George Foreman looks to grill IndyCar competition, buys into Panther Racing

Boxing legend, minister, author, pitchman extraordinaire, and now race team owner? George Foreman has pretty much done it all, and has taken advantage of an opportunity to do even more, joining the ownership group behind two-time IRL champion (2001 and 2002), Panther Racing.

Foreman, who has built a successful marketing company with his sons in George Foreman Enterprises, says he's proud to be part of the team, which will field three cars driven by John Andretti, Kosuke Matsuura, and Vitor Meira at this weekend's Indy 500. So thrilled was the nattily-dressed former heavyweight champ that in a moment of exuberance, he grabbed Meira's arm and ripped it out of its socket just moments after the photo above was taken.

We kid, we kid, of course. But George, Vitor needs both arms to run Indy, so take it easy on the guy, OK?
