Tony in a tux tonight as he is honored as DOTY at the Intl Motorsports HOF in 'dega. Remember last time he wore a tux?"
So, I understand he's receiving a Driver of the Year Award at the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. Does anyone know anything about this? I tried to google it but it really didn't say much. I was just curious because, frankly I didn't even know that place existed.
And when was the last time Tony was in a Tux? It didn't look like a Tux in Vegas so where was it?

Why most don't realize that what we saw last season in the chase is something that I doubt we will ever see again.

I think at times we forget what the history is and that to be a race driver is not just jumping into a race car and hitting the gas when they reach the start finish line. I loved reading names from history of racing especially the Indy cars. I followed them for years. I just hope that when a driver complains about having to give some time to the sponsor etc. that they remember what the early guys did to make a living and get very little money for it. It was desire and passion and sharing a small place with 3 other guys. Even tho it wasn't among the stories from the links I have to give the wives and families of these drivers a great deal of credit for hanging in there and sharing the joy that their spouses had. It couldn't have been easy for any of them.
