Looking at the latest issue of SportsCar (SCCA), at the lame ad on the back cover, with the Toyota IRL drivers under glass as if in a museum.

Has the great Sam Hornish even won a race since he signed for Penske?

Sorry, I'm too lazy too search, plus I'm at work and have no way to run to a shower after visiting *RL sites.

Also, I don't really care that much.

He the season opener at Homestead last year - his first race with Penske.

Since, then - nothing.

What I found interesting about that ad was how they prioritized the drivers. The pecking order with Toyota is pretty clear there.

Interesting you noticed that too, Joe Bob - it's precisely what led to me creating this thread.

Don't you remember, the ABC broadcast team was proclaiming Cornish as the next coming of Jesus when he became the first driver to win in his first outing for Penske. :rolleyes:

For those of us who haven't seen the ad, what is the pecking order?

Dixon front and center - flanked by Helio and Carp.

Second row - Briscoe, Barron, Hornish, Manning

Bringing up the rear - Paul Dana and AJ the 4th

I have a box full of the same ad in poster form. If you need dartboard material. :mad:

Hornish isn't in the front row with the road racing furriners!!! That's it, someone needs to form a new league for 'muricans. :gomer:

Carp = Carpentier.

Special Ed Carpenter didn't make the cut.
