And that is why guys like me don't follow IRL and other open wheel racing much. I would much rather watch the good ol' boys race.

Well i guess you have to go back several years when IRL changed the car specs to spec lease engines and get all the big boyd in from old CART saying that. Penski is in control of the IRL series by getting them the Detroit race ( which is a track NO ONE should go to and doing road races to please the other owners Dover was another one and with only 6 or 7 teams there is control the races the other cars are needed to just fill the field.AND THATS NOD DIFFERENT THAN WHEN I WAS IN CART THEY NEEDED ME TO FILL THE FIELD.. Nothing has changed BUT COST. Do you think that HONDO just stacke the engine up and pull strws to get them ??? or we have to go to Japan and Mid Ohio for HONDA .. i believe Brain Barnhart has done a GREAT DAMAGE to the sort by getting rid of 8 teams to get the CART guy in . spec racing will never be successful as long as it is run to the selected few.. CART tried it and Dale Coyne still has not won a race and makes $$$$ to fill the field. and last but not least why wouldn't Sam Hornish go to NASCAR the purses are double so Sam could run in the middle of the back and make double what he makes now as they race 2 times more AND it is safer. IRL bragged that Scot Sharp had made ??$ 10,000,000 in IRL GEZZ the top half of NASCAR make that in a couple of years?? thanks for listening.. BUT nothing will change.. i really think its to late.
