  • Little Al is certain for the full season!

    Well, someone needs to bring it back up again on a fresh thread. Robbin Miller reported on RPM 2NITE that Little Al is most likely going to the #7 Kelley car, leaving Greg Ray out. But, if that's not the case, RM also said that Al will be at the opener and every following race afterwards.

      Wouldn't Robin Miller love to undermine Kelly and a former IRL champion? Wouldn't robin Miller love to undermine the entire IRL? I'm starting to think he will say anything that suits cart.

        Do you think there is any connection with this "Al rumor" and what was reported on TSL that the final day of testing in Phoenix Scott Sharp was testing but Ray's shop was all closed-up and th rig gone?

            Educatate me, Doc. How does Robin Miller's comments about the possibility that Al Unser, Jr. will displace Greg Ray undermine the IRL or do anything for CART?

                This is the rumour that won't die. To me, the Kelley team will look like an amatuer hour operation if they drop Ray for Unser at the last minute after all that they have said about Ray recently.

                On the other hand, if I were a team owner and Unser were available, I would sign him.

                  Not really. Kelley didn't know 2-time 500 champion Little Al was going to be available when he hired Ray.

                    As much as I would love to see Al Jr. get a quality ride, I have to admit it will look preety silly having Greg get dumped this late into the game.

                    IF TG is shelling out all these bucks to get AL Jr. a ride, why not put that money to Team Panther for a second car? or a third car at Kelly? Or a second car at Hemelgarn?

                    I love Al Jr., but this is almost getting embarrasing. With his name, talent, and two wins the last two years in not that great of equipment, why can't he get a ride on his own?

                    And how many years does this go on?

                      If Greg gets replaced, and at this point that's a big if considering all the rumors around lately,IMO the reasons will be destruction of equiptment,Unser became available,sponsor money isn't enough to run Greg this year or maybe a little of all these points put together. Should be an interesting next 18 days though.

                        There was no Delphi signage on the sidepods of Ray's car at Fontana!

                            We'll know more by the 1st of March, I think?

                              Keep a close eye on the sponsor of the car is Unser goes to Kelly. It will be interesting to see the IMS connection to the sponsor.
