Saw this kid race a couple times.
If his equipment holds together he can win any race.
He WILL be a factor in the Racing community - Formula
One is within his reach. Talent/committment like his
is rare at this age.
Hope he picks up good sponsors, s/be a Win/Win!

It's always cool when a young athelete tears up the field!

The only Formula One track in the US is in Austin, TX, not Indy.

And I think Mr Fitz-Simons raced Porsches, not porches. A missing 's' can make all the difference!
