World Class Silly Season

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 10:11 am

Depending on the silly season rumor you pay attention to the most, it is possible Rubens Barrichello, a current Honda Formula One driver and former winner with Ferrari, could drive an Indy Car in 2009. The rumor mill has him joining Andretti-Green Racing or testing with Roger Penske.

Whether either is credible or not depends upon a lot of things. The F-1 season is not over yet (and for that matter neither is Indy Car) so it is always best to take a wait and see attitude. That kind of move would not be unprecedented (Nigel Mansell) and Rubens would be most welcome given the Brazilian welcoming committee that would be there to greet him.

There would, of course, be a faction screaming about the lack of Americans. It is fairly confirmed that a NASCAR journeyman, Stanton Barrett, is also joining Indy Racing next year. Frankly, I’d rather have a Stanton Barrett than a Marty Roth behind the wheel any day, although it is not a stretch to believe a Marty Roth OWNED team could make a mark.

Silly season is shaping up to be rather enjoyable for a change as the chicken little idiots who portend doom year after year continue to be silenced in increasingly embarrassing ways.
