Actually, it has the Foyt name on the back, as AJ's family sponsored the award. It's on my wrist right now, as it has been every day since May 25, 1985. Even more precious is the Rookie Chief Mechanic of the Year award from 1985. You only get one shot at winning that one. Of course, 1981, 1984, 1987, 1988, 1991, 1993, 1994, 2001, 2002, and 2003 also had their high points....

And yes, the race lost all it's appeal for me after 1995. That doesn't take anything away from each person's effort, though, and Buddy is to be congratulated for his accomplishment. It didn't hurt that Honda has unleashed a real weapon of an engine on everyone - the first seven were all powered by Honda. We (Helio Castroneves) are the first non-Honda in 8th with Toyota power.

We started 8th with Danny Sullivan in 1985, too. Hmmm....
