IndyCar » Official: Randy Bernard exits as series CEO


It's hard to believe that the board would be foolish enough to take a step backward like this. Roger Penske was quoted as saying you can't manage a business (which is exactly what Indy Car is) by replacing the top manager every few years. 2012 produced the best open wheel racing that the U.S. has seen in many years. An American champion, oval racing where you actually had to drive the car, lot's of passing on road courses and 8 different winners. An extremely short sighted decision.

IndyCar » 19-race IndyCar season unveiled for 2013


@ Sir Charles. You hit the nail right on the head. People start peeing a ring around themselves by criticizing Indy Car as a "spec" series. That's one of the most effective way to hold down costs. I like the idea of varying the starts and the double header weekends should be good. Two full points paying races in one weekend. There are too many street circuits, but for now that's the best way to get people in the stands and to grow t.v. exposure. Great to see Pocono on the schedule. I'm looking forward to another outstanding season next year.

IndyCar » Hunter-Reay survives thriller to win title


Congratulations to RHR and Andretti Racing. A few weeks ago I would have thought their season was over, especially after Tags punted RHR out of contention at Sonoma. He came back at Baltimore and did what he had to do at Fontana. A very worthy champion. I have to feel for Will Power. He's obviously the fastest road racer in the series. He's improved his oval skills the last few years also. The poor guy must be wondering what he has to do to win a title.

MotoGP » Kevin Schwantz files lawsuit against COTA


I found copies of the lawsuit Tavo filed against COTA. He makes allegations of contract violations,failure to make timely payments and being squeezed out. The fact that there was an out-of-court settlement for an "undisclosed amount" tells me there was merit to the charges. I would be willing to bet that the same thing happened to Kevin. He and Tavo were the only ones involved with a strong passion for motorsports. I hope Kevin wins the lawsuit!
