Masters Degree: Eddie Cheever Jr

In a special series of features, autosport.com talks to the drivers of the GP Masters series - about the old days, the new series and their love of motor racing. This week: Eddie Cheever's unfinished business at the Indy 500

"All the racing I have done in the last four months has been to ready myself for Indy. Every lap in a car or mile on a bicycle. Every glass of wine I could have drank but didn't. Every skirt I could have chased but didn't. It's all been aimed at having a good, strong Indy 500. I want to be in that top group of five or six drivers in the last 20 laps."

At 48, Eddie Cheever Jr has returned to top-flight racing. And he is quite sure about not being there to swell the IRL's dwindling grids. He wants to win.
