ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG IT'S RUBINHO IN AN INDYCAR ZOMG!!!!
Look, we're all excited, right? It's because Rubens Barrichello has been racing in Formula 1 for almost twenty years and has an international following that makes IndyCar's look like a tiny, sad group of Battle Beyond the Stars fans at a Star Trek convention.
Anyway, Rubinho took some laps in the #5 IndyCar for KV Racing at Sebring today and the AP's Jenna Fryer obligingly summarized the whole thing for us. Look for Brant James to kick out some more up-close-and-personal mojo tomorrow at Sports Illustrated. For now, hit the jump for some sweet video from KV and IndyCar from today's hijinks.
