The Skiing Is Great

Lots of snow in the Colorado Rockies….time for breakfast before the lifts open for one last day this trip….meantime:

The economic mess claimed the God-awful Belle Isle event for 2009. At least that is what Roger Penske says, and he is a pretty smart guy. On one hand this is a sad development because the Indy Car Series loses an event. On the other, it presents a golden opportunity for the Indy Car Series to return Indy Car to its rightful Michigan venue, MIS. Losing that event borders on criminal, and this is an opportunity to make it right. Unfortunately, knowing how their collective intellect functions, some place like Cleveland or Elkhart Lake is much more likely.


As a fan and if I get a vote, I vote for a return to the Irish Hills. Like that will happen.


Some of the more vociferous ignorant hilljack rednecks who prefer the ‘stock’ cars but spend an inordinate amount of time slamming Indy Car and possess no signs of actual sportsmanship continue moistening their loins with the news that Sam Hornish Jr. crashed more often than anyone else last season. This jean creaming manifests itself in all sorts of barely literate, badly spelled trash talking.


The primary Foyt Racing sponsor, ABC Supply, re-upped for two more years. More proof of the economic bang for the buck power of Indy Racing, even in uncertain times.


I’ve come to the conclusion that the US automakers should not receive any bailout whatsoever. They made their beds. They need to lie in them, even if it does additional damage to the economy. Most foreign manufacturers have figured out how to build cars people want in this country with very few of the problems that plague Detroit. Let nature take its course once and for all.

  1. Auto racing aside, I am very jealous of everything you do. That is why I stalk your every word in cyberspace.
