DON’T SQUEEZE THE CHARMIN – DARIO!

Whale that just seemed too easy and too hard to pass up, after having read Jeffie’s story about Dario getting TP for 200... As in Dario “REO Speedwagon” Franchitti will apparently be making career start No. 200 in the ‘Big Carz: CART/IRL this Sunday, as it’s hard to believe it’s his 200th start, for which I’ve watched at least half of those, having avoided year’s 2003-07, but I digress...

As mention of Dario’s name always makes me flash back to those Good ‘Ol CART Dazes and the Team KOOL Green duo of ‘PT ‘N Dario, as in Mr. Chrome Horn, nee Paul Tracy as Dario’s sidekick, Err teammate at one of the then Big 3, as in TCGR & Team Penske... Whale, actually I guess Penske was in the doldrums back then, circa 1996-2000, which was largely a Target Chip Ganassi Racing affair, with the Team KOOL Green Boyz nipping at its heels, along with the Players/Forsythe Team, eh? And my favourite Shell liveried Team Rahal cars for Kenny Brack...

Guess Dario picked the right sponsor this weekend as he can go blow his nose over getting “Cough-Cough!” Blocked in Qualifying by Ryan Briscoe... BOO-HOO-HOO!
