    I signed up for a trial subscription and read the article. Actual industry folks are much more positive about the IRL than most of us around here. One person even said title sponsorship of the IRL at 10 million was a "steal".

      "The Indy Racing League brought to you by Chia Pet".


      They could issue little chia "pet" race cars as collectible items. You would have to water your chia race car and wait until it grew to see which car you have.

      Forget Pokeman, this is going to be HUGE.

          They should check with Bridgestone and Ford. I hear they aren't going to be doing that much by the middle of next year.

              $10 million, dang that is dirt cheap. Come on Corporate America, get behind this machine. Step up and help us sell it to the American People. Let's go now.

              Hey, I have a couple bucks if anyone want's to go in and help save oval track racing with me. If we sponsor the series we can demand a no Right Turns. Come on Track Forum

                Old School,

                While a landfill is close, Gateway is not the end of the world. Whats Up?

                I heard Fed Ex was interested in Sponsoring CART Jr.

                Heck,

                Get CARL Jr's to sponsor CART Jr. (Carl Jr. = Hardees West Coast)

                What irks me (maybe its too soon for the truth), DW was a 16-oval WIN specialist, yet the vast majority those boohooing for him, hardcarders & fans, alike are the same ones trying to kill anything with more than 9 deg banking & 4 corners, where Dan ultimately made his home...

                  The Trackforum Indy Racing League featuring the Trackforum IndyCar Series and the Trackforum Infinity Pro Series.

                    Maybe CART should take thier last $10 million and sponsor the IRL for a year. That would surely boost CART's image! "CART Presents the IRL... America's All Oval Open Wheel Seires."

                        How about ten million short track fans and call it the "No Right Turns IRL Series"?

                            Actually, Carls bought Hardees and is starting to phase its menu out... so its more like Hardees is Carls East Coast. Besides, Carls actually has GOOD food...

                              Since I am the TrackForum title sponsor, maybe I should consider taking it to the next level...
