In IndyCar the formula is that a driver has to be just good enough to get around the track without hurting himself or anyone else + bring a check, bingo your an IndyCar driver!
Its simple, for the very most part this is a pay for your ride series. And the fans get to watch the cool cars out there with guys behind the wheel who may not be the most talented open wheel drivers in the world, but they do come from money.
As a fan, when you accept the series for what it is, it's not that bad... it's just different. I say, enjoy!
