The Indianapolis Star

Potential IRL teams flood test session

I appreciate your optimism, but I don't think Indy will ever be number one in terms of fan numbers again. NAPCAR is racing for the masses. It makes good TV. Everyone can see, at a glance towards the television, where their driver is. And everybody knows that the orange Home Depot car is Tony Stewart and the rainbow DuPont car is Jeff Gordon and the red Budweiser car is Dale Ear... well, you know what I mean. NAPCAR fans are NOT racing fans, they are fans of a Television Series; a SHOW. These are the same people who watch pro wrestling and think that the American Idol contestants can sing. Indy will compete for the #1 spot again, only when it's television presence appeals more to the masses. Now, that could truly ruin the sport. I'm happy to be in the minority who simply appreciate superior drivers in superior cars doing actual racing.  (Feb 28, 2008 | post #19)

No merger news but many questions

You are correct. My first day on board here and I make myself look stupid. Thank you for correcting me. Anyway, I remember the infighting back then, and I'll be pleasantly surprised if a merger now would unify forever the sport I love.  (Feb 15, 2008 | post #19)
