very appropriate article and a breath of fresh air in the mainstream media. After Anton's buy-out of Champ Car, instead of becoming a truly major league series, it looks like the IRL has evolved into what Champ Car was in the its final years - a series with a declining car count, no sponsors, anonymous ride buyers and exile to a third rate TV network. It has become Champ Car - only with slower and uglier cars and very few real fans. The IRL wltimately will fade away and will be be replaced by a truly independent and 1st rate open wheel series. Until then we'll remember what real racing once was........
