IndyCar 2010; Turning Boring And Irrelevant Into Exciting And Cost Effective

We have no reason whatsoever to cover the current Izod IndyCar Series. Every car has the same chassis, same engine, and foriegn drivers. Blah. Not only are the engines and chassis identical, they have been the exact same part since 2002!! Not exactly something we have time for here on the 'Shopper Blog. Maybe if they changed the rules a little, invited in some new manufacturers, some new chasses, and some fresh competition, then maybe we would care. As long as there are racing Series such as the Rolex Grand-Am Series and the American Le Mans Series then Americas premier open-wheel series has to step up their game in order to charge NASCAR prices for USHRA product.

Today, things may change. At high noon . . . thirty today, the Izod IndyCar Series will release its plans for 2012, establishing hope for open-wheel racing and/or putting the nail in the coffin. The 'Shopper will be watching, and you should too. A note: in the nineties, IndyCar was considered an equal to F1. I wouldn't mind getting that sort of international recognition back for an American series.

The press conference will be held at 12:30 p.m. EST, and can be streamed here. Thanky and Good Day . . .
