INDY 500: Lazier Partners to run with touching sponsorship partner...

Was originally notified of this by No Fenders 'Offical Photographer 'CARPETS whilst in Austin, who's been good enough to introduce me to Buddy Lazier more than once at the Flagroom Bar & Grill - as I still can't get over the thought of me conversing 'bout F1 with Buddy and the legendous' "Dr. Who," aka Tim Wardrop were having lighthearted  banter in general in the Flagroom, which sadly IMS seems intent upon discontinuing its long cherished traditions...

Having badgered Y'all on multiple occasions towards my faltering eyesight - as a visually impaired word Hack, which I've scribbled previously 'bout in;

Obviously 1996 Indy 500 winner Buddy Lazier's story about his 2014 sponsor, whose 'Deckle's (decals) adorning his Dallara DW12-Chevrolet's sidepods for the University of Iowa's Stephen A. Wynn Institute for Vision Research strike a very personal connection to myself, of which even more ironic is that billionaire Stephen A. Wynn  struggles from the very same eye affliction as Mwah!

thus naturally, I'll be rootin' for the No. 91 Lazier Partners entry this May, as who'd a thunk I-T! That Buddy Lazier would be the old man at Mother Speedway this May?


Kudos to No Fenders 'Offical Photographer 'CARPETS for Hookin' me up with Buddy & asking for picture + autograph. And thanxs to Buddy for being so accommodating!
