Somehow I find it hard to believe this headline. And Gerald Forsythe can go pound sand. He's jacking with the employment and income of a friend of mine who has to support a family.

do you really think he is desperate curt ? as probably one of the most recognizable names in american open wheel racing one almost has to think someone will put a ride together for him from a purely marketing standpoint. and to he11 with forsythe and his bags of money.

Paul Tracy should look for a ride in NASCAR .. given his driving style.(Push and shove). He would fit in great.

I can't believe Milka Duno is back, and scheduled for 11 races at that. Her car's position is so far back, we think she is in front. She is an insult to other racers including Danica. Danica has skill and fire to go to the front. Duno is a disaster....waiting to happen.

Don't do it AGR! I can't imagine Paul being able to be a "true" teammate on a team where members actually strive to make each other better by sharing setups and info. TK, the most affable driver, and PT, the worst? Not a good match. Don't do it, Mike.

Hey Paul, did you forget your in the big leagues. High profile drivers have lost rides for years in this game. Why should you be any different. Did you ever think that if you weren't such a tool, you would have more options. Go around comes around....

Do you think that Tracy's negative comments and vitriol towards IMS, Tony Geroge and the IRL have anything to do with his current inability to find a ride ? He's been one of the most outspoken critics since the split, and he's never had a good word for George, and doesn't particularly like the IMS. What goes around comes around. I really haope that he can't even fimd a job driving a garden tractor.

"Welcome" is right. When you act like an idiot, sometimes sponsors don't come looking for you. He has embarassed himself one time too many and shot off his mouth many times too many! And he won't drive for "hamburgers and hotdogs," ---I see his attitude has not changed. Why would anyone want to work with him?

Not sure what this has to do with Duno, but now that you bring her up, how about comparing the carnage of Duno compared with Tracy's? You got nothing other than she's not as fast as the other. Oh well, someone's got to be the slowest.

On what do you base that last part? Did you just make it up? No one likes FTG.

Really? When does FTG get thrown in Gitmo for his abduction, rape and murder of the Indianapolis 500?

No, it's probably got something to do with him being a d!ck.

Nope, I don't think so.

If George is willing to drop over 30 million just to get to race at Long Beach and to bring champcar drivers into his series... do you really think George wants to leave out one of the biggest champcar names there is?

Actually, you've got nothing other than Milka in a SAMAX car is not as fast.

Everybody has acknowledged how far behind the Champcar teams will be since they have no experience with the equipment.

Anybody remember that SAMAX was in the same position last May?

Milka's 'training' from Enge ended when she was putting up faster laps than Tomas... yet the car was still a pig.

Slowest is the problem. She is a snail, a corner plyon marker. She is going to cause a big wreck sooner are later if she is in the way on the track.
That is what I meant. You cant drive sloooowww, when cars are closing at a much greater speed. Get the trauma team ready. I do HOPE I AM wrong.
