    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 9: FOYT: "I think that's ridiculous, people say you're going to out-psyche, there's no such thing as that, and if a guy wants to believe in it that way I think he's an idiot. Preparation is the key thing, that's right, preparation, getting the car ready is the answer in trying to win a race."

    Background: With preparations in full swing for this year's Indianapolis 500 motor-race, the man once again tipped as winner is "grand-daddy" of the U.S. motor-racing circuit, A.J. Foyt.

    Foyt has won the gruelling U.S. classic three times....his last victory was in 1967. Since then a number of problems have kept him out of victory lane.

    This year he'll lead the field from the pole, qualifying at 194 miles per hour.

    Many drivers say Foyt's trail of successes "psyches" the other drivers into losing, but in an interview included in the film, he scorns this notion.
