George Bignotti passes away.

Some thought he was too cranky to die. But even a 7 time Indy winner has to pass on eventually.

George Bignotti passed away on Sept. 27th.

Nice story on indycar.com:

Re: Lakeside photos from George Green collection

Nice stuff! The pic of the midget under the guard rail is scary stuff.

My dad had such nice hand writing. (#15 Morris Musich Offy) I wonder what my problem is? Mine is terrible.

Thanks...

Re: Longhorn Racing LR-01 Indy Car For Sale

Re: Mini Stock Racing - 1970's & Beyond

My Dad was the Service Manager at Thoroughbred Datsun at the time when that #42 Datsun 510 was built. He helped build that one. I think Brad Bradford painted it. I got to see it when it was being...

Re: AJ Foyt outdrives them all!

What always impressed me about AJ was how he raced on dirt. He would dive in the turn, find his line and once in his line,that steering wheel barely moved. Everyone else was sawing the steering...

Re: Jim Rathmann

I just read a nice tribute to Jim Rathmann, on AJ Foyt's web site (www.ajfoytracing.com).
Some nice words and a couple of funny stories. Worth a look.

Re: Great Sprint Car Video!

Thanks Mitch. I have to agree. The winged sprints just look clumsy to me. The nonwinged cars, like these, just seem to dance out there.
Helps to have drivers who know how to dance too.

Re: 1971 Indy 500 Pace Car Crash

Good think Foyt is driving the pace car, instead of Donald Trump. Otherwise we might hae a cracked up Camaro this year.

Re: A J Foyt tribute

What always amazed me, when I watch this stuff, is how little he moved his hands, when racing on dirt. So much more smoother than many of the others. Smooth is fast.

Do you notice, AJ's hands barley moved going through the corners. That is smooth! Dad always said "...smooth is fast."
