabin is already so saturated with moisture it can’t absorb any of mine. In front of me is a quarter-mile drag strip covered in so much grip goo it’s like a giant piece of flypaper. Behind and to the side of me in the grandstand is a crowd of people waiting expectantly for something historic to happen.
