Just looking for 5 other owners, I am unsure if this will take off the ground because there are hardly any IRL fans and the others think Danica Patrick is good or something.

We won't draft CCs, just a 3-car team. Draft an owner as well. A twist is your 4th driver has to be a legend of the IRL. Guys who have won the Indy 500 and so forth (Mario, etc.) are eligible even though they didn't race in the IRL.

List your team name:

Philliez01 - Underdog Racing
Hi! O-HI-O for Cleveland - Dirt Roots Racing
PF28 - Titletown Racing

I'll join since my Nascar Draft is failling hardcore.

What is up with no one being a racing fan? Aren't we men on here?


Dirt Roots Racing

You can have the 0-42 driver ;)

Okay, I will add some other obligations.

-All drivers who are active must have started a race this year, Hunter-Reay who is in for Simmons this week at Mid-Ohio is eligible even though his debut is this year.

-4th drivers (the retired driver), has to have been out of the series for one year. John Andretti, for example, does not count as he did qualify for the Indy 500 this year. Mario Andretti, does.

-Car Owners from any era in the sport.

With the 1st overall pick in the NFLDC IRL Fantasy Draft, Underdog Motorsports select:

http://www.racingnation.com/images/russ_photos/2007-05-18%20Fast%20for%20the%20day%20Sam%20Hornish%20Jr_4 933.jpg

Sam Hornish Jr.

Why?: I feel that Hornish is the logical #1 choice. He has had an off year, but I believe in the short history of the IRL; Hornish has won more races than anyone in history. With an Indy 500 title, multiple championships and sheer domination; Hornish is the best driver in the IRL.

Are we going to have a time limit?

Yes, I believe we have a one hour but it's the weekend so I just took the "No Clock" stand.

The time limit, if you don't send in a list or make your pick will be one hour from 12:00 noon to 11:00 PM.

Helio Castroneves, the real best driver in IRL. I am a huge fan of any racer from Ohio, but Sam dominated early when there was a lack of talent in the series. He can't even get around a road coarse.

Sam won the championship last year, albeit in a tiebreaker that is still controversial to me, but nonetheless he won. He finished 2nd at Watkins Glen I believe just two weeks ago. Helio is unbelieveable, but I have to give the nod to Hornish.

Though it's pretty bad because I picked him ;)

Dirt Roots Racing (Hi! O-HI-O!) is on the clock.

Danica Patrick. She might never win me a race but she is still a Top 10 driver, and we are to that point in the draft already.

Buddy Rice is my next selection. Driving for the highly underfunded Dreyor and Reibold team, he has made the most of a horrible situation. Knocking on the door to the top-10 in the IRL is a major accomplishment in itself in that piece of junk.

To kick off Round 3, I'm selecting Ryan Hunter - Reay. He is a savvy road - course driver as well as an oval racer. He's a developing star in the series, albeit with only Mid - Ohio on his resume, but I still expect big enough things from him.

Danica is a decent driver. She lets her emotions get the best of her sometimes, but I think she's going to win sooner than later.

Eh, she's average and due to her being with AGR; she most likely will unfortunately win.
