The Gentleman from Scotland!

Well what a weekend it was. Rain and strategy wins the Indianapolis 500 and a true gentleman wins the race. Dario Franchitti was victorious for Andretti/Green racing. After much back and forth and a three hour rain delay it was a real race to the finish.

I think what impressed me the most from the win is how truley happy Dario was to have won at Indy. I was also so impressed with the sportmanship and friendship of the entire Andretti/Green racing team. Growing up in Indiana I have always been an AJ Foyt fan and my all time favorite phrase was Andretti's car is beginning to slow....

But as I have watched Micheal Andretti become and owner and a driver and seen him build a true TEAM I have been impressed. While I will always have a spot in my heart for AJ Foyt and his team I think I am slowly becoming a fan or Marco, Tony, Danica and of course Dario.

Great job to the entire team, you make all Hoosiers proud....

Also great job to Casey Mears for winning the 600. I will always be a Stewart fan but it was nice to see if Smoke could not hold the lead to see a first timer and a Mears win on Memorial Day...

Great weekend for racing.....

PEACE DUDE!

I'm pretty sure you were writing in English, but even using Google's translation service I couldn't make out what any of it meant, other than you seem quite pleased with the outcome.

Which is all that counts really :)

Good sportsmanship is hard to come across anymore as well as an athletes true passion for their sport. Now a days it seems to be mostly about the money. I agree that money is important, but it’s the passion and competitive nature of the athletes that drive sports.

My claim to fame with racing is that I used to belong to the same Health/Social club as Chip Ganassi and we used to play basketball together every week. OOOOOOhhhhhhh
