An unintended source of humor for many of us racing fans is the statistics section of the IndyCar Series on the IndyCar web site. It seems they only go back to 1996 and pre-asset fire sale acquisition records only include IRL races and drivers. As one might imagine this drives the hardcore cart enthusiasts who refuse to budge from the early 1990s absolutely nuts. Their cacophony of whining, crying and griping (but mostly by the predictable few prone to such animalistic behavior) remains shrill as they attempt to position themselves as victims.
Here is my advice. Grow the f%&# up. The sense of false entitlement the more vociferous a-holes of that ilk possess is as ludicrous as some African-descended American demanding reparation payment from the government because his/her great-great-great-great-great grandparents may have been slaves.
There are plenty of places to find Indy Car historic records that date back to the very earliest part of the 1900s. There are plenty of places to find Indy Car historic records that include cart and champcar statistics, and there are plenty of places where folks can find just cart and champcar statistics. The selective victimization these idiots attempt to foist should have run its course a long time ago. The IndyCar Series of today owes these people nothing, and the statistics pages of the IndyCar web site reflect that. So get over it. You people made your own mess. Don’t expect others to clean it up the way you see fit.
If these people were actual fans in it for the grace and purity of the sport none of this would be an issue. I suspect it isn’t for those who are mature adults and enjoy the sport of motor racing. After all, isn’t the racing the most important thing?
