Our long national nightmare is over. Temporarily. So sayeth the intrepid Curt Cavin:

Graham Rahal has finally landed an Izod IndyCar Series ride, and it's an unexpected pairing.

Rahal will drive Sarah Fisher's Dollar General-sponsored car at two early-season races as he prepares his program for the rest of the 2010 season.

(MORE from
Pressdog sums up the weeks of peril best: "FISHER SAVES SERIES BY GIVING RAHAL TWO-RACE RIDE". The two races are the second and third of the season on the Streets of St Pete and Barber Motorsports park respectively. After that...who knows. Maybe Randy Bernard is executing some tremendous marketing plan of having the Son of Stache drive at least once for every team this year.

Meanwhile, here's an artistic interpretation from Tony Johns that should induce an aneurysm.

    That's my girl. Coming up HUGE just as the locusts and plague of frogs threatened to cover IMS. (Insert me weeping copiously here.)

    All I can say is WOW! I did NOT see this coming. When I saw the news in an email alert, I went "WHAT?!" But it is a good thing. This is why Sarah Fisher is so highly regarded by IndyCar fans. She knows she isn't a great road racer, so she's willing to abdicate her seat to someone who is. My respect for Sarah just went up 1,000 points.

    Okay that picture is seriously wrong. I think i would rather watch the Danica Boost Mobile commercial. Good for Graham, and hopefully good for Sara.
