I'm not sure how old the readers of this site are, but Indycar has long roots! Indycar, IRL, CART, or just USAC. Whoever the organising or sanctioning body, they are cars uniquely designed to race at the Indianapolis Speedway. It has always been a spec race of some kind! The early Indy races always used to start with the drivers lined up along the infield fence, then running across the track to their cars backed diagonally along the outside fence. They jumped into the cars, started their engines, tore down the track as they buckled in! It was amazing! Although I don't remember any injuries, I do remember drivers talking about not getting their harnesses buckleed until the 2nd or 3rd lap. It was changed to an in-car standing start, & then a rolling start! So yes, Indy has a very long history, yes they have many traditions, and despite all the complaining, it is the most interesting, compedative racing leagues. It is not a juniour race to F1. Why do you think former F1 champion
