From this Friday evening and for the following thirty days, motor racing takes an enforced back seat as the 2010 FIFA World Cup kicks off in South Africa. Many of the nations involved in the IndyCar series this year are represented by squads in the tournament, including England (Dan Wheldon, Justin Wilson, Jay Howard, Alex Lloyd), Brazil (Helio Castroneves, Mario Moraes, Tony Kanaan, Vitor Meira, Raphael Matos, Mario Romancini) and the USA (Marco Andretti, Danica Patrick, Graham Rahal, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Sarah Fisher).
Fresh from their Texas adventure on Saturday night, a group of drivers spoke briefly about the upcoming tournament and expressed thoughts on how their respective country would do.

What about Briscoe and Power?!?!? Come on the Socceroos!!!
I did briefly consider listing out all the World Cup nations with drivers in the series, but thought I’d be there forever.
Wouldn’t mind knowing what it was that Power actually said about the tournament.
