RIP: We’ve lost Paul Newman. Millions will remember and continue to enjoy his classic, excellent acting. Millions more have been and will continue to be touched by his Newman’s Own and Hole in the Wall Camps charities. As a life-long IndyCar fan, my own memories of Paul Newman are associated with his role as co-owner of Newman Haas Lanigan Racing, a front-running team for nearly three decades in the CART/Champ Car/IndyCar series. His team endured a lot this season – tragic death, transition to a new series, and knowing they’d be losing their patriarch. Here’s hoping N/H/L is done with the sad news and finds smoother sailing ahead.
