-With Takuma Sato looking like at least a decent possibility for a seat at Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing next year, I put up a poll over at Trackforum asking which driver out of the current names being circulated they'd like to see in a second RLLR seat. The responses were all over the place, with Paul Tracy, Buddy Rice, Bertrand Baguette, and Pippa Mann the top vote-getters. It doesn't prove a thing, except to illustrate that seat has become one of the more intriguing ones of this silly season, perhaps only behind Andretti's GoDaddy Car and the second seat at KV in terms of intrigue.
-In case you missed it, here's a neat story on IndyCar technology coming to child safety seats.
-Lastly, it is Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year. If you're deranged dedicated enough to be out shopping in the midst of the pandemonium, don't forget Brickyard Authentics will be having special sales now through November 28, perfect for that loved one or favorite blogger on your list.
Have a great weekend, sleep off that turkey, and we'll catch up on Monday.
