The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

IRL’s IndyCar, Champ Car reach agreement on merger

Indy

Open wheel fans can rejoice in the fact that the series is whole again, after twelve years of damages to open wheel racing.  In the end a stalemate and understanding that they both need each other forced them together.  This year IRL would have had only 16 cars running and Champ Car with 13.  All that time and money lost was a plus for NASCAR.

 

Tony George offset the cost of the new car the Champ Car just developed last year by giving a free car and 1.25 million dollars to each team per car for the running of the full circuit.  For the 2008 race year, three of Champ Car’s venues will be added to the current IndyCar schedule and more to be added for the 2009 year.

 

More details to be released Thursday or Friday on Speed Channels Website SPEEDtv.com
