NEWTON, Iowa (AP) Despite getting dressed down by Ed Carpenter after some close racing in Iowa, rookie Sage Karam offered the IndyCar veteran an empty seat next to him on the plane ride home.

Carpenter had apparently said all he needed to say. Almost.

"He said he's pretty much still mad at me," Karam said. "And I said, `Well, you can sit next to me...and we can talk about it.' He said, `Nah. I have three kids I have to take care of in the back. I don't need to be taking care of a fourth.'"
