Who's there? Is that you Tony?
Bruton! I told you not to use my real name. Out loud, I mean.
Oh yeah, sorry ... uh... AJ. So do you really think we can start a series that will compete with.... you know.... the "N" word?
Are you kidding me? With all the problems that bunch of cornholers has? No offense. I mean look at the facts man! First off, the whole thing is run by the grandson of the man with the real vision, the true entrepreneur who built a whole racing and business empire from the ground up. I don't want to be Petty but, the grandson doesn't exactly exude gravitas, if you know what I mean.
Yeah, Ton... I mean AJ, I know exactly what you mean.
Bruton, my man, that is just the start. Think about this; they have too many good teams. So many that every weekend, quality teams and sponsors are unable to make races. Four manufacturers are competing in the series and the newest entrant, Toyota, is having a hard time. That wouldn't happen in my series.
Uh, .... AJ.... the IRl only has one manufacturer..
Stop! Bruton. My Friend. Think. Think of the fans. The poor wretches are constantly bombarded with network TV, cable TV, radio, print media and an unrelenting barrage of internet crap all about this stock car obsession. Bruton...Bruton, every race, do you here me, every single one, is broadcast, live!
Every time they fall all over themselves, whether it's someone cheating at their biggest race, ah, I mean their second biggest race, or when they change their cars to look like something a Weeble would drive or their chairman gets caught trying to be a modern day rum runner, THEY MAKE NEWS. We have an obligation to fix it.
Tony... what can we...
Listen bubba, here's what we do to start the IRNMBSIL. First, I take the Brickyard 500, the Greatest Spectacle in Racing..
The wha...? You mean 400, right? And what the hell is the IRNMBSIL?
Bru, baby, it's 500 now. It's complicated legal stuff but the short of it is, France Jr., sort of owns Brickyard 400, and all that entails. I still have Indy 500 though. So, I think I have Brickyard 500....Don't you..think? Anyway, B, with your tracks... I can see us going to Vegas like 4 times a year..and my track and my ability to get, like maybe Honda and Kia on board we can save north American racing.
Uh, AJ... Tony...up until tonight, I didn't think anyone could make Brian France look visionary. But Tony...AJ...URNMBSIL.
