Gone But Not Forgotten

Current or Former (depending on your point of view) IndyCar driver PJ Chesson will be racing this week, but it won’t be in Kentucky. Accoring to IRL-Live, PJ will be driving a sprint car at the Knoxville Nationals in Iowa.

"I'm not going to Knoxville to look for a ride," he said. "I think I've found a home in Indy Cars.”
No offense to PJ, but I wouldn’t be so sure he’s “found a home” in the IRL. PJ has just four IndyCar starts and he failed to finish any of them. In fact, in his last appearance he crashed with Helmegarn teammate Jeff Bucknum on the first lap of the Indy 500, effectively ending the 2006 season for the team.

PJ seems like a fun guy who could help promote the league and he had success in the IndyPro series in 2004, but unless he knows something I don’t I think it would be wise for him to keep his options open. It would be a good idea to stay away from Gene Simmons as well.
