"Jack Arute asked Vitor in the post-race interview if he had tears in his eyes. Vitor said, 'A.J. would kick my butt if I was crying here so I better not.'

"Maybe not, Vitor, maybe not. As hard as you worked to recover and as hard as you raced, you deserved this. I was as thrilled for you as if you had won the race. By the way, you didn't have to thank me for waiting for you. You drove like the champion we knew you to be when we hired you so of course we waited for you to come back.

"And when you do win this year, I'll be wearing my sunglasses, even if it's raining."

- AJ Foyt, coming thisclose to shedding a manly tear.

    I think I just shed a manly tear READING that. :-)

    And that might be the first time that word has been ever used in relation to AJ Foyt. ;-)

    Foyt's "tears" are comprised of thunder clouds & axle grease.
