While we were growing up, A.J. Foyt was the baddest ass on four wheels. We had a toy version of one of his Coyote racers. We rooted for him every year at the Brickyard at our grandparents' house, back when the 500 was tape-delayed and shown in the evening. He's bare-knuckled, rough-and-tumble, and he won LeMans with Gurney in a GT40, which rivals Texacala Jones as the best Lone Star/Golden State combo in the history of those two great republics. So it makes us a little sad that Foyt's not had the success as a team owner that he had for years as a driver. But props to him for still going out and knocking heads. He's got a recount of his Indy experience over at USA Today. Czech it.
