IndyCar got a mention in the Cleveland Plain Dealer in an AP article (Jenna Fryer) on Penske's hot start in both Cup and IICS. I'm waiting to see if the PD sends a writer (Elton Alexander) to cover the 500 again (They usually send him to Indy and Mid-Ohio). They also run short wire blurbs on the IndyCar and F1 races. It's not that open wheel is completely ignored, it's just well behind NASCAR in coverage.
Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:
INDYCAR - NOW IZODIER THAN EVER!
my blog ... I'm not a big fat woodchuck, I'm THE big fat woodchuck.
How can the largest one-day sporting event in the world have so much trouble being known? Also, for 100 years, indy cars have put Indianapolis on the map. They are the only reason the world knows about Indianapolis. How can it be this screwed up?
And yes, TG can take his share of the blame. I always thought that Tony Hulman was rolling over in his grave...
