Marco should have gone well befor but was chicken and didnt want to risk his last place. If he had done this in stead of going in line and pulling out several times, RHR would have also gone and legitamately been in the race. Michael should have made his driver go. As tracy said Barratt Jackson will auction pole position for the next indy

Even though the rules permit this it is ridiculous...
If it were the same team, maybe... but this?
AJ, hope you read this... hope you feel ashamed of yourself! Boooooooooooooooo

Although this seems like a slight of hand Texas poker hand, no car owner can afford to bank roll an unsponsored race car for the biggest race of the year. Kudos to Bruno for not only being a great race car driver (19th on the grid on short notice is nothing to sneeze at), but also for being a class act and a team player. The best of luck Bruno, and I hope that AJ makes good on this one with a ride later in the season.

I don't like it, but it's within the rules and I would hate to see, RHR's sponsors drop out of Indy Car racing over this. Money is the fuel of racing and without DHL and Citris, there wouldn't be an AA car for RHR.

Everybody remember 7-11 dropped out and AA lost TK.

Tried finding a "contact us" or something on AJ Foyt's site but there's nothing to be found.
I know it wouldn't change anything but sure would have made me feel better if I could write them my feelings for such a low blow.

AJ you're a whimp...
