DES MOINES, Iowa – Local cat “Apricot” still does not seem to give a shit that the racing season is postponed for the foreseeable future, and his owner, Tom Daniels, is concerned.  “I’m not sure what to make of it,” said Daniels, “He just sits there like nothing is happening, and not once has he even reacted to the fact that racing is not on.  I’ve even tried showing him pictures of Dario Franchitti and old Le Mans prototypes and nothing.  Blank stare.  Like most of America, he just doesn’t give a shit.”

Daniels said Apricot will still chase after and play with a string, but is not enticed by a hotwheels car rolling by.
