Just killing time

In case Sunday rolls around and I haven't said a peep about Jacques, Sam or any other (former) open-wheel driver's weekend in Alabama, rest assured it isn't for lack of caring. No, your humble correspondent will be taking a few days off and away from the My Name Is IRL World Headquarters, returning late Monday - just in time to vote for Helio.

Besides, no one reads this site on the weekends anyways.

At any rate, please excuse the absence while you pass the time by catching up on all the other worthy sites. If that won't do then just stare at this wonderful memory from one of the few Indy 500s I was lucky enough to be rained out of attend in person. Yes, I was gifted with some great seats for the "Dog of '98", and it was about the most exciting thing I got to see at IMS that year. Two days, 15 laps, and this crazy pooch.

    She was a little lose through the corners, but that dog went faster than some of the pigs I've seen at Indy. If he could just find a sponsor ...

    What a great memory my wife and I were between turns 1 and 2.

    If the dog was on the clock it
    would have out qualified Billy Roe.

    Rumor is the dog tried nascar but it was too ruff !

    If memory serves me.

    Wasn't that the year that a local Indy tv weather guy guaranteed that the race wouldn't take place
    but as soon as Jim Nabors sang the clouds parted and the sun came out.

    Never underestimate the power of Jim Nabors !
