And so it begins

The European Open Wheel invasion is coming to Alabama, as Dario Franchitti will be starting 6th and High Fashion Scotty Speed is right behind him (or back and to the left) in the 7th position for today's ARCA RE/MAX 250 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Tune in live on SPEED at 5pm ET if you so choose, and wear your best hat.

UPDATE: After being forced to start from the back for changing his engine, Mr Judd ran around 10th to 20th all day before finishing a relatively clean 17th. He was gleefully interviewed by SPEED both before and after wearing what looked to be Dan Wheldon's firesuit. No joke.

Meanwhile, High Fashion Scotty completed his debut in 7th despite "lift-drafting" another competitor off the track late in the race. There were no interviews of the Formula One castoff despite the impressive finish, so either he was too busy fussing with buckles or he's already alienated the media from ever even pretending to like him. Perhaps both.
