GOING INTO THE GARAGE: Thursday's edition of CBS' "Late Show" featured show intern Todd appearing on-stage to discuss his appearance at the Verizon IndyCar Series Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg last weekend. Host David Letterman said to Todd, "You represent the best of what our internship offers and what we attract as young men and women. How long have you been with the 'Late Show' as an intern?" Todd replied, "I've been interning since 2009." Letterman asked Todd, "Do you know anything about automobile racing?” Todd: “I do now.” The broadcast aired a taped report from Todd who asked Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing driver Graham Rahal about the team's new sponsor, the National Guard, of which Todd said he was "thinking about joining." Rahal: “I think you have to beef up a little.” Todd asked team co-owner Bobby Rahal, “Do you think that I can ever be an IndyCar driver?” Bobby Rahal replied, “Are you old enough to drive?” (“Late Show,” CBS, 4/3).
