Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 15: Jorge Lorenzo The Dog

Jorge Lorenzo Belknap.
Steve Belknap of Lebanon, Ohio sent in this photo and a note:

"Attached is a picture of Jorge Lorenzo Belknap. He was adopted from Indianapolis, Indiana in 2010 at the beginning of the famous racer's Championship season. My wife would cheer for Jorge and call him George, so we named our dog after him and pronounce his name George. Jorge enjoys watching races live, but hasn't quite figured out the TV. He currently resides in Lebanon, Ohio with his humans Steve and Catherine Belknap and fellow canine Sprite (named after the car, not the drink)."
