We thought it might be fun for those of you who couldn’t test drive a new car at Riverhead Raceway this weekend to see what it’s like sitting in the passenger seat as a Chevy Corvette whips around the race track.

Suffolk County Legislator Ed Romaine (R-Center Moriches) filed a bill on Tuesday urging the county to go to court to seek a refund of about $12 million in MTA payroll taxes the county paid to the state over the past four years.
A similar resolution was submitted in Brookhaven Town by Councilman Dan Panico, who said that town is seeking a refund of about $917,000 from the MTA.
Mr. Romaine is also running for Brookhaven Town supervisor in November.
Read more about the bill in Thursday’s paper.
