    Sammy, buy into a successful racing circuit at least. Indycar will be non existant in a few years.

    He's a smart businessman, I don't think this will hurt him much if at all.

    Nascar would've been the better route, I think. Way more exposure in the US, and we all know that alcohol and rednecks go hand in hand. (Not a slam, I watch Nascar religiously; just don't own a gun rack.)

    Looks like he's following the Gene Simmons route for Indy Car.

    I would of thought NASCAR would make more sense in the US. I watch NASCAR some if I'm watching TV on a Sunday afternoon but Indy cars may give him a little more international coverage. There are plenty of wealthy NASCAR fans but the $75 Tequilla market may also be a better fit for Indy fans as a whole.

    While NASCAR would get him more exposure, I'm not sure it would be the right target market. I think (maybe I'm wrong) that NASCAR fans are more of the Budweiser crowd than the IRL fans. I don't mean that as a slam. They're just different people with different tastes.

    Perhaps, but I think the stereotype of the NASCAR fan is slooowly changing, kind of like the Harley stereotype (now starting to age with more disposable $$).

    either way it'll likely translate into more cash for the Hagar coffers...he's not stupid...and he's having fun...wouldn't we all like to say we own a nice piece of something we enjoy?
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...

    Hmm, I know I'm going out on a limb here - but I will guess the car will be RED and have the number 55 on it...
