The Dale Coyne "Gong Show"

After scribblin' here at No Fenders 'bout DCR's (Dale Coyne Racing) Caped Crusaders Francesco & Carlos, for which I have NO clue on why 'Ol 'R, aka Robin Miller calls the latter "GrumpyCat."

Listening via Zed Internetz to the Indy GP the last two days, I was reminded 'bout another ex-Andretti Autosport MRTI (Mazda Road To Indy) Alum doing the radio thingy as Driver Analyst this weekend, the very enjoyable Zachery Veach, who's currently looking for a B-I-G' CARZ (IndyCar) ride.

And Zach's ex-teammate Mathew Brabham has also filled in as radio show Driver Analyst, as both past Indy Lights race winners seek to continue their Open Wheel Racing careers logically in Indy Cars, yet both lacking the obligatory funding levels needed, i.e.; Sponsorship.

As notice I didn't even mention another past AA Indy Lights standout named Stefan 'Stork Wilson, as I'm sure the list is a mile long for aspiring IndyCar drivers, right? But hey, if Stefan's B-I-G' Brother Justin, "Symona-Symona" (de Silvestro) or J.R. Hildebrand can't  find the necessary Dinero...

Meanwhile, according to Miller, there's now three names in the ring for Dale Coyne's remaining two currently unoccupied Indy 500 drives, as ex-IndyCar Piloto Vitor Meira was a surprise to Mwah. With Thy Leggy 'Juan, nee Katherine Legge also in the frame.

And cannot say how much listening to 'Aussie James Davidson during his interview with Robin made me think of another 'OZ BAD ARSE racer named Daniel Ricciardo! As James is seeking to do what he's calling his version of "The Double," nee fulltime Sports Car Gigs along with a "One-off" at Mother Speedway! For which I sincerely hope he gets the call from Dale...
