Interesting to see why Boesel switched to a Lola.

Turns out, according to this he crashed his March and then borrowed a Lola from AJ of all people. Shocked

The Lola he drove was originally numbered 44 with a Copenhagen livery.  He practiced with it like this one day, then the team took it to the paint shop and applied the Dominos scheme  :slurp:

Wasn't Scott's dad the person who built and tuned all the Buicks for a while? or was that just in the 90's when John Menard took over the program? I know Brayton Engineering had a big hand in them at some point.

Great response, like it lol!

Though, back in the 80s, he looked like he drives the team truck, but now he looks like Yul Brynner with a moustache. Most people usually develop backwards on the coolness factor, but not Bobby! :top:

You are too kind Smile  I am thinking of maybe doing renderings or paintings on a commission basis.  Problem is then it becomes a job and may not be as much fun  Neutral

Some fun facts about the oddball Chevy V6 Mr. Remmen is running on Sunday -- nicknamed the "Blowtorch"
look for a pic of the car three quarters down the page, accompanied by anecdotes.

Doctorindy also grabbed a pic  Wink
This is a significant car because it was the only Judd-powered car to win an Indy car race.

I dunno what Jason thinks but, I think you can.

 It would probably be on a Street Course like Toronto or Tamiami. But you guys have the advantage of Fuel economy at the 500 mile races as well. 

 Rahal won Pocono using the cars superior fuel mileage.
