Latest post of the previous page:

More important question is.....is this set in stone or just a "promotional" li'l gig to check the waters? 'Never said anything specific on that one minute video.

I'll start Googlin'.......

Yea, I actually thought at first it was one of those goofy anti-climatic promotions. Like 'Jimmie's coming to Indycar...as a driver coach' or something like that.

Just curious how one can say "I'm going to IndyCar in '21 & '22, now I'm committed to finding sponsors."

That ain't how it works, in the real world anyway...... Image

Yep.... its like buying a house; get your finances in order to know what money you can borrow / spend, then go house hunting.
I would have thought he would have cleared with his sponsors if /what their commitment is or gone to the sponsor with a proposal based on what the team needs to run the car at X rounds. Until he has the money from his backers committed it aint going to happen.

You'd be correct, Hertz was meant to sponsor those races but they went bankrupt earlier this year.

It's also a throwback to the late Ricky Hendrick and Brain Vickers, so they at least they made the best of a bad situation.

Sam Mayer wins the ARCA East series championship, there were only 6 races, and he won 5 of them, finishing second in the other, almost a perfect season.

Ran for 45 laps a 3300lb car a road course without power steering. Respect for that.
