Paul Stoddard bought a ChampCar team, and is bringing the Minardi name back to major-league racing!

I'm so happy, I can't stand it!

1 Cool...I inspired an actual post! With the cost differences between F1 and ChampCar I'll bet that Stoddart feels like he has "deep pockets" for the first time in ages. One of my racing buddies says that one of the rumored drivers may be another F1 expat, Jos "The Boss" Verstappen! I too am glad to see the Minardi name alive and I think this raises the bar for Aerican open-wheel road racing. I saw the Panoz DP01 cars that all the teams will be using (on display) at the San Jose Grand Prix earlier this year. The cars are gorgeous and are starting to take on some F1 type aero like the higher nose and sidepods. I've already got my tickets for the Long Beach Grand Prix in April 2007, and I'll be there to wish Stoddart and Team the best!

Forza Minardi!

2 Funny, I didn't think ducks could dance, what with them big flappy feet and all.

3 Well, it ain't a particularly GRACEFUL dance, but when you're a duck, and you're happy enough to do the *happy ducky dance*, you don't care about how you look.

*doing Lambada, the forbidden dance*

4 Surely, Steven must have remembered Howard the Duck? There must have been a dancing duck in that, no?
