Indy Car fodder

So the seasons over and Y’all know the Championship results… But did I hear Bob Jenkins right? As I swear I heard him say that Alex “Pink” Lloyd has a full time ride with Newman Haas Lanigan Racing in 2010 during the Broadcast…

Along with Will Power being given a full time gig in Team Penske’s third IRL entity next year as Penske’s Grand Am Sports Car crew will move over to the IRL, which seems to be unconfirmed at the moment, since its expected The Captain will at least run the Rolex 24 at Daytona next January?

Not to mention Sarah Fisher Racing’s expansion plans, while the verdicts still out on Hideki Mutoh and his Formula Dream sponsorship for 2010…

And did Y’all catch Dario on Wind Tunnel Sunday night? To which when asked by Dave Despain if he’d caused any modern IRL lore by celebrating, Dario replied that he’d been out with Dixon, Wheldon and Kanaan ‘til 5AM… After snickering nothing good ever comes outta hanging out with them, since somewhere during the weekend’s festivities, TK’s reported to have thrown Dario into a swimming pool… Yet, there’s no word on whether or not any bicycles were sawed in half?

And I liked Dave’s gentile dig about Dario’s future plans… Asking him if he’d may be going to MOTO GP with all of his Motorcycling skills… To which Dario coyly replied I’m not so good with my Motorcycling Dave, but I do enjoy watching MOTO GP…

And “”Mr. CHiPs” of Indy Racing Revolution has an entertaining look upon how the Dashley ‘Juan, Err Mr. REO Speedwagon, nee Dario Franchitti’s improvable victory is being viewed abroad, click here.

Yet, best of all was the eternal optimist Robin Miller’s take upon the IRL switching over to a slightly biased Road Course/Street Circuit calendar… HELL! TCGR & Penske won all of the Ovals this year, they’ll win them ALL next year and then again ‘N again…

So may be the switch will be a good thing, since the only driver to prevent the Ganassi-Penske “Clean Sweep” was Justin Wilson’s breakout victory for Dale Coyne at Watkins Glen…
