Indecision '07: Texas

A twist this week from Texas Motor Speedway - the very same track where Sam may have recorded his final ICS victory. In an attempt to get seat time in any kind of stock car, Mr Penske has entered Mr Hornish in the Busch series race on Saturday instead of the Cup event on Sunday.

More intriguing are the words coming from Sam's mouth about his "Indecision" decision.

"I don't know," he said. "It's tough to say. I think we'd be a little closer along to making the decision or might have made it by now if we had had more success than what we've been doing so far. But I think the big thing for us is not to push too far ahead or to be too worried about that decision.

"The good thing about being here at Penske Racing is Roger will be able to find a good driver to put in. If he decides to have me keep running Indy cars, he'll find somebody for over here. I'm not forced to make that decision because I don't have to give anybody a heads up right away because they might have to find another driver real quick."

"I had a dream to some day go to Indianapolis and qualify for the (Indy 500)," he continued. "I accomplished that eight years ago and everything's been a bonus since then. I'm up for whatever the next challenge is. That could be to win Indy again or try to win Indy in a stock car." (MORE from Yahoo! Sports)
Sam? Is that you?

At any rate, Sam DID qualify 16th for the event - two spots ahead of Dario something or other.

    Oh Sam, Sam, Sam. You can't win Indy in a stock car. You can win the Allstate 400 in a stock car. But you cannot win Indy in a stock car. Just ask Tony Stewart.

    I believe this is what's called "lowering the bar". Personally, by this point I'd take the hint, but I'm not Sam I Am and my boss isn't Roger Penske.

    Good Luck Sam, and watch Dario, he tends towards "aggressive" driving.
