Indy Car Series: The Good News Keeps Arriving

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 2:03 am

Things that put a smile on my face are sponsored Indy Cars. That happened today to a guy who really deserves it. Will Power will pilot the Penske #12 with Verizon sponsorship, and this time it is full time. That is outstanding and ensures another quality effort for 2010. The Verizon folks have a nice web page devoted to this and their other motorsports efforts with Penske.

A driver who had a pretty pronounced sophomore slump was E.J. Viso. Word has it he will be returning with a new team next season, and that is also great news.

Sponsor activation…two words all racing fans should like these days!



  1. good for power, but also very happy to see a big-time sponsor like Verizon on a car. i’ll be curious about the sponsorship on the other two Penske cars.

  2. First Izod, and now Verizon and 3 cars for the captain. The hits keep coming for the repressive, offensive ones, as this product is proving to outlast, outlive and survive the truest test….the test of time With a fickle, ever changing fan, and the onslaught of internal family infighting and our fans falling by the wayside at break record pace, nothing can stop the IICS from its self generated internal momentum into the next generation of IndyCar of which I patiently await. The removal of the Marlboro teet from the moths of our fanbase makes us stronger. The arrival of Versus has been a Godsend in so many different ways. More coverage is actually better you know. When Brazil happens, watch out for international sponsors to flock to the IICS because of it’s mass appeal and value added return on investment. I shall bring my Portuguese friends from the islands.

    Yes indeed, the good news does keep rolling on and on and on, as we await the magical month of May.

  3. viso was said by danica as an inferior driver. since i follow danica i believe her first and when she says that viso is a poor driver i think poor drivers are bad for the series.

    this league had better be about what danica wants first. she’s a good role model to daughters across america and gives the league a promotional boost they couldn’t buy.
    don’t you try to tell me that viso is good for the series.. chesson was good but that was all about indy and he wasnt a bad driver either.

    you need to promote drivers that can promote the series.

    • You are frankly, one of the most unintelligent, inane posters ever to post at any location about this sport. You clearly know nothing about this sport. Please don’t embarrass yourself any further by posting your ignorant drivel.

  4. well well well, looks like curt cavin wants ben bowlby to put a car out that looks like a motorcycle and sounds like a turbine. well I got news for that newspaperman who apparently doesnt respect the indy tradition too much. Putting a motorcycle out there is like humpty wheeler putting fenders on our indycars. I am all about tradition ant indy. Since 1997 I have known what Indy means and it is about Mr. Georges vision of American and foreign drivers getting along together to make the world a better place to race and live and having races on all of the different circuits that the world wants our series.
    Its not about a damn motorcycle looking IndyCar.

    Thats just plain riludicrous.
