Champ Car Or Championship Boxing?
Great television moment out of the San Jose Grand Prix today: After overshooting Turn 6 on the city-street course, Paul Tracy spun his car into a 180 degree spin to rejoin the race, unfortunately, he skipped right out into traffic, and took the nose off of Alex Tagliani's car, knocking both out of the race.
But that's just where the fun began, as Tagliani stalked off the course to find Tracy and give him a piece of his mind -- and with an NBC cameraman in tow to boot. The results were predictable, as Tagliani grabbed Tracy and demanded an explanation. When he didn't get one, an enraged Tagliani screamed that his car was destroyed. He made it clear repeatedly that he had "no cars left,".
It was at that point that Tracy had enough, and asked Tagliani to get his hands off of him. But Tagliani wouldn't let up, which is when he threw a punch at Tracy. He then responded in kind -- which is where NBC cut the feed to the camera.
It's probably the best moment Champ Car has had in a long time. I'm glad I decided to watch. Courtesy of TiVo, I've watched the confrontation at least four times now.
One last note: PJ went to last year's race, so there's always a chance he was nearby with his camera. I sure hope so.
