    Tomas Scheckter on Helio Castroneves, Detroit 2007

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!
