Sad Passing and Continuing Evolution

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 10:12 am

Mike Hollander, a man who can legitimately claim a founding role in Internet racing discussion, passed away at 61. Those of us who regularly exchange banter on various Internet outlets today and who used to discover interesting things including Compuserve’s Racing Information Service way back when owe Mike a debt of gratitude for blazing that particular trail. RIP, Mike.

Racing evolution continues unabated. The leader, as always, is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. One now traditional fall event is disassembly of a grandstand to refurbish it prior to reassembly in time for racing in 2009. The grandstand being shined up this time is part of the NW Vista.

 

Thanks, IMS, for keeping that place the landmark it is. I am unsure whether it is too late for folks to take advantage of the behind the scenes grounds tour, but if it isn’t that is also a great value and very informative.
