    Maybe this should be sent to all the new CC drivers who have never raced ovals. They will dirty their pants.

              I think I will take the qualified, expert opinion of a 2-time Formula 1 World Champion (from a time when the DRIVER made the difference), Indy car champ and 2-time Indy 500 winner over the ill-informed judgements of an internet forum wag.

                  If you'll go back and look closely, the internet forum wag wasn't disagreeing with Emmo. Rather, he was commenting on the remarks of another ill-informed internet forum wag.

                    Easy on the hyperbole, VT.

                    Back in those days, CART ran more than a few ovals a season and JPM was acclimated. Not to mention that he is a first class shoe.

                    You act as if these guys chose to be in CART or Champ Car versus Indy Car. They didn't. They took the best deal they could get and drove there (when there were paying gigs still left en masse in CART/CCWS).

                    Think of what was said by Emmo, what I said in a complimentary fashion about JPM, and then think about Franck Perrera or Dan Clarke taking it into the first turn at Indy....

                    ...you still think there won't be any dirty drawers upon the oval neophytes in that crowd? Think again...Franck and Dan are not JPM.

                      So now ovals are tougher to drive than road courses? It's all relative.

                          Tougher to *drive,* no. Tougher to *race,* well, that's a whole 'nother ballgame.

                            I think you need to go back and look at the history of CART, most open wheel good road racers have very little trouble adjusting to ovals.

                            And the really good and great road racers have little trouble at all.

                            The biggest problem they will all have in 2008 is the lack of space when passing the moving chicanes on some of the smaller ovals.

                              Why do these conversations always remind me of JPM cruising to victory among and around the early IRL oval greats?

                              Perhaps it was the big grin that prompts it.
