"There's no drafting, no tailgating, stay 50 feet behind the car in front of you, and there shouldn't be too much passing," Gillespie warned Friday before the start of his pet project, the Green Grand Prix. "Drive safely. I don't want anybody going 30 mph or even 33 mph at the top of the esses. And if you have to take a potty break, there's a porta-john over there."
"He was stealing the show," Gillespie said. "It's not about the future of wood-powered vehicles. It's something different from that."
