The Indy Car Off Season Was Too Long! Let’s Go Racing.

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 1:43 am

It is almost time to get down to the nitty-gritty. The long off season wait is about to end. The rubber is about to meet the road. Time to put up or shut up.

It is almost time for St. Pete. Several story lines have emerged. Among them:

-Not so fast on the fastest 26. It might embarrass sponsors. So if you show up and you are within the speed window, you are in.

-Marco Andretti made some less than flattering remarks about Tony Kanaan in Racer. Bad teammate, aloof, etc. Tony responded by suggesting Marco win some races and a championship prior to engaging his yap. That Andretti team does not seem to have the same chemistry it did when Kanaan was teamed with Franchitti and Wheldon, and Green was involved. It will be interesting to see what how they do without Tony.

-Dale Coyne seems to have reloaded with some quality folk after he experienced a lot of turnover. Sebastien Bourdais is now teamed up with Phil LaPan and that combination could be potent. Plus, Dale has a ride buyer in another car paying a lot of the bills.

-Tony Kanaan at KV is intriguing as well. Hopefully that entire team can keep their machines off walls and win some races.

-Most fell in love with Simona last year. Will she have a sophomore slump?

-Many of the stars are making the rounds in New York in two minute increments on various programs humping the start of the season.

As we wind our way toward the weekend, let’s hope for two things: Sunny skies and someone in victory lane other than a Ganassi or a Penske car.

  1. Andretti racing is sounding like a houseful of Whoops, they are the only ones that can do anything right, I waiting for some results, Kanaan will finish higher in points than any Andretti car or driver.
