Yes, Mark. It is a big story. This is the Indy Star, not the LA Times. You might be interested to know that Indianapolis hosts the Indy 500. It is the single largest one day sporting event in the world. Keep up the informative comments, though.

Spot on, Gimme. It is also a good story of a national star, a Paul Newman sort, hearthrob, servicable race drive and owner, who probably should have been killed when he hit the wall, coming back to re-join the racing community.
Jason is not from Indianapolis (a Canadian), but he still knows the greatness of The 500.

"Dude, this is going to be so fun." JP is going to find out the hard way how to make a small fortune in racing; we'll see how much "fun" it is at the end of 2008 season, then it will be "Dude, where's my money?"

Lol. More like the Earl 497, and FTG is passing out the field filler checks early this year.

He really should wait, Champ Car probably won't even have a season, and he could get a few stragglers that way.:shrug:

I wish he'd take his meds. for god sake! It would suck to have all those voices in your head but they have medication for that. Perhaps he should write a play or something. But not about the Indy racing league I'd kill him.
