Aces of World War II lists over 1,270 American Aces...This is the most complete list I have seen...By contrast, there are over 5,000 documented German Aces from WWII, and German pilots had no shared victories, only one pilot could claim a independently witness and verified "kill"...If the pilots couldn't agree who got the kill, neither one was credited, it went to the staffel...Tjm

Mario Andretti was the USAC (then, the sanctioning body for "Indycar" or "Championship Cars", the United State's open-wheeled national championship) National Champion in 1969. The World Driving Championship was won by Jackie Stewart in a Matra-Ford, managed by Ken Tyrell. Afterwards, Tyrell started his own Formula One team, and Stewart would win the title again in `71 and `73 in Tyrell's cars.

Aiguille Rock Climbing Center has amazing bouldering. Although limited on roof and lacking top out boulders, the setters, lead by Mark Mercer (Assistant Head Routesetter certified by USAC), set brand new boulder routes every Friday on 5 different main sections ranging between V0-V9. These walls have produced many strong climbers, such as Ben Hoberg who just recently placed 6th in the world at the 2010 IFSC Youth Championship! So you should definitely come climb, it's less than ten bucks too for all day!
The 1950 Formula One season included the inaugural FIA Formula One World Championship season, which commenced on May 13, 1950, and ended on September 3 after 7 races. The championship consisted of six Formula One races in Europe plus the Indianapolis 500, which was run to AAA/USAC regulations. Numerous other Formula One races, which did not count towards the Championship, were also held during the year. The inaugural World Championship, to a formula which specified engine capacity of 1.5 litres supercharged or 4.5 litres unsupercharged, saw Alfa Romeo dominate with their supercharged 158, a well-developed pre-war design, which won all six European Grands Prix. Alfa drivers consequently dominated the championship with Farina edging out Fangio by virtue of his fourth place in Belgium. Although the Indianapolis 500, which ran to different regulations, was included in the championship series until 1960, it attracted very little European participation and, conversely, very few American Indianapolis drivers entered any grand prix. Championship points were given to top 5 finishers (8, 6, 4, 3, 2). 1 point was given for the fastest lap. Only the best four of seven scores counted towards the World Championship. Points for shared drives were divided equally between the drivers, regardless of how many laps each driver drove.
