Driving in Circles

As the Open Wheel talent drain continues… It’s kind of entertaining to watch the progress of the “Three Musketeers.” Just keep in mind the phrase from the movie Dumb & Dumber: “Four lefts makes a Circle…”
MAC Montoya continues earning his “Darlington Stripes,” after slapping the wall once again while finishing 28th at Memphis…
Talk about becoming “Yesterday’s News.” MAC went fairly unnoticed as the Busch Series spotlight focused upon Sam Hornish Jr’s debut. MAC quietly finished 20th at Phoenix and now awaits his Nextel Cup debut at the Homestead season finale…
AJ Almendinger has gone 0 for 3 attempting to make his Nextel Cup debut. Reportedly Almendinger took Red Bull’s 9 million for 3 years NASCAR drive over Gerry Forsythe’s offer of 1 million per season for 5 years to remain in Champ Cars…
Reigning IRL Champion Sam Hornish Jr. made his Busch Series debut this past weekend at Phoenix. Hornish qualified 27th and spent the entire race struggling to finish. After briefly brushing the wall Hornish DNF’ed after becoming involved in a multiple car pile-up. Hornish was classified 36th. Hornish quipped: “I knew it was going to be difficult since it’s the very first race where I can’t see my wheels. That’s a pretty big change!”
