Foyt Considering Darren Manning

Posted by Iannucci | 11/06/2006 | 1 comments »
Bookmark and Share is reporting that Foyt Racing is looking to replace Jeff Bucknum with a more esperienced driver, and supposedly the guy on the top of their list is former Target Chip Ganassi driver Darren Manning. The report also states Foyt is looking at Tomas Enge and Townsend Bell as possible drivers for the team in 2007.


I mean no disrespect to the drivers mentioned above, but are these the top drivers available? Is Larry Foyt not concerned with accident rates?

Darren Manning: 24 starts, 0 wins, 6 accidents (25%)
Townsend Bell: 12 starts, 0 wins, 4 accidents (33%)
Tomas Enge: 17 starts, 0 wins, 7 accidents (41%)

This is odd to say the least.

    I dont know if it will mean better results though....
