When Donald finished talking about A.J. Foyt in this video, he asked, “Do you think I was fair to tell those stories?” He said that Foyt wouldn’t like people hearing about his generosity.
I told him that it was more than fair. The more people hear about the good deeds of others, the more likely they are to author a few of their own, and if Foyt’s minor embarrassment at being outed as an “old softie” is a small price to pay.
Especially in light of his recent and controversial decision to sell Bruno Junquiera’s ride out from under him to Andretti Autosport, it might be a good time to tell people about something selfless Foyt did for others.
