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.

Again, only in the .1rl. Ya can't make this stuff up....

"Of note: E85 for 85 cents a gallon and meet Marco Andretti? What a deal. The Andretti Autosport driver will greet patrons at the Kum & Go (2110 Guthrie St. in Des Moines) from 5:30-7:30 p.m. June 17. Premium unleaded will be offered for 10 cents off per gallon. … Jake McVey and Jessie James will perform on stage after the checkered flag of the Iowa Corn Indy 250 presented by Pioneer."

Where?/Who?/Perform what?!




Road America
Jessie James is hot, everything else in that article is meaningless.


last2brake
Is that where they teach you the difference between a white flag and a yellow flag ?


Indy
Danica = Kum & Go Slowly


TRPG
Danica = Rahal Kum & Get an irl seat


TheAngryDwarf
Is the Kum and Go for real?

Seriously?

To me, it truly sounds like a vicious nick name for the high school whore.

But, then again, this is the Earl.

Wonder how Randy is liking this now?


DirtDevil1
funny how a few short seasons ago, Marko & young Rahole
were both promising young American F1 hopefuls.
Fast Forward 2010, Rahal Jr's nothing more than FIRL ride beggar, &
Marcos peddling beer and smokes at the local Cum & Go
Neither one will ever turn F1 wheel, maybe a top 10 in prestigious
FIRL Iowa Corn Cob 150

Long live the Vision...

Kum and Go? Gawd only in places like Iowa or Indianer. Makes sense though that Marco is out peddling his wares. My understanding is (and yes I actually checked) there are still tons of good seats in the cornfest bowl for the race. Plus daddy needs Marco to suck up some cash for RHR's last race.


last2brake
I'll be there on Sunday !

Did you get good seats ?


Ronbo
"cough" baloney.."cough"...


TheAngryDwarf
Oh, come on, Ronbo.

Everybody know that L2B is a closet gomersexual.

(And with that, I run away, and run fast away, for fast I shall run away,and far shall I run away fast.)

gomersexual.

Damn, I crack myself up sometimes.
