For those wondering about the placeline for today’s Trackside, well, the Dean of Speed had changed his monicker to Father of the Groom this week only as his son Ryan marries the lovely Jessica in Sin City.

Instead of hoping for a win from home boy James Hinchcliffe in one or both of the back-to-back Honda Indy Toronto Saturday and Sunday, I will be hoping for a long life of happiness for my boy and his beautiful bride to be.

And should Elvis show up in his race car from the movie Speedway to help with the nuptials, well that will be a bonus.

While I will certainly miss the Honda Indy Toronto — the first one I have not attended as a fan or a sports writer since that first one back in 1986 — the extremely talented and knowledgeable Mike Zeisberger will be more than ably keeping readers up to date with fascinating stories from Exhibition Place.
