"I do pay attention to [N****R], I think just because with Penske Racing having everything under one roof it's like we're just one big team. I see the N****R drivers all the time. Justin Allgaier and Kurt Busch and (Sam) Hornish, obviously. (David) Stremme. I might not sit down for the entire 17 hours of a race, but I will definitely pay attention to it." - Ryan Briscoe, responding to the question "Would we have to pay you to care about N****R?" For real.

(Thanks to Tomaso at NoFenders.net for bringin this to our attention.)

    So what's the over/under for when he races for Penske in a Cup race? My guess is Novermber 2011.

    Jeffconn,

    Hornish, I think, didn't go to Napcar for the challenge, nor for the money (though who would mind that money?), in an interview with Curt (while at Sonoma I believe) he revealed what I think his reason really was: Vanity. He complained about the sport having it's stars and lamented the fact that he wasn't one of them. I think he wants to be famous, and decided that just wasn't going to happen in Indycar. He was fine with Indycar, and didn't NEED a new challenge, when he was the golden boy of the series, but the spotlight fell elsewhere (Danica) and he lost interest after achieving an Indy 500 win. Just my thinking mind you.

    I don't see Briscoe being that guy, but who knows.

    Dario I think got scared after twice flipping through the air. Ironically he was fine, and then broke an ankle in Napcar.
