  • AJ IV Pic Thread Deleted

    It sure is nice to be able to delete an entire thread when it degenerates into anti-Foyt pizzing match.

    The pic of the grandson and his Siver Crown car was intended to be a positive contribution to the IRL's forum and for the enjoyment of IRL fans.

    I took that pic after talking to the kid about his car and his future in open wheel racing. It really didn't matter a hill of beans to me who his grandfather was or what his grandfather did. I was moved that a 17 year old kid, ANY 17 year old kid full of pizz and vinegar, was pumped and excited about going racing in that Silver Crown car.

    So, I thought I'd share a personal pic with IRL fans.

    Obviously, a mistake.

    So, if anyone wants to b*tch and snipe at Foyt then start your own dammned thread to do it in.

    Or park you azzes at SpudNut or 7G.

    Partially my fault, KO. Sorry, I did like the pic...

        Knockoff,

        I sure would like to hear more about your visit to Foyt's shop and see some more pictures. There's no bigger Foyt fan around than me.

            I didn't see the photo or the thread but went to Springfield last summer to watch. AJ 4. He had it qualified his first lap and did a rookie mistake in three and put it in the wall. Oh well the kid looks like he's got what it takes.

              Wasn't there a problem with the throttle linkage that led to the crash? Seems I remember something about " a crewmember " adjusting it .....

                And KO , thanks for the pic. It's a shame that the Foyt haters can't be content with SpudNut and 7G .

                  What am I missing here? Isn't Foyt an IRL team owner?
                  Why do we "hate" anyone!!! Foyt is not my favorite, but the man has contributed more to Open Wheel racing than the "great majority" by far. And I'd love to shake his hand and say "Thank You, AJ"!!!
                  BTW, KO, the "pics" were great and right on target. Young Foyt could do a lot worse than follow in AJ's footsteps.

                      cps , IMO the thread didn't go downhill because of IRL fans.....

                          KO I liked the photos! I hate how people make a good post into a bad post real fast.

                            Alas, you're probably right. I followed it for a while and got busy. The next thing I knew KO started this thread and the other one was gone...

                              So......any chance of the Silver Crown pic showing up again?
                              I only got to see it once, briefly. Was hoping to get another look, but instead I see here that the thread has been nuked.
