Penske kept him, but on the Indycar team. Wonder if he will make t back to NASCAR? A second row start is not bad!

Hardly ...
Fast forward to Sunday’s 94th Indy 500. There are nine Americans in the starting lineup of 33 cars, an all-time low. There were 11 last year. They’ve become a vanishing breed, a trend that can be traced to Brazilian Emerson Fittipaldi’s Indy victory in 1989, the first by a non-American since Hill.

Just ran across a hand written note my father received years ago thanking him for taking him fishing Mom and dad had gone north fishing at the same lodge were a group of men moose hunting. They never saw a moose but mom and dad saw them while fishing.
One of their party offered to go out with dad while mom slept in. Dad asked him what he did He replied he raced cars. To who which dad replied but what do you do for a living ?

They had a great time fishing and saw two moose.
Oh the note was simply signed Andretti
