Question Newman/Haas ricers?

Are those LED lights I see on Fittipaldi's car's wheels? They don't look like glowing rotors, they go away when they stop, and they light up immediately when they start moving! None of the other team's car wheels are glowing.

I think they are like a LED Marque display that you can program to display any word. They go on when the car is in motion so you can read it when the wheel is moving. I think the Newman - Haas cars are the only ones with this. It's kind of cheesy I think, just anither way for the sponsors to get their name displayed on the car.

Now what the cars should have is a scrolling marque display on the back of the wing that is connected to some voice recognition software. This way the drivers can send messages to each other during the race. You know like "Your an A##hole!" Now that would be cool!

They probably work with a centrifugal switch. Those lighted yo-yos work on the same principle.
