Open Wheel Sanctioning Bodies At MIS

USAC: 11 years

CART: 22 Years

IRL: 7 years

All provided the best racing this track has ever seen. If people would friggin go to the gosh darn races instead of being little minnows to just nascar then none of this would be happening.

Oh, yes...lets allow those brilliant people from the old cart to run things. They were great. What did they have...wasn't it four leadership groups and CEO's over their last five year period before '96? Sounds like open wheel preservation to me.

FACT: MIS crowds began DRASTICALLY diminishing while cart was still racing there...nascar should be the focus of your angst.

106 fans in the stands on Saturday.....on ESPN2 at NOON...NO support series races this weekend. The IRL and TONY GEORGE really cares about OPEN WHEEL OVAL TRACK preservation. Michigan was an absolute ghost town. THE IRL has disposed of 12 to 13 oval tracks in 12 years. THE IRL IS A FAILURE, TONY you need to pay for your destruction of this sport.
DENOUNCE IRL, DENOUNCE TONY GEORGE, HE is repsponsible for the failure of the sport NOW. HE needs to get out NOW.

With special thanks to The Doors. Interpretation relevant to IRL fans losing MIS and the impending league implosion.

This is the end
Satans friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of empty stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
Ill never look into your eyes...again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need...of some...CCWS strangers hand
In a...desperate land

Lost in a hoosier...wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for someone with a brain, yeah

Theres danger on the edge of town
Ride king Tony's highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride into Mari's purse, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the track, the IMS track, baby
The snake is long, two and one half miles
Ride the snake...hes old, and his skin is cold

The earl is the worst
The earl is the worst
Get here, and it soon will burst

The short bus is callin us
The short bus is callin us
Driver, where you taken us

The lemmings awoke before dawn, they put their diapers on
They took a race from the CART cast off list
And they walked on down the hall
They went into the room where his sister lived, and...then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door...and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother...i want to...take you to an IRL race with me which is worse than what i want to do to dad.

Cmon baby, take a chance with us
Cmon baby, take a chance with us
Cmon baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the short bus
crankin up some pure rock
On a short bus
Doin a pure rock
Cmon, yeah

lose,lose,lose,lose,lose,lose, lose

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

It hurts to be set free
But youll never follow me
The end of hypocrisy and lies
The end of aluminum stand glare, revisions and scream in the dark cries

This is the end

A south-central Indiana kid---or, should I say, Highway 37 hillbilly brat---with all of the time in the world; relishing the implosion of the IRL/Indianapolis 500-Mile race. What will you do if your wish comes true? Celebrate that your home state no longer has a 100-year-old legacy sporting event known the world round?

Problems with that south of Martinsville ground water as a child...yes?

Hey, you're peeing up a rope buddy. All this crap is taking place on TONY GEORGE's watch. Don't blame old CART for anything....your Supreme Commander Mr. George has allowed ISC to dictate what tracks they race on and when, he's allowed HONDA to have control of engines and what tracks they race on, AND he's allowed ROGER PENSKE to be the leagues spokesperson and dictates what tracks they race on too.

Stop denying the IRL is an abomination and realize Tony George's influence has destroyed the sport. Business as usual for Lord Sagamore...
