Indianapolis “News” and Notes

—The hot new rumor has Robert Kauffman (the money-man behind Michael Waltrip Racing) either aligning or combing his team with Ganassi or RCR.  Furniture Row Motorsports would then move to Toyota, taking MWR’s place as TRD’s #2 team behind Joe Gibbs Racing.  No word on how this affects the future of Premium Motorsports.

—Sure, it’s kinda lame that stray water bottles are the big story in Nascar, but at least it’s not IndyCar, where the big story is how people should be worried about talking about big stories.

—Wednesday Night’s Truck Series race at Eldora featured wild on-track action, more than a few frayed nerves, and a relative unknown winner in Christopher Bell.  Be sure to memorize this, as you’ll never hear anyone on NBC mention it.

—Speaking of the Truck Series race, guess what?  If you’re doing free advertising for a billionaire, you’re a schmuck.
