Who is Anthony Fedele?

After digging around the internet, all that was to be found of this Anthony Fedele guy who laid the smackdown on Sam Hornish Sr is that he's a close friend of the Andrettis who hangs out with Michael during races.

Judging this video linked from his MySpace account, we can also see he dresses a lot like Turtle from "Entourage". Couldn't tell if he's sporting the Fukijama shoes, though.

UPDATE: Not to absolve anyone of wrongdoing, but would appear from this SpeedTV video that Sam Sr was trying to throw Fedele to the ground, and not the other way around. That there's a spunky old man.

Thanks to The American Mutt for bringing this to our attention. We can now all resume our regularly schedule lives already in progress.

    Turns out: not only did Anthony not jump Sams dad from behind, but he didn't throw him to the ground either. Check it out.

    Is Michael Andretti the type of guy to have an entourage? I could imagine him run'n with a bunch of Prilosec OTC groupies... Actually, I am 32 and I think it would be nice to kick back with them. Come on, he is 44 years old and run'n with Turtle! After watching Fedele's video, I am with Sam. Sorry, Tony Kanaan, but a member of AARP is a much better person to have in your corner. Especially, when it is your pops roll'n with you!

    I can't watch the Speed video yet so I don't know if it's the same as on IndyCar.com video but, in that video, you can see a little of the action over Sam Jr's shoulder. It sure looked like his Pops was the one starting the fight.

    Thanks for the update. Fortunately for Hornish Sr., the Gulf Stream video should be a good distraction. Senior definitely exacerbated the situation. If Junior chooses to leave, this is definitely not the way I would have liked to seen go. On Speed TV’s video, who in the world came up with the "Andretti family entourage" and "Andretti family friendship group?"

    I'm just a little grossed out by the Gulf Stream video - I am drawn to it and yet repulsed by it at the same time... Fedele and Michael Andretti look really awkward on that plane.

    Looks like Andretti's muscle. Assistant director of personal security in charge of having his guns out. I'm with Erika -- snack time on the GulfStream is a little eerie.

    Eerie, I think, is quite the understatement.

    I don't know why everyone is so weirded out by the video. It looked pretty normal to me. Maybe I'm the eerie one, because all I could think about while watching it was finding some spinach dip to go with my chips.
