Understandably, when most people think of Paul Newman they think of one of the greatest actors of our time. They think of Cool Hand Luke or Butch Cassidy. Or they think of popcorn, spaghetti sauce, or a McDonald's salad.
But I tend to think of the track. I think of how glad I am that he was able to see both Newman/Haas/Lanigan drivers, Graham Rahal and Justin Wilson, get wins in a reunified open-wheel series this year.
The Indy Car Series has produced a beautiful tribute to a great friend of racing.
