"When we first came up here about eight years ago it was always a dream that one day Scott would win the 500," he said. "Those emotions just burst out; it was incredible. People ask, 'How do you feel?' I don't really know. You go numb, and then you start yahooing and yelling." - Ron Dixon, father of Scott Dixon, who also served as a spotter at Indy...for John Andretti.

"Up until the last 10 laps, I sort of listened to what was happening but I was concentrating 100 percent on John," he said. "I have to be honest that each time John disappeared down that front straight I started looking for Scott and it was sort of starting to happen at just the right time - Scott was coming into Turn 3 and John was in Turn 1.

"But it was hard. I called John until the bitter end; you have to because it's a job."

    Sorry Jeff, kind of off topic here. I know you are busy as hell, and we all appreciate what you do. You give 110%. But technically we need to add a couple drivers to the page. There probably isn't enough time for awhile, as there are races a plenty coming up. Anyhow, Dominguez and Camara are both full time drivers now. Duno and T. Bell are splitting the D&R ride. Just wanted to throw this info out there. Don't pay me no mind. We can throw out a new nickname game if ya want.
