June 2, 2011 I Love Clever People
IMS, Indianapolis, IN
I'm not a huge race fan. I just enjoy spending the day at the Indy 500. So I didn't get this joke at first. As most of you know, sponsorship is a big part of racing. So here's why this banner is so funny. At Indy, the top 33 cars quailify for the race. Bruno was the driver for one of those cars. But in a business move, the owner of Bruno's car, A.J. Foyt sold the rights of that car to Michael Andretti so he could but one of his drivers in it. So Bruno doesn't get to race this year. These fans decided to give Bruno a new sponsor.
