I watch IndyCar racing because I enjoy it. I enjoy oval racing, I enjoy road course racing, and I even enjoy street racing. I love the 500. I enjoy watching NASCAR, F1, and the occasional sports car race (both Grand-Am and ALMS, and the 24). I even watch a bike race now and then.
I have no problem with folks who don't like the same things I do. I'm not a big motocross guy, or an off-road guy. No problem. Lots of people like them. I just get frustrated when people assume that because something isn't to their tastes, it must not be to anybody's tastes. I have a lot of stuff in my life to give me heartburn - work, politics, the news, family, all the usual stuff - and I watch racing for FUN. That's all I want out of it; a chance to watch some fast cars racing while I kick back and enjoy. It ain't always perfect, and sure there are things I'd change, but in general, I just try not to get too worked up over it. I mean geez, there are guys getting shot overseas right now who would LOVE to chill and watch a race. The least I can do is not let little things get me worked up!
So there you go - that's my outlook on racing. This **** is supposed to be FUN, dammit! So this is a place where we can talk about the racing we enjoy, without it turning into a war. You didn't like a street race? No problem! Totally cool. Want to talk about it? Great! The IndyCar forum will I'm sure have three or four threads dedicated to how much the race sucked. In hear, we'll try to keep it to stuff we like.
Now, here's hoping Kentucky ROCKS!
