Are you smarter than a 2-year-old

People will put anything on YouTube, and if it’s even remotely related to IndyCars it may in fact end up here. Case in point is this video of a doting mom who instead of teaching her young son to recognize silly things like numbers, letters, colors or animals has decided it's best to fill her little skull full of mush with the names of IndyCar drivers. She's Mother of the Year!

Incredibly this prodigy is culling his wisdom from a Japanese publication, so if he can learn the rest of the words in there this kid is halfway to joining the Honda Performance Development team.

And no, this is not one of my offspring. My kids can recognize Dario and Vitor thank you very much, although honestly they wouldn't know Jeff Bucknum if he showed up wearing a sign.

    Not to be negative at all, but in light of everything that has gone on the past week, I have to wonder if this kid will every see "unity" in his lifetime. Kudos to the mom for at least having the kid learn open-wheel drivers! Who says you can't brainwash too early. We need all the fans we can get. N****R blows.

    There's a reason the kid isn't learning Jan Heylan and Enrique Bernoldi, isn't there?

    As the mom of that two year old little guy, let me just assure you that he does know his numbers, letters, colors and animals. :)

    He has an interest in Indy Cars because of his daddy's involvement in them, and picked up these names very quickly without much active help!

    I'm not proud at all, as you can tell. ;)
