LOOKING TO THE FUTURE: Asked what his plan would be should his Army partnership end, Schumacher said, “Honestly, I don’t know if I would want to drive. If the Army said, ‘We’re done, we don’t want to race anymore,’ I might just be done. I think it’s a great way to end. It’s been an amazing career and I’ve done so many things. Not that I don’t want to drive for 10 more years and run a race team, I just don’t know that you can replace that.” However, if he did have to replace the Army, Schumacher said it would “have to be something tough." He said, "I’d have a hard time getting out of the car after the Army and talking about Pampers. It just wouldn’t go right.”
OWNERSHIP FUTURE? The 43-year-old Schumacher drives for his father’s team, Don Schumacher Racing, and said owning his own team down the road might be a possibility. “I’d love to own a race team, I really would,” he said. “I think I would be good at motivating and selecting, which is really what it’s all about.”
