A.J. Foyt is becoming more active as he continues to recuperate from triple bypass surgery in November.

"I'm doing a lot better; every day I'm doing a little bit more," the four-time Indianapolis 500 champion said. "I'm getting more of my strength back and I'm eating a better than I was when this first happened. I've been on my bulldozer a couple times. Nothing to brag about, I was very weak and very tired but I have done some stuff with it. I probably should keep that quiet because I'm not sure the doctor would enjoy hearing that."

Foyt made a cameo appearance at the Verizon IndyCar Series team test March 14 at NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, La.

"I think the new cars look pretty nice. The engineers are going to have their hands full with all of the trick stuff they came up with on the new aero kit," he said.
