Like most American kids that grew up in the 80's I watched the Indy 500 every year and became interested in motorsports thanks to that race, but I didn't really get hooked until I started watching Formula 1 racing in the late 90's. My favorite era were those years with the great Mika Hakkinen/Michael Schumacher battles. (I was a Mika Hakkinen fan) So my fondness for Formula 1 waned once Mika retired and Schumacher started winning everything, even at the expense of his teammate Rubens Barrichello. My interest in F1 has only been lukewarm since.

Then I turned to Champ Car racing here in the US for my motorsports fix. However that was quickly extinguished once Champ Car and Indy Car merged and we were stuck with Tony George and his many foibles. (It was entertaining to watch the Hulman/George drama I'll admit.) My interest has been less than lukewarm with Indy Car lately, even without Tony George at the helm.

Over time however, the excitement I once had for motorsports has slowly gone. Maybe it has to do with my age, I don't know. But I think I will pour my efforts into my Trooper and my interests in the outdoors to add excitement to my life.

Thanks for checking out my blog, I hope you enjoy it. I will still post racing news when I find something interesting or noteworthy.

champcar fanatics - start the campaign

(posted on 8-21-08)

Since when did Fontucky attendance have any sort of credence over Long Beach?

Because no one bought the Earl as a replacement for ChampCar.

Is it that hard to put 2 and 2 together.
Bring in the Earl, out go the fans.

It has been proven time and time again.
Indy for crying out loud.

I am not sure if you are truly that dumb, or just effing with us.

Has history not taught you anything?

Hell, I bet you believe that Kentucky WAS sold out, they were just getting hot dogs and the stuff. Parking, petting the corn, whatever.
