"I like self-deprecation and having a chuckle. Sometimes we lose sight of that in a tight, two--hour time-frame. Now, it's not two questions with a driver, it's hanging out with a driver and not necessarily all the time the top drivers. I've known Stanton Barrett my whole life. We all know he's a stunt man but we don't know what that entails. Well, I'm going to spend time with him; he's going to push me out of a building." - Jack Arute, describing the job duties at his newly invented position as 'pit tactician' for VERSUS.

Speaking of self-deprecation, let's set the WABAC machine to 1985. "Whammo!"

    I was waiting for the "210, 220...whatever it takes" line to come out. Mr. Keaton would be oh so proud. Gotta love Jack!

    Penalty for running over the air hose. He should have to serve it at Indy this year.

    Was the building thing a promise?

    Milka Duno will join the line, one would imagine.

    The 'pit strategist' thing just kills me. Is it me or does his use of the monitor with the tire choices on it just seem like an easy way to reduce the expense of on-screen graphics?

    Wait. Are you sure that wasn't from an ABC After School Special?
