"So, some bloggers and a couple of TV types enter a chat room..."

I wouldn't be so bold as to presume I could promo tonight's IndyCar chat over at better than Roy Hobbson, so jet on over there and get the lowdown from the man himself.

What I will say is, that with such BS luminaries in attendance as Hobbson, PressDog, and "Indy Lindy" Thackston, there promises to be more #2 slung than in the entire Dirty Jobs "Poo Pot" episodeor, perhaps, vegan night at San Quentin.

I'll be heading over to, round about 11:00gas mask engagedyou?

Follow RHR Into Battle Against "The Big C"

10,000 Twitter followers equals
10 large for Racing for Cancer
Hey, tweeps, Ryan Hunter-Reay could use a hand. 

In honor of his mother, Lydia, who died from cancer in 2009, Hunter-Reay has, admirably, taken on the roll of global ambassador for Racing for Cancer—a nonprofit established to help battle the disease.

As a result, the group's founding sponsor, Inland Industrial Services Group, has pledged to donate $10,000 if RHR can reach 10,000 Twitter followers by October 2nd—a lofty goal, perhaps, but highly doable.

Here's where you play the hero: if you're not already following @RyanHunterReay (you should be anyway), please do so and, while you're at it, urge your own tweeps to do the same.  

It costs absolutely nothing and could go a long way toward giving "The Big C" the beat-down it so properly deserves. 

Thanks, peeps.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Wondering how the 2012 IZOD IndyCar chassis is progressing? Well, ponder no more. In an always-welcome gesture of transparency, Tony Cotman, IndyCar's '12 Car Project Manager, is going all "on the record" with a new blog for

Follow along for the next 18, or so, months as Cotman compellingly documents such über challenges as how to squeeze J-dub in comfortably, properly thrashing his new creation, and much, much more.

Get busy reading TC's first post—of what will hopefully be many—right here.
