Graham Rahal doesn’t much care for these recent outbursts in IndyCar. Fisticuffs and other such hullabaloo may fly in NASCAR, but that is because they are uneducated & slovenly. No, such tomfoolery reflects poorly on the gentlemanly ways of our sport, as we are “expected to act more professional, more buttoned up and more educated to appeal to a much higher demographic.” (He then tossed a shiny gold bullion coin at a peasant boy and ordered him to “FETCH ME THE GRANDEST GOOSE IN ALL OF CAMBRIDGE!!”)
It’s “good for making headlines,” he writes. But “it doesn’t have a place in IndyCar.”
INDUBITABLY!! Well said, Graham. We’re IndyCar, damn it … not homeless mouth-breathers. Our palates are refined & dignified, and our races have no use for “headlines.” (That bothersome tripe is for poor people & dullards!!) Rather, we prefer the highfalutin hills of Mid-Ohio, “where you stare at the clock waiting for it to be over,” as Graham so correctly describes it. Hear hear.
