They've got the power.....but not really
What has IndyCar become? It looks like nothing more than a circus sideshow.
To try and add excitement to an aging league, IndyCar recently brought back a double-header format for a recent race in Texas. I'll give them credit for trying the double-header since IndyCar did have double-header races back in the glory years. But in typical modern-day IndyCar style they had to turn it into some carnival freak parade, ie Danica, Helio, Franchitti etc. etc.
Instead of doing a reverse order lineup to start the second race they did a Price is Right spin the wheel whorefest. Will Power got to start in P3 where his biggest rival Mr. Judd started near the rear. Power went on to win the race.
