A.J. Foyt Racing Changes Number On Pedersen’s IndyCar

Foyt on his 88th birthday with an innocuous number change to 88 on Benjamin Pedersen’s IndyCar created an uproar from “Social Warriors” because Foyt’s primary number is 14. The number “1488” is deemed by some to be “politically incorrect” because of its connation to a certain movement. AJ Foyt Racing released the following statement Friday afternoon:. 88 livery last week, it was brought to our attention that the combination of our two individually entered numbers carries certain ideologic and symbolic references. AJ Foyt Racing does not condone nor support any such ideologies or symbols, and to avoid any reprehensible associations, we have changed the entry number from 88 to 55.
