The Donald a no show at the indy 500

Fri May 06, 2011 7:29 am

UPDATE: The Indianapolis Star reports that Donald Trump has backed out of being the 500 pace car driver this month. The potential presidential candidate reportedly told officials for Indianapolis Motor Speedway that partaking in the race on May 29 would conflict with the prospect of him conducting a presidential campaign. Below, the story that originally appeared in this post.

i guess when you spread lies and rumors, ya really dont want to be around people that will question you, stick to tv donny.............

AJ Foyt will replace Trump as the pace car driver.
Foyt won his 1st of 4 Indy 500s 50 years ago this May.
He was the 1st to win 4, and the 1st to win in front & rear engine machines.
This will be his 54th straight Indy 500 in which he fielded at least 1 car as a driver and/or owner.

When Foyt finishes the honorary pace laps, he will likely get out of the car, walk back to his spot on pit row and put on his headset so he can talk to his two drivers -- Vitor Meira and Bruno Junqueira, both Brazilians.

"I'll be leading the race again is all I can say," he said. "It'll probably be pretty nerve-racking. I'm just very honored I can do something back for the speedway because the speedway is what made A.J. Foyt and my whole racing career."
