A longer and later-starting version of 'America's Original Nighttime IndyCar Race' will be run at Texas Motor Speedway in June.
Reacting to a petition presented by TMS president Eddie Gossage, Indy Racing League officials have extended the length of the Bombardier Learjet 500 by 28 laps from 200 laps/500 kilometers to 228 laps. Renamed the Bombardier Learjet 550, the race on June 9 will begin at 9 p.m. CDT, an hour later than last summer.
I get criticized for being vocal about some things but both these [changes] are good for the fan. And if it's good for the fan, it's good for the sport.
I wish to thank Marlboro/Penske for my tickets to the Bombidere 550. I totally enjoyed the race.Congrats to Mr Hornish
ok so i get these free tickets too, but i have moved in the past months so i have no idea how to contact marlboro to change my address (and i have yet to receive them), do you have that package they sent you that gives the number to their customer service. Please help...email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
