    Will Tyce be in the car for more races and will PDM be around for the entire season?
    Team KELLEY ROCKS! Get well soon Jason! Three in top ten at KY. Way to go Scott, Al, and Tony!

          Michael, thanks for the update. I enjoyed the "Life on the Road" articles on www.indyracing.com the past couple of weeks. Good luck to PDM in 2002!

            Lessee... when did PDM have their best success?

            When they had Hornish in the car.

            So who do they put in the car?

            Tyce "never finished on the lead lap" Carlson.

            Great move, PDM.

              Go TYCE! I got a favorite back! With it looking like no Sarah this year, glad to start with Tyce back in a seat, even if for a couple of races.

              TOP 5 TOP 5!

                Tyce is a great ambassador for the league. He is always a great interview and good fun too. ABC/ESPN missed the boat when they didn't offer Tyce a commentary or pit position on their broadcast team.

                Another American in the series doesn't hurt the original vision, which, by the way, is still on track.

                  Jerry ; "Tyce, how was the car today?"

                  Carlson "It was just great, Jerry, but I have to go chase some bad guys nows!"

                  Two fisted, race driving, bounty huntin' man. What a TV series that would make.

                    I don't care if he's the nicest guy in the world. It's not about that.

                    He's a crummy driver.

                    He hasn't won a race of any kind in years.

                    When will some of you folks focus more on the results the drivers simply don't have?

                      Great news.

                      I hope Tyce does well. Like most fans, I want to see him in a decent car before writing him off. We saw glimpses of a good driver in what can not be called great rides, but clearly this is probably his last chance, and is it in a ride that can compete? I hope so.

                        You know, I'd like to agree with you. The results should matter, and in some cases can break the tie. However, the example that NASCAR provides is that personable and marketable can overcome lousy performance. Why else would drivers like Michael Waltrip and others continue to have solid rides despite futility on the track. It sure would be nice to have both factors going for you (e.g. Helio)

                            In order to get a good ride, you have to prove yourself in a low-budget ride or in a lesser series (see Hornish, J. Lazier, Castro Neves, De Ferran, etc.).

                            I would be shocked if Carlson ever finishes on the lead lap again in the IRL. His driving talent is very minimal, as evidenced by his on-track performances. I'll give him one thing, he must be one **** of a salesman to keep getting shots.

                            My question, why doesn't PDM give Hines, Darland, Yeley, etc. this ride to see what they can do.

                              Tyce brings money, Junior doesn't. What's the question?
