Four Burning Questions at the Brickyard: The Drive for Five and an IndyCar Ringer

Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Simply reading those three words in succession should incite a fit of shivers up the spine of any race fan worth his/her salt. NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series will invade the historic facility today for the 21st annual Brickyard 400. It seems wild to think that Indianapolis has been on the schedule for that many years now, but alas, it has, and today will mark yet another key chapter in the NASCAR-Indianapolis story.

I’m talking lead every practice session, qualify on the pole and then go wire-to-wire. After all, he will be driving (practically) a Cup-lite car capable of the feat and Jones is no slouch behind the wheel. So why not go crazy this weekend and make an entrance worth talking about?
