Am I the only one who's noticed how since Scott Speed is no longer on the Team Red Bull payroll how different he acts. When he first left the Team Red Bull F1 team, and they Red Bull brought him back to the U.S. and they had him in a driver devlepoment program driving in ARCA, truck series, Nationwide Series, and then they moved him up to their Cup team he seemed so eccentric and even weird whenever he did an interview, and it was almost like he was trying to hard to be cool, but now that he's barely in racing it seems like he's such a normal kid from California, if there's such a thing, when he's getting interviewed. It's like being let go from Team Red Bull real humbled him.
The last I heard he filed a lawsuit against Red Bull for the last year in his contract that he thought he should be paid, and Red Bull was refusing to pay him. I wonder how that turned out? Maybe CrockerFan can enlighten us?
Watching qualifying for the Brickyard 400, and you see all these kids that had their 15 minutes of fame in the Cup Series like Reed Soreson, Scott Speed, J.J. Yeley, Travis Kvapil, Scott Riggs, David Ragan, David Gilliland, etc., and not one of their names come up any more at a chance of getting back to CUP when a seat comes open like the #22 or #17.
As I'm typing this Scott Speed just locked himself into the Brickyard 400.
