Kinda Like a Merger, But Better

I have no idea what the 200 Mile TaG Endurance Race in New Castle, Indiana is (perhaps Joe from Trackside Online can shed some light in the comments), but the race will feature several former, current and future IndyCar series drivers.

Scott Dixon
Sarah Fisher
Jay Howard
Arie Luyendyk Jr
Robby McGehee
Tomas Scheckter
Jeff Simmons
Rick Treadway
Dan Wheldon

Pressdog has fallen all over himself because because The Fisher Queen has been paired with the Dame of Destruction, Ms. Katherine Legge. Yes, the IRL and Champ Car working together, as only ladies can. Can I get a team shirt for my daughter?

    I can tell you it will be on TV, thanks to their website.

    "The 2006 200 Mile Endurance Race at New Castle Motorsports Park will be recorded and televised on SpeedTV."

    Hey, beats watching NASCAR Performance.

    They had a little more detail elsewhere as far as starting times, etc.

    The rationale behind the race? For these guys, probably just a fun way to stay sharp in the off-season.

    Thanks, Joe.

    Uh, I could have looked up those links but I, uh, wanted to make you look smart.

    Or make myself look lazy.

    I about crapped myself, fo sho. I'm hijacking the Legge/Fisher team and calling it "team pressdog." If only I had a trillion dollars, it would be true. Both are highly sidepod worthy.

    p-dawg, you may as well see what a sidepod sponsorship for a go-kart race in New Castle, Indiana costs.

    What's the worst that happens?

    Pressdog has informed me that he is indeed looking into the matter of go-kart sponsorship.

    If anyone happens to see Ms Fisher or Ms Legge this week, do put in a good word.
