He is stuck in 1995 and will never leave there. He is the type that takes EVERYTHING personally.
Come on lurker...move out of mom's basement and join us in the 21st century. Holding on to the past is eating you alive. Your mom will thank you for it. She is getting tired of the stench drifting up thru the floor boards.
Hey Ski,are you getting more excited now!? Hey shoot me an e-mail once in a blue moon,lol! When i go back home i hope to have time at O'Hare to meet Indycar Mike for a drink!That would be great if i had an hour before boarding!

Thank goodness... He was almost as bad as me!!!
I don't know about being as bad as Paul Page but I was hoping that Wallace retired that it meant we wouldn't hear his whining voice again. I thought ABC / ESPN using Wallace as a commentator for IRL races was grossly insulting to open wheels fans. He was a taxi cab driver and an overrated one at that.

I like Rusty but hey it's just my opinion, by the way you're in a Nascar forum so why insult the cars? like it or not they're number one!

You're so right he's not worth any of it, lol, It blows my mind how I step out for 4 hours to return and see he devoted an hour to spewing hate over the IRL and Tony George. It's amazing he survives and when does he work? My God I hope I never see him in public :)

Qualifying in the Sprint Series is a joke. It should be the fastes 43 race no matter who you are or who your sponsor is. If you aren't in the top 43, you don't race. It means you didn't do your job that day and we'll see you next weekend. Money and sponsors are ruining another sport.

Qualifying is a joke in the Sprint Cup Series. There should be no top 35 rule. The top 43 should race no matter who you are or who your sponsor is. If you're not fast enough to get in the top 43, you don't race. It means you didn't do your job and we'll see you next weekend. Money and sponsors are ruining another sport.

Just what the hell does Champ Car dissolving have to do with Graham Rahal being a spoiled marginally talented loud mouthed punk ? At this point in his career he has never won anything. Face the fact if his last name wasn't Rahal this guy would be swinging a hammer while nailing shingles on someones roof.

"The IRL's June 28 race at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway will be lengthened to 300 laps -- an increase of 50 -- and will begin later (8 p.m.) for a more natural night-time effect...."

This is great news! Race was too short and will benefit from an additional pitstop. Good call IRL!!!

Ganassi wins his third straight 24 hours of Daytona. Chip get most of the credit, but there is a local boy from Roncalli High School and Purdue that is more responsible for these wins as anyone including Mr. Ganassi, He is Mike Ogara. Mike has been the engineer for all three races. This accomplishment has NEVER occurred before. Congratulation Ganassi Racing and Congratulation Mike Ogara. Job well done.

Pretty impressive finish for both Penske and Stallings given their early setbacks. Looking forward to my "10 hours of TIVO" over the next week.

Wait a minute is this Sarah Fishers husband? or his brother? It sounds so familiar I hope if he's one of the two he'll be in charge of her IRL program this year since he's good!Interesting :)

Really? Wow that is great, now I want them to say they'll have the merge and run all the races on both schedules of course not the ones the same day but you get my drift. I want those tracks back on the schedule. I want them to Merge like now.

You are like 100 % wrong about him that's what I'm saying when you dog the IRL you it's usually because your feelings are hurt over the split that happend a long time ago. But your post must have been offensive it's gone.

While Mike does play a part in the win, You cannot say he is more responsible for the win than anyone else.
It was a team effort...the ENTIRE team is responsible for this win, not just one engineer. There are machinists, fabricators, painters, electricians, carbon guys, truckies...a whole slew of people behind the scenes who seldom get any credit.
