Sunday's race at St Pete will be the 200th start in Dario Franchitti's illustrious CART and IndyCar career. He's marking the occasion with toilet paper.

Cottonelle Brand to Sponsor Dario Franchitti at Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

INDIANAPOLIS (March 24, 2010) –Target Chip Ganassi Racing announced today that Cottonelle brand will serve as the primary sponsor of its No.10 Honda Dallara for reigning IZOD IndyCar Series Champion Dario Franchitti in Round 2 of the series at the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (March 28 at 3:30 PM ET, ABC). Kimberly-Clark joined the Target racing program in 2010, and its brands will be featured on both the team’s IZOD IndyCar and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars this season.

I rather enjoyed the awful racing double entendres that resulted from Dario's Vaseline For Men livery, but I don't know where to begin with IndyCar potty humor.

    Do the jokes really stop? Vaseline for Men in 2009 & this year is followed by tissue paper... what's the 2011 sponsor? Vivid Video?? :) :) :)

    I SO want that car in diecast. However, I have no doubt Mattel won't bother. I'm wondering if they're going to bother to make any 2010 cars period.

    Why wouldn't they??? Dallara molds exist & its just a decal package. I do agree with you though... is there gonna be much of a demand for a toliet paper diecast??? Hot Wheels & I doubt it! :) :)
