i understand cheryl about your first two reasons but no 3  is just not right. irl cars race wheel to wheel  at chicago,michigan.texas and  california.next yr they will head to the road courses fo the first time.second  if you take the time to get to know the drivers  you can find differences in the collors of the cars lol Shocked  Cheesy


I understand the finishes in the IRL have been closer in the last few years.  I guess when I say "wheel to wheel", I really mean, bumper to fender or quarter panel.  I don't like drivers putting people the wall, but a little bit of side-to-side bumping is interesting.  You can't do that in open-wheel cars cause they don't have fenders!   :wink:

Yes, I've agreed to disagree with a ton of open wheel fans over the years.   :wink:

On IRL matching NASCAR, unfortunately you are probably right, but mostly because competition in NASCAR just keeps going downhill.

Over the years I've agreed to disagree with Cheryl also.

1.) I find the IRL racing to be very exciting to watch.
2.) Despite my declining vision due to squinting at porno pictures on the net all day, I can tell the differences in most of the cars and sponsors.
3.) I don't want or expect these cars to bump
4.) Dario is not cute. His wife is.
5.) The very first cars ever built by Henry J were open wheeled :-)
6.) It's not that I can't relate to the drivers, it's that I can't UNDERSTAND them!

There is one thing I don't understand about the series. How can anybody say "wickerbill" without laughing? ;-)

Ron, IRL will match NASCAR by 2010? In what way? The ability to take a good thing and mess it up?

lou they'll match in two ways.1 the quality of the racing will continue to improve to the point where i predict that several nascar drivers will go back to irl.2 the war between the series will be over by then and this improve the irl too.

Hmmm, very interesting view of the future. :shock:

I think that unless more American drivers start to run the IRL/CART series, that those series will not grow enough to meet your predictions.

i have to agree on at least one point they do need more american drivers but that can come the end of the war.
