Yep, cuz we all know CART invented the 500. In fact, the 500 was ALWAYS sanctioned by CART, until that BAD, BAD IRL came around.<quoted text>
Your handle says it all. Even with this takeover, er "merger", the once great Indianapolis 500 will remain a shadow of its former self.
After all, what do we get when IRL swallows, I mean combines with the CCWS? All we have is a somewhat larger field in the Dallara/Honda spec race, masquerading as the formerly Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
Hey, looks like ya' still got the Atlantics series, sport.
