Sato 1st Japanese driver to win IndyCar race
LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — It was an unlikely pairing that no one was certain would work when A.J. Foyt hired Takuma Sato to drive for him this year.
Foyt, the hot-tempered Texan with little patience for errors, had just hired a talented Japanese driver with a penchant of letting his aggression take him out of many races. Sato’s most spectacular gaffe came on the last lap of last year’s Indianapolis 500, when he wrecked while racing for the win.
Foyt made it clear early he wanted his new driver to bring a 10th-place car home in 10th, to never push past the limit and settle for what the car would give him.
