Graham Fan 2010

#1 Mar 2, 2010
I have been an avid supporter of Indycar / Champcar since 1980. 30 years of up's and downs from Bobby Rahal's 1986 Indy 500 victory and Graham's first win! I have attended over 100 events and was a volunteer official for the series for 4 years. Never have I been so dismayed,(including the split in the mid 90's) than I am now with Graham not having a ride!! Sarah Fisher, Hideki Mutoh, Mike Conway, you have got to be kidding me. I spend many thousands of dollars traveling around the country to races and this is how loyal American fans are treated. Sponsers with money (which there are many) Graham Rahal is a star and your name could be on his car. Open your ears and your pocketbooks as drivers like Graham Rahal and Jonathan Summerton deserve to drive in this series. Izod has commercials all over, including the Super Bowl and Graham and Katie in Times Square. It isn't too late yet, but it may be in another week. Please step up to the plate and promote your company!! Graham will win for you!!

Why does every lackluster open wheeler that can't get a ride in the IRL think he can walk over NASCAR and get the red carpet rolled out to him. If he isn't good enough to keep a ride in open wheel, he's in for a rude awakening in NASCAR. NASCAR fans don't give a sh*t who his father was. He's not an Allison, Earnhardt, Petty or Waltrip.

Why, because that's NASCAR. It doesn't matter how good you are, if you can get sponsor money you're in. Rahal will once push a more deserving driver out of the way and get a ride. This is why NASCAR is more like the WWE then a real competitve sport.

Who...Graham is a lackluster driver?
It is apparent that you are a NASCAR fan and not a racing fan.

The man needs a job.

Let him drive in ARCA or the truck races to see if he can compete. His name alone would help either series sell some seats.
