"This is a really special opportunity for me - getting to drive for my cousin, getting to race on the same team with Marco, getting to work with a race team that just won a couple weeks ago and an organization that has won a lot of races. This is such a great opportunity to come here and participate in a positive way - not only from the race-team side, but also with Window World and all their great support.

"I feel a little bit like I'm 16 years old. I'm going to get out there, roll up my sleeves and maybe even reach deeper to get more and make the most of what is a short-term opportunity, but a great one, nonetheless."
- John Andretti, who hasn't been 16-years-old in 31 years, but will still be starting in his first IndyCar race other than the Indianapolis 500 since...what, 1992?

Of course, he was at Indy last year...

...which begs the question of the week: "Where's Graham?"

    He raced for Roth in the first four races after Indy in 08. Mil, Tx, Iowa, and Richmond.

    In my defense, I was relatively tired when I wrote that, but that being said - if a driver raced for Roth Racing does that even count? That's like the racing equivalent of a tree falling in a forest and no one hearing it.

    And my sincerest apologies to all those who not only drove for Roth Racing but also worked in any other capacity for the team that now has completely been erased from my mind.

    To be fair to John, when he raced with Roth, he made that team respectable, at least his half of the team. He got them a top ten finish I believe.

    Most people seemed to perform well in Roth cars, except of course Marty. I think they even got a few top five qualifications right? Tagliana is doing well with the equipment thankfully.
