mood: aggravated
They're saying Larry had a handling issue on live timing and scoring. He is currently ten laps down, and I don't know if he's still on track or not. I hate not knowing. It would be nice if they covered the pits!

Larry Foyt: No. 41 ABC Supply/Dallara/Honda/Firestone

* A.J. Foyt will participate in his 49th consecutive Indy 500. He was the first driver to win the Indy 500 four times (1961, 1964, 1967 and 1977). As a team owner, he’s won it three times: twice when he was driving (1967 and 1977) and again in 1999 with Kenny Brack driving.

* Felipe Giaffone, who is currently 10th in the IRL IndyCar Series standings, will participate in his sixth Indy 500. His best start was fourth in 2002 and his best finish was third that same year. He started 33rd twice (2001 and 2005) and finished 15th twice (2004 and 2005). He finished 33rd in 2003 after starting 16th. This year he qualified 21st with an average speed of 221.579 mph.

* Larry Foyt will compete in his third straight Indy 500. As a rookie he qualified 22nd and started 30th last year. He was out of action early in both events and sustained a back injury when he hit the wall in turn one last year. This year he will start 23rd with an average speed of 221.3 mph.

* A.J. Foyt on Indy: “When we got here we were behind because we had to miss the Open Test they had here right after Japan. The logistics of going back to Texas, fixing the cars plus preparing two more entries, well there wasn’t enough time to do it all. So when we got here we were already playing catch-up. The rain put us further behind and then the tire situation just compounded the challenge. We’re making changes and we’re gaining but there are 12 to 14 cars that are operating better. I think with the changes we’ve made for Carb Day we’ll be okay, but we’ll just have to wait and see.”

* Felipe Giaffone: “We made some changes after qualifying which improved the car. We have to focus on staying on the lead lap through our pit strategy and timing the yellows right. Last year I just survived and finished 15th. I have a much better car this year so I should be a lot more competitive. I think all of the teams are going to have a tougher time because of the harder tire compound—it makes it tougher to hit the right set-up for the race but it’s the same for everyone…Last year I was more anxious going into the race because we had no time to practice. Now I feel I know what the car will do from the first lap on so I’m more confident because I have a better idea of what to expect.”

* Larry Foyt: “My goal is to finish the race. We had some bad luck the last two years here and were out pretty early. It’s been a strange month. As a second weekend qualifier, I’ve had limited track time and with all the rain, it’s made it even less. We’ve struggled with the balance but my dad’s making some changes before Carb Day. I’m not sure what my car’s going to be until we do that final practice. Come race day, I just want to be there at the end. If we are, I think we’ll have a decent finish.”

  Larry got engaged last week. She is a singer and actress and is currently living in LA. When I talked to Larry yesterday he said he is "very happy to be engaged."

At dinner, he had the ring presented to their table on a silver tray with roses. Yes, it was totally girly, but he's all in love so I am not teasing him about it.

This doesn't change anything about his race schedule.

  Someone posted this on a forum so I thought I would post it here.

Larry Foyt Starts His Own NASCAR Busch Team


Larry Foyt has partnered with David Tomasello, owner of a North Carolina-based apparel business, to form Foyt Racing L.L.C. The new team plans to field cars in the NASCAR Busch Series in 2006. Foyt and Tomasello are currently seeking sponsorship to fund the two-car team, although only car would compete on the entire circuit. The second car, to be driven by Foyt, would compete in a limited schedule.

Foyt’s preparation in setting up the new team has kept him out of the cockpit for most of this season with the exception of a couple starts in ARCA and competing in the Indianapolis 500 for his father A.J. Foyt. It was in that race that the 28-year-old driver sustained an injury to his back when he spun and hit the wall in turn one. He was released from Methodist Hospital the day after the race and has since made a full recovery.

The team will be based in Mooresville, N.C., in the same shop which formerly served A.J. Foyt’s NASCAR Nextel Cup team. Larry Foyt has experience running a Busch team which he did in 2001-2002 when he drove in the NASCAR Busch Series under the auspices of his father A.J. Young Foyt’s best start was fifth which he posted several times in 2001-02 and his best finish was eighth at Talladega Superspeedway in 2002.
