I have a rare opportunity to take a grown man to both the Toronto Molson ‘Indy’ (well, not really Indy, but what's a little dishonesty, particularly outside the border?) c^rt race this weekend, and then to the IRL’s big Michigan Genuine, Real, Authentic Indy race. This guy has never been to an auto race. Never watched one on television. Is only mildly aware of NASCAR. Lived in DC; moved to Boston; now works with me. Had NO idea about ‘the split’ until we met a friend of mine for lunch today in Toronto who is a huge c^rt fan. She started spouting off like some of the c^rt morons who hang out here, and I had to set her straight while he listened intently.
Anyway, he’s getting excited, and I told him I want an objective judgement about which he prefers and why. I’ll be reporting my unscientific findings after the Michigan race. He’s heard both sides of the ‘split’ thingy, so he’s aware of the landscape now.
So far he enjoys the scantily clad Molson ‘Indy’ girls.
