You get more feedback from two car teams. It is also easier to tell if the problem is the car or the driver on a two car team. This acted as a test drive for 2009.
I wouldn't think you would know that so I am here to help you.

It comes down to sponsorship you idiot. You don’t think Rahal or Panther would love to have a second car? Panther has already contacted Anthony Davidson about driving a second car for them.
Common sense Megan. Try and get a little.
You're not my type either. A single woman raising kids w/o a job doesn't sound to appealing to this woman.

Not always true. You get more feedback if BOTH cars are set up exactly alike. This is not always the case as drivers have different styles.

That is why TK has been setting up cars for Marco and Danica.

btw rahal doesn't have two cars because he doesn't have one right so why swallow both debts? That's common sense. Common sense tells you when one thing isn't going good adding another with no promises doesn't help. Duh! You keep trying and looking foolish! I feel sorry for you really out trying to get attention and stalking must be hard as for me I've never had to do that. Hint negative behavior wont get you far in life nut!

See Ya later alligator.

So TK doesn't set up Marco's or Danica's cars. Come on Megan, that is common knowledge.

here are some originall thoughts. Lets see if you can respond with original thought and not name calling. it's up to you LGR
1.Long Beach used the right cars
2.Danica won but Milka led more laps
3.ALMS/IRL doubleheaders gave IRL fans a chance to see what a series looks like with manufacturer involvement
4. Milwaukee’s grandstands were half full and that was deemed a success!
5. Unification, a championship battle that came down to the last race of the season, Helio winning over fans from his dancing escapade, ABC television coverage, and a 0.8 TV rating for the finale. The Nationwide race garnered a 1.0 rating and it ran two days later than scheduled.
6. Transition teams given cars that were so old that some of the updates from Dallara could not fit on the cars.
7. Marty Roth being involved in the “premier” U.S. based open wheel series. At least he was within 10MPH of then leader at Detroit. Oh but wait, that would only put him on the pole for GT1 in the ALMS.
8. More on Marty Roth. His qualifying speed at Edmonton would have put him 12th on the grid for the Atlantic race.
9. Iowa is on the schedule. Road America, Cleveland and Portland are not! Is the IRL a “premier” series?
10. Will Matos be watching IRL races from the sidelines like the rest of the Indy Lights champions?

Sorry not reading your book you come to troll so why waste your time otherwise. You don't like racing you like having sissy little fights! Save the books for someone who gives a damn you're a turd in my book! Have a good one I always do :) One thing I loathe around here is people who write books especially when they're not credible to begin with! Offbeat is the place for you I"m telling you, you're missing it all. Stalker

If one car isn't any good and falls apart how would adding another car that would fall apart help? You're comparing with AGR that's a top team not Foyt who's driver parks due to handling. You can twist and turn it all you like you're wrong! Have a good one :)

I thought you had at least a little knowledge in regards to racing, sponsorship dollars and the data that is aquired with two operations versus single car operations. It comes down to sponsorship dollars Megan. If you can afford to run a two car operation the chances of finding success increase.

What state do you live in that you collect welfare from hard workers! You should be in trouble that's fraud! I know in my state it wouldn't pay for this 1 year old house I live in nor my extracurricular activities. Maybe you should find you a man if one will have you then you can get off welfare. Heads up!
