They can't even fill the gd field,

IMO both series need to reconsolidate again, they streched their fan base way to thin, and took out all marketing aspects of the sport.

Such a shame too, the indy 500 used to be a big deal, even qualifing would be on abc in primetime, look at it now. Disgusting.

Only 34 seperate entries (most till enter two so they have twice the shot of getting qualed, and like 7 of the entries are TBAs) It's disgusting, it means only one team will go home not qualifing, there is no drama of being on the bubble, it's just sad.

I'll agree with you on this. I pretty much feel the same way.

Qualifing is on ESPN.... What's wrong with that?

OK so it's sad

Either way I'm going to be out there for about two weeks. I'll be at the track everyday. I really think the split has hurt both. Matter fact, I haven't watched much of either since the split. I get the chance now and then to go to a race or two. After seeing a Michigan race a couple years ago I realized that these guys for the most part still race there a$$3$ off.

true true, marketing aside these guys do haul around a track, and there is just something about the smell of methenol fuel that adds something.

Whats real cool is a watched one of the series (IRL?) up at NHIS, it's scary the angle they would come out of turn 4 at then make an almost right turn at the wall to head down the front stretch.

If anyone is coming out to the race and wants to get together let me know. I got out here a day ago and will stay for the race.
