INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Foyt family has been a part of racing at the Indianapolis 500 for more than 50 years, but this year a family feud involving the Foyts have kept one of their cars out of the race.
A.J. Foyt IV had hoped to be in this weekend's field, running in the #41 car, but a dispute between him and his grandfather caused him to quit on Bump Day after the morning practice session.
24 Hour News 8's racing analyst Derek Daly asked the younger Foyt about the incident on Tuesday night and if he has spoken to his grandfather since.
"No, I haven't spoken to him. Everybody knows my grandfather. He's a bit hot-headed. He can be a bit hard-headed and maybe I got that from him too a little bit. So, maybe that's why we haven't talked," Foyt IV said. "But, hopefully we work it out pretty soon. It's been tough couple days just having to sit back at home and not going out to the track anymore. And now, I've turned into a spectator."
Foyt IV was hosting an event to promote his new wine label.
