He's been paling around with Graham lately, and there's also that third seat still open at Penske (unless, Allmendinger has a change of heart).

He is seriously a good guy.

the first comment on the article is kind of dead on, she's quoted as saying as much.

Tough break for Dario, as I've never had a problem with him, but thank gently caress we don't have to see/hear Ashley Judd at racetracks giving Oscar acceptance speeches to ESPN/ABC/NBC ever again. She was trying way too hard to be eloquent in an environment where she seriously needed to settle the gently caress down.

Farewell, oh Scottish flag-draped-when-Dario-won-the-title-but-from-Tennessee, princess.

Ashley is rumored to be dating a recently-divorced doctor from Phoenix named Paul Hospenthal.

Despite him driving a red car, I may actually be able to get behind Dario this year in a "drat, that sucks man. Do well this year."-type of way. Sort of like the vibe I got in NASCAR with some fans after Brooke cleaned Jeff Gordon out.

Jakes is going to announce his deal next week according to rumor. It's possible he will be moving teams, with Ganassi's 4th being talked about.

Also Hamilton and his HP sponsorship may be moving. Rumor suggests a second Herta car for Briscoe. The whole thing is weird and in the air.

The way I read the Speed article is that it sounds likely that Hamilton/HP are going somewhere else - he didn't sound too happy that Schmidt got another partner involved.

Didn't know either and didn't know he got married here in Seattle. Makes sense we've legalized that and this past election. On the lines of Judd, that's two Judd's down in one offseason.

On the local news, they talked about the break-up and referred to Dario as "Fran-chet-ti". Twice. I cringed. Twice.

Also, that People article says Dario's brother Mario was his best man at the wedding. He's a race car driver and a plumber!

Yeah I was screaming at the article calling Marino, Mario. Also ESPN for some reason (don't ask me why I was watching) had a show of best sports couples and everyone from that thing called Franchitti that way. I wanted to punch my TV every time they said that. Even Paul Paige didn't gently caress around with his name like Matsushita's name.

I just think it's funny he picks the 04-07 era of that series. I mean, they were beyond irrelevant at that point.

If it was me and I was that delusional to place myself in a now defunct racing series, I'd have just pretended that CART ran the 96 500, and the Split just ended up happening like it did in 79. There in no 25-8 rule, Penske, Ganassi, Andretti never leave, and somehow CART thrives. I'd have thrown in some pretty insane happenings in the alternate timeline. Like Smoke winning the 500, and being signed by Kool Green, winning the WDC in Formula 1, and then returning to form his own team. The Busch Bros. running in the series, etc.

http://web.archive.org/web/20010517...//www.cart.com/

Pretty much THIS, but with a mixture of delusional in the mix,.

I guess Mark Plourde has never taken a logistics class, because that China-Houston-Australia-Thailand sequence would be a nightmare. "Let's go halfway around the world...and then back to Texas...before going halfway around the world again."

Why not run the Spain and Belgium races in back-to-back weeks? That's how CART did Rockingham and the race in Germany in 2001.
