Speed Week: Open-wheel racing in U.S. continues its fade

Full story: San Diego Union-Tribune

As a backward way of beginning a review of the 2007 motorsports season, I'd like to say this should be the second "golden era" of IndyCar racing.

Pretty soon they'll have to merge with the IRL surviving. Bye bye champ car, no really I'm not thrilled that they may go under but being from Indy I love Indycar more, lots more, lol.

Who cares about Champ? The IRL will survive that's all that matters. With 300,000 fans at Indianapolis everyyear it's obvious it will survive. Yeah Mystery man you tell that ugly racecar driver the truth LOL i have no idea what you guys are talking about

Well if either are going I wish they'd hurry up and let us know.
They both have scheduled races next year so I don't think it's all that much of a going to happen thing. If it happened I'm sure we'd hear about it.

I could give them racing lessons like I do the kids, lol, they just love it. Well one does the other one doesn't even know who runs in which series, that'd be Brianne. How was the race in Ft. Wayne?

The owners have to put their egos aside for the betterment of open wheel racing. and they also have to hire and promote American Drivers if they want Americans to spend money to watch a race in america. Simple if I wanted to watch foeigners i would watch a soccer match

Well obviously this is the JPM thread so I can't agree with you I like the man. They hire where they see talent, foreigners are in every sport like it or not. Maybe bowling doesn't have as many good luck with that.
