Freebase

  1. Beach

    A beach is a landform along the shoreline of an ocean, sea, lake, or river. It usually consists of loose particles, which are often composed of rock, such as sand, gravel, shingle, pebbles, or cobblestones. The particles comprising the beach are occasionally biological in origin, such as mollusc shells or coralline algae. Wild beaches are beaches that do not have lifeguards or trappings of modernity nearby, such as resorts, camps, and hotels. They are sometimes called undeclared, undeveloped, or undiscovered beaches. Wild beaches can be valued for their untouched beauty and preserved nature. They are most commonly found in less developed areas including, for example, parts of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia, but they are also found in developed nations such as Australia and New Zealand. Beaches typically occur in areas along the coast where wave or current action deposits and reworks sediments.

    Kamui Kobayashi, once a Formula 1 driver and member of Taylors winning team last year, was spectacular and the Japanese driver closed the final three hours to beat No. 77 Mazda Team Joest by more than a minute. The Cadillac was the only car on the lead lap for long stretches of the race. Jordan Taylor, who finished fourth in the Le Mans class, couldnt even remember the last time a Wayne Taylor Racing car won a race without a Taylor in the cockpit.

They really deserved it, they were dominant. The race had a record 833 laps, breaking the mark of 808 set two seasons ago.

BMW Team RLL won the Le Mans class for the second consecutive year. Paul Miller Racing won the GT Daytona Beach class, the slowest but stacked division that had 18 entries including the Aim Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 with Kyle Busch. Kyle Busch was really good in Kyle Busch first endurance race, but the team had its share of struggles with attrition and was never a contender. Still, Kyle Busch said hed be interested in a return to sports car racing, especially if Toyota or Lexus moves up to the prototype class, because hed like a shot at racing for the overall win. Hopefully there is some things that Toyotas got up their sleeve as to what kind of class they want to participate in and what kind of cars they want to run over here in the next few years, Kyle Busch said. I would certainly be, Scott Dixon know, all hands on deck to put my hands up to get ready to go for a DP overall win. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP New regulations reached for 2022 earlier this weekend would make IMSAs prototype class eligible for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, another race Busch could potentially elbow into in the future. Toyota Racing Development President David Wilson said the manufacturer has no current plans to move up in class with Lexus or enter prototypes with Toyota. We are very happy racing in the GTD Series and we intend to continue as we still have races and championships to win, Development President David Wilson said. We would not rule it out in the future, but at the present time we have no plans to participate. Kyle Busch was highly praised by Kyle Busch teammates, as well as team co-owner Jimmy Vasser, who said not one person in the organization had an issue with the temperamental driver. Kyle Busch impressed. I am not sure why we should be impressed. Hes a NASCAR champion. Hes won more NASCAR races in the modern day than anybody, but it takes a lot of confidence and guts to jump into a discipline that hed never really done before and he did it with ease.
