More IZOD IndyCar Series Good News as 2011 Draws Near

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 12:01 am

As we rush headlong into 2011, good news keeps arriving for the IZOD IndyCar Series during silly season. Tony Kanaan is confirmed full time for de Ferren Dragon Racing driving Rafa Matos’ old ride. This presumably means Rafa is headed back to Brazil. I tried to find out, but the news link on their web site is kaput. Hopefully this potentially great team can find enough sponsorship for a two-car effort. Thanks for some cool thrills, Rafa.

There was also a big announcement about a new commemorative United States Postal Service stamp celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500. The Defender family plans to buy a bunch. This is also great news, but the problem is hardly anyone uses the Postal Service anymore and certainly not many in the 18-34 demo. Still, great news. Although anyone can put any picture they want on a stamp now for the right price. But I digress.

I remain optimistic the IZOD IndyCar Series and anniversary 100 will get the press it deserves. Hopefully the braintrust at 16th & Georgetown will be adequately able to spread the word.

  1. I think they’re updating the de Ferran Dragon website.

    Happy for TK with his new deal but really hope they can keep Matos on. I like him.
