So… Nelson “I drive Green” Philippe has been officially confirmed at Conquest for a couple of races this season.
I can tell you now that Nelson was already penciled in for the end of the season at Conquest in a second car. No surprise at all considering the history. Not to mention, Nelson spent a lot of time hanging out with the Conquest gang in Indianapolis. And well, who doesn’t like Nelson?! He is awesome with a capital A.
Here’s the line that stood out the most to me from the quotes though:
“We are looking forward to working with Nelson to go racing fulltime in 2010.”
Remember those burning bridges I spoke of earlier? This one appears to be nothing but embers now…
Oh, and completely unrelated, but funny as hell, twitter conversation from earlier:
@grahamrahal: Just want everyone to know that all GR merchandise will be for sale at mid-ohio this weekend so make sure and grab some!
@IndyTrackside: @GrahamRahal Do you know where I can get any Doornbos stuff?
Me whilst reading along… *spittake* then snorted rootbeer thru my nose!!! Ouch! (but totally worth it)
