  • Greg Ray Leaves Foyt

    TSO is reporting that Greg Ray has cut his ties with AJ Foyt Racing. Good for greg and Foyt it was obvious that this marriage was NOT working.

    hmmmm.... what about that AJ IV GUY??

    Should be fun anyways!

            Do you guys really think AJIV is ready for IRL action after only 4 IPS races? Especially considering how uncompetitive the 41 car has been. AJ said he would have to test AJIV a ton over the winter if he decided to put him in a seat next year.

            Honestly, Foyt should just run Dare. He has won a race and been plenty competitive at several stops. Why run Salazar if he has no chance of winning?

              A teaser is:

              TSO just posted the latest on Greg Ray at Foyt's.

              IMO, of course.

                From Greg Ray's web site:

                A quote from Greg: “The reality of the situation is that right now we are a three- car team operating on a single-car budget....."

                  Greg sounds like a wise man at this point. I know it will kill him to not run Texas, but at this point he needs to get his ducks in a row for next year in a competitive car.

                    Guess it will never happen, but I would love to see him brought in as an oval track specialist at Rockingham and Fontana. (NASCAR brings in road course specialists all the time.)

                      His website makes it sound like he's planning on being with Foyt next year, and that since he's only ran a limited schedule this year and is so far down in the points that he's being a gentleman and stepping out of the car to allow the team to concentrate on Dare for the remainder of the season.

                      Is that how you interpret it, or am I just reading a positive spin into this?

                        It's always hard to tell what is real and what is "spin" from a press release, but that is how it sounds.

                        Hopefully Greg will come back strong next year.

                        A good off-season testing program and some testing prior to the race weekends would help.

                        Heck, that would help the whole Foyt team.

                          Basically he is looking for other opportunities - but that could include Foyt in 2003

                            Salazar has as good a shot at winning as any other driver in the #11:

                            No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

                              Greg somehow usually manages to find money to run the Texas races.

                              That being the case, who has a seat for sale?
