Some Inbox of Opportunity questions belong to the masses. To the people — but not the dumb ones. Because sometimes, a question comes along with such immense scope & importance, no one person should be entrusted with the power to answer it. Especially when that one person is me.
Who, make no mistake, is exceedingly dumb.

This is one of those questions:
Part of what made the previously united CART series was some individual rivalries. Too often, it seems like these guys genuinely like hanging out.
How can we bring some rivalries into the series, most specificaly between the two young Americans, Marco Andretti and Graham Rahal? Let Graham hang out with Ludacris? Would this infuriate Marco enough? Force young Marco to grow a Bobby Rahal, circa 1986, stache?
Any other suggestions you have to fuel some rivalries in gasoline alley would be much appreciated.

I don’t know. If someone pistol-whipped someone else’s girlfriend, that’d certainly get the Rivalry Train rolling I’d think. But then again, pistol-whipping is my solution to everything. Except parenting problems. That’s when I prefer the soft feel of nun-chucks.
I’m out on this question. You’re in. The floor is yours. Go make us some rivalries.
