‘Dollar Dale’ Doesn’t Do Domestic Drivers, Despite No Discernible Dearth

Ever notice ‘Dollar Dale’ Coyne’s revolving door of drivers? Colorful, attractive, tempestuous and even successful every few years, there’s one thing the Coyne merry go ’round of British blondes and Venezuelan beauties never includes – that’s American drivers. Can you remember the last U.S. born pilot employed by DCR, an American team based out of Chicago? We can’t, although despite her utter lack of driving ability Milka Duno stands out in our memory for a couple of reasons.

As talented and likable as last season’s teammates Brit Justin Wilson and young Colombian Carlos Huertas are – both race winners – they’re reportedly out at Coyne next year, although with that quirky fellow from Illinois one never knows. Pippa Mann’s status remains uncertain as is the norm with DCR. Hopefully they’ll be picked up by other teams – though the likelihood of that seems increasingly remote for the time being – as all three are deserving and add something to the series. So what will 2015 entail for Coyne’s team? Would it be too much to ask the owner who has exactly three race wins in over three decades of IndyCar ownership to consider an American to wheel one of his under funded cars?

With young U.S. guns like Conor Daly, Sage Karam, J.R. Hildebrand and others still unsigned, at least to an IndyCar deal – not to mention Zach Veach, Matthew Brabham and others – there’s no discernible dearth of racing talent in the good ol’ U.S.A. Here’s a new year’s resolution suggestion for ya, Dale. Consider a fellow American driver for the primarily American series that you belatedly enter into every year. You may even win your fourth race with him.
