IndyCar Pitnotes

Guessing Y’all have heard that Ana ‘BIA Figarito Beatriz is out for this weekend’s Barber Motorsports Park race – with surprise substitute Simon Pagenaud filling in for her at Dreyer & Reinbold Racing. As ‘BIA suffered a broken wrist at St Pete, albeit she raced on thru the adversity of it all; Hmm? Can you even remotely ponder Princess Perma Pout doing such a thing, eh?

And it was funny how Randy “the CandyMann” Bernard, who was on Autosport Radio Tuesday night announced he had to leave early in order to speak with Highcroft Racing Owner David Duncan... Hmm? Naturally I made the assumption that it’d be Highcroft Racing that Pagenaud would be making his Indy Car debut with. So I can only guess that perhaps this meeting has something to do with Highcroft running in the near future, perhaps as a Tune-up for a full 2012 ICS season? And may be? Just may be – we’ll see Duncan, Pagenaud and the Highcroft Racing gang at The Speedway this May? (Just a guess...)

And don’t forget that you can catch the Indy Lights race “live” on Versus this Sunday morning, as the teaser for the big Carz who’ll follow immediately afterwards – with my TV guide saying Indy Lights from 10AM-12PM; Indy Cars 12noon-3PM. Both times are PACIFIC and as always: CHECK your local listings... Unless you live Up North Eh! In ‘KanaDuh, or wherever else there AIN’T NO STINKIN’ LIVE WEBCASTS. C’mon comca$t – figure it out, wills Yuh!

Also, have NO idea who the New & Improved Versus broadcast crew’s gonna be? As all I’ve heard is that Wally dallenbach’s Onboard, which I’d already guessed, since he used to do CART/Champ Car broadcasts for The Peacock, nee NBC way back when. Hmm? Wonder what Kurty ‘N Kevin will haveda say tonight on Trackside, eh?
