    Who Would You Pick For Your Fantasy Driving Team?

    Jeff Olson poses the question: http://www.versus.com/blogs/indycar/...-driving-team/

    I'll say Tracy, Kanaan, and Bryan Clauson

    That is as good as it gets. The three best driver in all of American motorsports history.

    My team would be Kanaan, Simona and Clauson. Kanaan would be beneficial to Simona for ovals and both Simona and Kanaan would be great teachers to CLauson for all tracks. Clauson has shown maturity and that he can drive anything with wheels. He has patience and knowledge that simply can't be taught. That would be a super team in it's second year of existence.

    I'd team up PT and Bourdais!

    The obvious choice would be A.J. Foyt and Parnelli Jones but also on my A list would be; Gary Bettenhausen, Bobby Unser, and Rick Mears.

    If we are talking active Indycar drivers then a big check mark in the "None of the above" category for me.

    TK, Eddie Sachs, and Lloyd Ruby.

    One of them would just have to win the 500.

    If we're sticking to the living, I'd say TK, Wheldon, and developmentally, either Simona or Baguette. I wouldn't mind getting Carpenter in there for the ovals, either.

    Sadly with their luck at the 500, if they were the only three cars in the race, their horrible luck would still prevent them from winning. Great choices though.

    Man, you may be right. It would be a heck of a race, though!

    You know, I've become a huge Eddie Sachs fan, reading about his wonderful personality and life. I like to think that he finally got his face up on the celestial version of the Borg-Warner. I guess it wouldnt' be the 500, though, if we didn't have stories of heartache and near-misses like that, though.

    ME, Mario, and AJ.

    Current:

    ME (again?), TK, Franchitti

    A.J. Foyt getting the oval wins. Michael Andretti getting the wins on road courses. And Parnelli Jones, because besides my fantasy team, I would add fantasy dirt ovals to my fantasy season.

    Is anybody ACTUALLY READING the article in reference? If we want to talk about all drivers in history it's a different deal. The writer of this story included a short list of choices.

  22. #22
    TK, Wheldon, and Hornish, because I want to win the 500, not the championship. Plus I want to watch the fistfights in the motorhome.
    The fans should be the absolute last people considered on any decision that could effect a participant. Doc Austin

    Ok, I'm glad I read the article for referance. I was going to pick Stewart and Montoya, but now, dangit, I'm going with

    Wilson and Tracy!

    Servia is the backup driver, or maybe I can get him in a car later in the year, but he's damn good too.

  24. #24
    I think it's fair to pick Hornish if you want him, even though Curt is a nice enough guy not put him on the draft list.

    After seeing the list, I'd pick Tracy, Rahal, and Simona.
    We drive 800 miles every year to see them go 500 miles. And we're glad to do it.
