Yea or nay: Marco’s duds

It’s one thing to have a tricked out car with a black, brown and orange Indiana Jones motif that is contrasted with a HUGE blue Blockbuster logo, but it seems Marco Andretti’s nomex also got some energized sponsorship.

So, this is supposed to look like the Indiana Jones leather jacket, right down to the diagonal strap and simulated buttons. Good gracious!

Question: Does his helmet have a brim to look like a fedora?

    You really don't see much of the uniforms on TV, but Marco's is pretty weird looking. I love Indiana Jones and the paint scheme, but on TV during the race, I have the feeling it isn't going to show up too swift without HDTV.

    IF only I could have been there when Michael told Marco about his sponsorship for the month. Heeelarious!

    Oh there's more, if you can find a better shot, he also has gun holsters at the hips/beltline

    abeybHis car and firesuit, complete with gun holsters, are not my cup 'o tea. But then again, I'm about the only one who actually digs Townsend's flat olive "jeep" paint scheme.

    If they wanted Marco to "match" Harrison Ford, why are the suit pants that ugly orange ! I know it matches the car, but it's just wrong.

    I LOVE THE CAR !!!

    I hope some cast members from the movie would show up at the race!

    You know how after they qualify they pull into a line to be photographed with their cars and crews? I was keeping an eye on Marco while this was happening...they did take pictures of him in a fedora.

    I'm thinking the picture you posted says volumes about how Marco feels about the deal.

    so they get a new suit every month when they get a new sponser, right? i'm tryng to understand the sponsership stuff because i like the racing. and yeah... the orange pants are wrong they should have made the pants brown like the rest of the suit.
