I'll see what I can do. That's always a tough one since the friends and family tickets get scarfed up, as its close to home. Indy is usually easier. I'll let you know.

Glad you caught this...my DVR automatically set itself for the race, but the guide only had the show at 9pm listed as "Pregame" with no explanation.

Should have been "Pre-race", but I'll be watching for it from now on.

Can't expect FoxSports to know too much about racing now that they're primarily a stick and ball sport channel...

It was funny at Loretta's (where this pic was taken) how every one was talking about his girth. Then he went out and completely housed everyone, barely breaking a sweat. Don't let the extra gravity muscle fool you, the "Angry Elf" can still get it. He got pissed when I kept making JoJo Keller comments.

No doubt... last year they showed a "practice" lap with RC on one of the SX courses and he can still git-r-dun!

His kids attend the school I work at; see him once every now and then in the mornings. He may be retired, but still looks reasonably fit and could still probably put down one flyer among the fast guys. He's got a good bit of humor to him too, especially when he came in for "career day" at our school

He is definitely one of the most approachable racers/people I've ever met. We had a backyard BBQ and mini bike session at a friends house years ago. I didn't tell any body he was coming over. You should have seen their faces. On stock XR 50's he was just passing everyone, especially the local heroes. He would come motoring up behind you and grab your shirt tail or slap your kill switch, laughing all the time. Fun guy, fun night.
