Spin ‘N Win?

Did you see AJ Almendinger’s big spin? On Saturday while “channel surfing,” I ran across the Craftsman Trucks race on SPEED. I happened to tune in just-in-time to see Almendinger get the air taken off his rear and cause a really, really big WRECK…

Meanwhile in another twist of fate, apparent former IRL driver Buddy Rice will occupy Almendinger’s vacated seat at Forsythe Racing for the Champ Car season finale in Mexico City, Mexico. (Nov. 12) Rice is hopeful that a good showing could lead to a full time position with Forsythe in 2007…
Almendinger is practically assured of finishing second overall behind three time series Champion Sebastian Bourdais. With Justin Wilson most likely not racing due to his broken wrist, Almendinger’s finishing position seams secure since Wilson currently lies third overall. The closest battle in the Champ Car points race is for fourth place overall between ex-Forsythe driver Mario Dominguez and “Sugar Ray” (Paul) Tracy. Will RuSPORT substitute a driver for Wilson in Mexico?
