Carlin's Newest Young Blood?



Certainly Y'all have heard the riveting IndyCar News about 'Ol "Narly Pinball," aka Charlie Kimball returning for a muted five races outing this season with Carlin, Righto?


As it was Good 'Ol Jeffie' of O.L.D. Fame, nee One Lap Down, Wherever Yuhs Are? Who came up with another of his Oh, So Clever Driver Nicknames, which I borrowed for another No Fenders story...


Whilst I'm ARSE-Sumin' I'm not the only "Eagled Eye" Indy Cars Aficionado who spotted this, and I'm Freakin Blind to Boot; Hya! But My Gal Lucy', My ARSE-Steamed Screen Reader cooed the name RC Enerson tabbed to drive the #23 Kimball occupies at Carlin to Mwah, when reading Marshall Pruett's Racer.com article upon Circuit Of The Americas (COTA) IndyCar Pre-season testing.

Having read Pruett's COTA prose prior to the first day of Indy Cars Laguna Seca Winter Test outing, (Feb 8th) where Enerson ran 61-laps for Carlin and seems to signal his arrival at Trevor Carlin's Squad...

As I'd been ARSE-Sumin' it would be Jordan King getting the bulk of Seat-time aboard the No. 23 this season, since it's been one of the worst kept secrets that Kimball was not gonna be Fulltime at Carlin this year.

But Enerson's name was a surprise to Mwah, albeit perhaps King will be in this ride too? As apparently Carlin will be pullin' a Dale Coyne rotating Driver scheme this season.

As Enerson last impressed the IndyCar masses when Driving briefly for Dale Coyne Racing (DCR) during 2016, making his IndyCar Debut at Mid Ohio, before two further outings at Watkins Glen and Sonoma.

Although Enerson's short lived move to Indy Cars was controversial, having started the season in Indy Lights for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports - before effectively Breaking his Contract after the Freedom 100 to graduate to thee B-I-G CARZ', for which I tend to recall Thar was some legal wranglings over this between Schmidt and RC. And Nah, NO "Uncola" Jokes here...

As it would be good to see Enerson back in the Indy Cars field, along with Jordan King, as obviously both of these aspiring Young Guns would like to G-O Racin' Fulltime. Not to mention Kimball also, meaning Carlin's got plenty 'O talent to choose from.

As Dare I Say It? Kimball could be a valuable addition at the fledgling Juncos Racing team, and definitely lend a Helping Hand to their future maturation in Indy Cars...

And although it seems that Enerson has the inside track for filling in part of the remaining IndyCar season races aboard the No. 23 when Kimball's not driving. Now comes the conundrum 'O Pato O'Ward's availability. As I really hope O'Ward can find a seat in Indy Cars...
