I can’t tell you how many times, as a teenager, I suggested to my friends that we "borrow" a golf cart and go cruising across the links. Back then, it seemed like that kind of stunt that only the coolest of us would attempt. Well, as of this moment, Paul Tracy is among the coolest of us.
On October 28th, the Champ Car Circuit’s current leader in wins and poles had a little too much to drink and crashed a golf cart while attempting to jump some sand dunes. While this is good news as it can officially be announced that Mr. Tracy is the winner of my personal "Cooler than Me" Award, it is not so good for him. Tracy suffered a broken right shoulder in the debacle and will most likely have to miss the final race of the Champ Car season.
