A question came up on wikipedia and I'm wondering if any of you have a solid answer to it.
The article for Forsythe Racing says it started in 1983. However, Hector Rebaque won at Road America in 1982 in a car entered as Forsythe Racing and Danny Sullivan also ran some races in a car entered as "Forsythe-Brown" and Al Unser Jr. made his CART debut that year at Riverside in a car entered as "Forsythe Racing" with the same # as the one that Sullivan drove. The wikipedia article for Danny Sullivan lists his 1982 entries as being fielded by Forsythe-Newman (with the Newman linking to Paul Newman).
So here are my questions:
1. Did Forsythe have a CART IndyCar team in 1982 or was he just a sponsor?
2. If he didn't have a team, who actually fielded these cars?
3. Was Paul Newman actually involved in Sullivan's entries?
4. Who was "Brown"? (this one might be tougher)
