And Another Thing

Associated Press
Helio Castroneves congratulates Scott Dixon for winning the IndyCar Series Championship after finishing fifth in the Indy Car auto race at the Auto Club Speedway on Saturday.

And meanwhile, in IndyCar ...

It's only fair on a day when the Blob got you caught up on NASCAR to catch you up as well on IndyCar -- which you probably figured ended its season either on Labor Day or right after the Indianapolis 500 in May, which is when most of America quits paying attention to it.

Au contraire. IndyCar just wrapped up its season Sunday at Fontana, Calif., where Scott Dixon finished fifth to secure his third IndyCar title by 27 points over Helio Castroneves.

So, there you go. Now go forth and use this knowledge for good, or something.
