[Texas PR] Scheduling will be a challenge, but Eddie Gossage is intrigued at the prospect of hosting the season finale of the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series season.
This week’s episode of the More Front Wing podcast covers a review of the events at Chicagoland and Kentucky, discussion of the respective futures of Dan Wheldon and Panther Racing, predictions for the 2011 IICS schedule, an interview with Eddie Gossage, and a look ahead to the AJ Foyt Oval Championship and the status of the overall Series championship heading into Motegi.
In today’s edition of Counterpoint, Paul and Steph weigh the pros and cons of Tuesday’s announcement. First up is Paul’s view against the concept, followed by Steph’s view in favor.
As the speculation surrounding the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series schedule continues at full speed, the latest round of rumors to surface comes courtesy of the new best friend of the Series, Speedway Motorsports, Inc. (SMI), and its mega promoter, Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage.
Much has been made over the past 24 hours regarding the condensing of the schedule for next year’s Indianapolis 500. The gist of the changes are that opening day gets pushed back one full week and the handful of dark-days at the Speedway are now eliminated.
My colleague Steph recently wrote a wonderful post about how IndyCar, as the Series, needs to remember its roots and not forget the working men and women that bought tickets, became devoted followers, and formed the bedrock of open-wheel racing’s success here in America. My only qualm with what Steph wrote is that I don’t think she took it far enough. It’s not only the IZOD IndyCar Series and the Indy Racing League that must remember its roots. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation needs to remember how it become the world’s greatest race course.
