Hopefully not like what happened to Mast. Good news is hr had a long career and was winding it up but lovely if this will have lasting effects.

Sage Karam just got done speaking here at IndyCar Media Day, and he announced that he will be running the remainder of the WeatherTech Series in a Chip Ganassi Lexus GTD entry beginning with Laguna Seca. Sage will also be running in the 100th Indy 500 this year as his only IndyCar race (so far)

Isn't it Gentilozzi's RSR that are running the Lexus?

Maybe it's their car, I just know Sage mentioned Chip Ganassi when talking about it so I figured that's who's ride it was. It must have been Chip's connections that landed Sage that ride.

NHRA is switching to EFI in Pro Stock, which means new front ends, among other things. Most P/S teams are barely clinging on so let's make them spend a bunch of money!

I dunno, he was fast and hosed up a lot. On the sportscar side, he was super good at Sebring a while ago in the DPs. The worst part about Karam were the jackasses who breathlessly supported him as the second coming of racecar jesus or someshit, but thankfully most of them are gone these days.

A GTD ride with a veteran teammate seems like a good fit for him right now. He's certainly no worse than a lot of the richguy jaggoffs that keep GTD around.

Sage needs to work his way back up to the big cars, and GTD is a good place for him. When I asked him about it he seemed pretty excited for it and I support Sage (especially wearing a shirt)

It's nobody's fault that both Japan and Germany's racing colors are white.


What we really need is some French and American prototypes in, to add some blue to the mix.

Thats part of the reason I love Daytona/Sebring so much, the cars come out looking gnarly. Having 53 cars on 3.5 miles and highbanks of Daytona or 3.7 miles with the bumps of Sebring for 24 hours is stupid and just great.

A similar shot of the PC winner at the end looking tore up:

Casey Atwood. Joey Logano. Sage Karam can wind up like one of them- either a washout or a success after regrouping somewhat and finding a new gear.

I get that Atwood got a bit of a bum deal from Evernham in the end, but both of those two stick out as getting hype like Karam.

I'm not sure if I respect the drivers or the commentary crew more by now. They have an endurance race of their own by doing all of them globally, Hindhaugh probably doesn't have a biological clock anymore.
