Jack Arute calls out Marco

We are but a few days away before the start of the season and everyone is getting out their super pointy prediction hats (present company included). Now it’s time for Jack Arute to give us his insight.

Arute has been covering IndyCars for so long he probably parks in his own pit stall. His longevity is likely due to his ability to simultaneously inform, confuse and entertain every time he gets his 10 second pit reports. Ask him about IndyCars and he starts talking about eggs or airplanes or who knows what – you can’t fall asleep on Arute.

So when giving his opinion on who’s going to win at Homestead, it’s completely logical that he starts talking about scoring at night clubs.

So who wins Saturday night?

I love chaos so I'm going with Andretti. He's moved down to Miami, he says to work out with fitness-obsessed teammate Tony Kanaan. He's never suffered from a lack of confidence, but I think he'll win just so he can stroll over to South Beach after the race. Things don't start rolling in South Beach's clubs until after 1 a.m., so that won't be a problem and he will lead the league in ladies.
Just to clarify: He won’t be old enough to drink until next year, but Andretti 3.0 is still predicted to win Saturday night and “lead the league in ladies.” Aye aye aye. I love this league!

    Why couldn't Jack have moved over to the NASCAR coverage?

    Honestly, all the pit reporters I liked on the ABC/ESPN coverage ... I now see on Saturday's for BGN races.

    Sigh.

    I can add that when I took that picture (May 2007 Indy garage area), Jack looked confused and wasn't sure where he was supposed to go.

    Jamie Little is the one I'll miss this year--and her smile. =)
