FBCindi Episode #13 — Do you feel lucky?

Doug is still tending to family matters, so it’s up to Tom and John to find a way to thin out the void of Verizon IndyCar Series news to fill up an hour of something kind of entertaining.  There’s really only one seat left, so who will be in it when the music stops?
