One of the Nicest Guys on the grid you'll ever meet...
What's that 'Ol adage 'bout better late than never? As it's great news having read via the Indianapolis Star's Motorsports "Insider" Jim Ayello that 1996 Indy 500 winner Buddy Lazier will indeed be making his 20th start in the Indy 500 this year thanks to Hoops legend' Jeff Teague's financial backing.
And although I don't expect Buddy to make the Fast-9 Shootout for Pole Sunday, Y'all should never count him out come Race Day! As the cagey veteran should at least be mixing it up with The Big Boyz', especially if the Bowtie runners have a surprise up Thar sleeves...
Good Luck Buddy!
