According to the announcers on the SpeedTV Atlantics coverage, Jon Fogarty turned down the Rahal IRL ride to stay in Atlantics. I hope Jon gets a shot at Champ Car some day. :thumbup:

I have a lot of respect for Jon on that move!

I guess he cares about his health more than his paycheque. Good on 'em! :thumbup: I haven't followed his career as much as some of the others in Atlantic, but I hope he find his way somewhere to move to - maybe sportscars?

That guy needs to be in Champ Cars.

That left me wondering about his reason for not taking the deal. Was it because it's the IRL, or because it's Bobby Rahal????

Perhaps he did not like the prospect of titanium plates and screws holding his spine immobile.

Just a wild guess.

He skipped the offer b/c he knows what Bobby expects from his "young prospects" in the trailer at night and he didn't want to learn to use kneepads :rofl:
