      PT has some value as a black hat. Allmendinger? 6 people would notice.

        Is the title of this thread based on any reality, or is it just an attention getter?

              It is based in some reality. It hasn't been announced that he's out but they are going to be making changes.

                Sounds to me like it's not rosey over there. Obviously the speculation would lead to him coming back to open wheel. And I'm guessing more than six people would notice.

                You guys complain about the sport needing young american drivers, then you roll your eyes at the prospect of one coming here.

                Too bad not every driver hire could be as exciting as Pablo Donoso.

                  He's 0-3 qualifying this season in Sprint Cup...I believe it was in the Sunday Indy Star that he might be looking for work.

                    Correct....a young, talented American is not needed in Indy Car racing.
                    We want to relate to Americana. I went to the Indy 500 and that was Americana. I sat in various turns and I didn’t see any champagne drinkers, but I saw a lot of beer drinkers.

                        Maybe AJ can call up Gerry Forsythe, beg him for a job, then he, Forsythe, and Tracy can "hug it out" and go IndyCar racing.

                          I haven't read anywhere that 'dinger is our at TRB, link please.

                          I did see this at Jayski:
                          Red Bull could replace Allmendinger: Red Bull Racing is considering temporarily pulling #84-A.J. Allmendinger from his Toyota as it reevaluates that struggling program. Allmendinger failed to qualify for Sunday's race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, making him 0-for-3 on the season. In contrast, teammate #83-Brian Vickers has made all three races in the other Red Bull car. "We can't keep missing races. It's just not an option," said general manager Jay Frye, hired in January to turn around the second-year Red Bull program. We're looking at several different ideas, all aimed at figuring out what's wrong with that program, how we can fix it and how we can get that car into races. But it can't continue the way it is. It just can't." One of the options being considered is pulling Allmendinger from the seat and replacing him with a veteran who can help assess the program and get the car into races. Among the available drivers are Mike Skinner and Johnny Benson, who are currently both pitching in to fill an open seat at Bill Davis Racing, and Sterling Marlin and David Stremme. "We love A.J. and we're 100 percent committed to him and want to develop him," Frye said. "This is not at all giving up on A.J. But we just can't do nothing and risk having a season like that team had last year." Red Bull is also working on securing seat time for Allmendinger in Nationwide Series and Truck Series races to help his adaptation to NASCAR. Options in the Nationwide Series are rides in a Joe Gibbs Racing or Chip Ganassi car, and there could be some seat time available in a truck owned by Billy Ballew
                          "considering temporarily pulling #84-A.J. Allmendinger" doesn't mean that he is out, when there are 8 spots at best without anyone using a past champ, and one of the team cars is getting one of those there is only 6 or 7 spots left. MWR looks to be hooked up now, and are taking up three more. Tough times, how many races has the Wood Brothers made? Who would have thought Schrader would make that show. I don't see any on the availables list that I like better than AJA.

                          It's always been about the Indy 500!
                          I realize I have the right to remain silent, but don't have the ability or enough common sense to do so.:rolleyes:

                              I have a feeling once AJA is out of that seat he won't be returning to it.
