Q:What great news for Spencer Pigot! I agree with Marshall that this is a perfect place for this talented young man. Now, let's hope that Bobby can find sponsorship for an entire season, or at least a good part of the season. I salute Mr. Rahal for recognizing Spencer's talent and taking a chance. Am hoping that other team owners will step up to the plate to support young American talent. Deb Schaefer, L.A.
Robin Miller/Racer.com: Well let's be honest, without the $1 million from Dan Andersen's Mazda Road to Indy, Spencer wouldn't be driving an IndyCar next year. But I give Rahal props because he's always given Americans like Buddy Rice, RHR, Danica, Hertamania, Vasser and Simmons a job. And I doubt $1 million is enough to cover three races, so Bob, David Letterman and Mike Lanigan are making it work. Rahal and Michael Andretti have kept the red, white and blue behind the wheel when nobody else in IndyCar seems to care.
