I am so glad they replaced Donald Trump with A.J. Foyt as the pace car driver to start off the Indy 500 this year. Regardless of your political affiliation, Donald Trump has simply been making a fool of himself. The Indy 500 is a chance for us to relax on the weekend and watch some great racing. For more information, be sure to click this link for more information. We don’t need Donald Trump coming in and trying to turn the weekend into something about him. Donald Trump is all about himself, so it is great to have him replaced with A.J. Foyt to drive the pace car.
Who better than one of the best Indy car racers ever? A.J. Foyt won 4 Indy 500 races during his lengthy racing career. I was never a fan of A.J. when he used to race, however I truly respect what he has accomplished in his racing career. I look forward to seeing Foyt circle around the racetrack one more time.
It is very funny to hear how the 2011 Camaro SS pace car Foyt will be driving this year is faster than the Indy car he won the 500 with in 1961. Could Foyt even be a contender if he was a young guy today just getting into racing? Maybe, but either way Foyt deserves to lead the cars to the green flag more than any other person they could of chose.
54 years in a row Foyt has either raced the Indy 500 or been an owner of a car racing at Indy. The knowledge and history Foyt has is tremendous, and I hope the announcers give him some airtime on TV with an interview. It will be fascinating to hear what Foyt has to say. I also hope he shares some of the humorous situations that occurred with him when he was a racer.
A.J. Foyt is 76 years old, and for all we know this could truly be his last lap around the Indianapolis Speedway. Who knows how old Foyt will live to be, but either way I am sure he will be grinning the entire time he is on the track in the pace car.
