    Tony Kanaan's blog, May 2007

  • My mom hasn't played much of a role in my racing career. In fact, I think she still wants me to join the Coast Guard. But I still love her.

    PJ Chesson on Mothers Day

  • I can't control what size I am and how I'm built. All I know is the NBA doesn't lower the hoop for short guys.
