DRIVING MR. FREEMAN

Mid-South superstar Morgan Freeman has been tapped to drive the pace car at this year's Indianapolis 500. Freeman told the Indianapolis Star, "Right next to acting, my childhood dream was to drive on a speedway track. ... I'm thrilled to just be an observer, but especially thrilled to be a part of the racing logs as the pace car driver for the Indianapolis 500 this year." The obvious question: Will there be a gnarled old Southern matriarch in the back seat shouting, "Slow it down, Hoke, or you won't be my best friend anymore!"
