Guess who's coming to Indianapolis?

This particular story seems to be rumored nearly every year, but this year it may be more than just rumors. Our buddy Diecast Dude is in SoCal and found his way to the nearest race track so he could speak with some drivers. And since he's an IndyCar fan at heart, he had to ask THE question.

Ran into Robby Gordon as he was headed toward his car prior to first practice. He’s working on a deal to run in this year’s Indy 500. Nothing firm yet, and no teams ruled in or out. Don’t know if he’s planning the double by running the Coca-Cola 600 later that day. If I can find out more I will, but at least now you know the scoop.
Word on twitter is this deal involves Walker Racing (remember them!), but obviously there has been no announcement yet.

This seems like a fantastic time to relive this epic Indy 500 memory. (Well, unless your name is Robby Gordon, in which case you probably don't want to go through this again.)

If you listen close I think you do in fact hear Robby dropping an F-bomb on LIVE television. You probably would too if you were him that day.

    For the record, he was very friendly.

    That was the one year in the 90's that the Menards car didn't blow its engine up, if I remember right.

    This is why I felt like throwing myself off the bridge when my 500 plans fell through. RG's my guy and am really looking forward to this if the deal works out.

    BP - that was because they weren't running their own engine that used to splode :)

    Could've swore Brack throws an F-bomb as he hits the final lap too

    OMG I've never seen this much of that race and it's killing me hearing them tell RG he was okay on gas. *headdesk*

    well if we're talking about f-bombs I don't think anyone will beat Arie's "they waved the green, the lights are yellow, what the f^&* are they doing?" on his white flag lap to the checkers...commenting on the same USAC T&S team that caused his run-down with A.J. the very next race
