If we’re going to be talking about ways to make the IndyCar series more interesting then let’s put everything on the table. Since folks wanting to have genteel conversations at the track wish to make the cars run quieter, how about we add some excitement by putting stylized horns on each race car.

And in honor of the highest finish ever by a Japanese driver, I think we all know what Hideki Mutoh needs to have. Click the image above to hear.
