Far be it for me to tell tale out of school, but…
After last Sunday races, we were all very excited to see Ted Johnston Win the F500 Feature race, after Tom Diehm had mechanical issues. It is in your best interest to read on.
Some guest spectator friends of mine were walking round the racetrack, last race weekend, after Saturday racing was over. Coming through the esses, they heard conversations in the paddock. Curious as to how loud it was they looked beyond the fence line. To their surprise, and amazement, they saw what appeared to be a very large, and somewhat hairy looking person, passing between the Formula 500 pit areas. They quickly pulled out their phone cameras, but only got off this somewhat blurry shot.
They brought this to my attention, as I am a F500 driver. They asked what I thought of this image. At first I didn’t think too much of it. But my curiosity got the best of me. So I put the photo into my computer, to take a closer look. As I have some experience in digital imaging, I tried to manipulate the image as best I could, to clarify it a bit. The image surely does look like Bigfoot. But even more curious was that it was carrying, what I believe to be a Sawzall and a photo of Tom Diehm’s racecar – oddly departing Ted Johnston paddock space.
Again, not being a rumor guy - it does beg the question as to how Tom, in its rarity
, had a mechanical failure, and this Bigfoot sighting all happened within 24 hours of each other. You be the judge.
Ps - Don't shoot the messenger!
