Let’s Get the Football Out of the Way So We Can RACE!

For a price (it’s an auction) you can drive in the celebrity race on the streets of Long Beach. Believe it or not, that is probably the only temporary street circuit abomination that actually works, as evidenced by its long history and great promotion. I have attended that ‘race’ in the past, and while the atmosphere is definitely party-like, it is not a race course.


I will miss, terribly, Michigan and Nashville this year. I believe Pikes Peak was/is the finest one miler in the country. The fact that Indy Racing no longer races on these tracks is appalling.


I hope the Andretti team makes listening on their frequencies easier. Mikey engineering Danica is a headphone and ears match made in heaven. It is potential eardrum damage material from shrillness if nothing else. I can hardly wait to hear that. Oddly, I think the two of them have chemistry and may well connect as driver/choreographer. Mikey knew exactly what he wanted and needed behind the wheel, and I think there is a potentially powerful bond that could occur. Both seem to have equally hard heads and temperaments, and it could work.


Speaking of Danica, her Super Bowl spots for Go Daddy are already receiving media attention. Although the content is predictably sleazy and over the top, who cares? It’s a spot destined to air in a football game, which is still not sold out. As of today, 6 :30 avails remain, and rates are down.


Wonder whether the idiots will concoct a way to blame it on Tony George?

  1. Nashville is a boring track with a meager fan base. It looked big because the grandstands only house 30 to 40 thousand seats. It’s as boring in person as it is to watch on tv, and that’s about as boring as Belle Isle. Don’t miss it.
