Firestone throws in the Towel


So perhaps you’ve already heard this – especially since BloggerLand is all awash ‘bout it... And thus I won’t try reinventing the wheel and just tell Yuhs that’s the Fact Jack! That Firestone has politely declined to extend its supply of those black majik ring thingy’s after the end of the 2011 IndyCar season...

As for who’ll become the TyreKing, err Heir Apparent to Flintstone in 2012 – I’d suppose you’d haveda say the field is wide open at the moment. Personally my favourite choice would be Michelin... Just seems too good to pass up after Oh, I dunno; ‘Somme-thun happened at the Speedway in 2005, as I can still recall laughing my ARSE off from nearby Portland International Raceway in my hotel’s parking lot; having felt extra good ‘bout having chosen the Portland Champ Car race over Indianapolis that year...

Not to mention having told Clyde how funny I thought it woulda been to see the Michelin Man walking ‘round the Brickyard deflated and with band aids all over himself whilst attending the ’06 USGP.

And I’ve heard Goodyear, Pirelli, Cooper and GASP! Even Hoosier as possible candidates... Hmm? Why not Yokohoma or Continental? With NO disrespect to Pirelli; BUTT! I think they’ll be a little too busy with another series called Formula 1...

Lastly, in deference to Jeffie’s questione ‘bout possible replacement names as Title Sponsor for the Indy Lights series... Why not Franks Energy Drinks? Hey! If Ronnie (Tony) George can make a comeback – then why not Franks? But seriously, why not Service Central...

Firestone is Tired of Racing
