Guess who said this:

"I honestly believe the IndyCar Series is ready for a big boost of momentum...I very much enjoy driving those race cars, particularly at the Indianapolis 500. Now, they seem ready to go the extra mile and do what it takes to increase awareness. They have some good people now and have a little consistency in that. I believe and trust what they are saying.

"With (president of the commercial division) Terry Angstadt, you have somebody now with a solid focus on moving the series ahead. Having him is a help because it is stability and he understands we have to do whatever it takes. I really do see some momentum and you will hear some more positives in the future.

"And the Helio Castroneves factor (from winning "Dancing with the Stars") will be very, very good. You have to give Helio credit with the way he portrayed himself and he portrayed the IndyCar Series was very positive. I don't think anybody but him could have done as good a job as he did, which is why we couldn't give him any grief about it even though we were dying to. What he did for IndyCar's image was very important."

    All I can do is shake my head and wonder what in the blue heck is his malfunction...

    Unrelated...sorry, but this is quite interesting. On the 22nd Cavin wrote in his blog "But here's one for you: I like the odds of SAMAX returning with Mario Dominguez and not Milka Duno, who is looking at other options." Well..after reading that happy was I (no Milka!). BUT then I read this today, " The famous race car driver and the actor famous for driving a fast car hit it off immediately, especially when Dominguez invited Schneider to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. "Bo Duke" said he would love to come, and that he had driven in the Pro/Celebrity race in the 1980's", posted on the CCWS site on the 24th. Think they dug this one up real quick?

    New teeth, new attitude. I sat Dan down and said, "Dan, how about getting with the program? Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win?" (Name that movie!)Gonna have to get me a Danny racer T-shirt if this continues.
