  • Forget Open Wheel Unification - Ever

    Kevin Kalkhoven has made it clear that the feud will continue, and that he intends to be a feud participant.
    From Speedtv.com - "Everyone agrees it would be better to have a single series. However, we have extended an olive branch on several occasions, but always to no avail. We no longer work with that possibility in our future planning.”
    NASCAR will continue to rake in the large piles of $$$$$$$$$.

    Or, in an amazing development, sports writers will focus not on the split but the great racing each series offers, and fans will enjoy 2 different series.

    For some reason, we can literally have 100 different types of salad dressing to choose from these days, but we have to be force fed the concept that only one series is desirable.

    I like both series, always have, and especially enjoyed getting many more oval races than CART 1995 was offering. Felt like a kid watching his parents fight most of the time.

    The year we go thru a season without talking about reunification will be the best thing for both series. Writers have become lazy, they dust off the same reunification article they wrote 6 years ago.

            We don't always see eye to eye, but I agree with you completely.

            Leave the road races to OWRS and the Ovals to IRL and everybody will be happy.... well, more than are happy now anyway.

              To paraphrase Don Bardzini (Richard Conte) in Godfather I, "So there will be the peace, the trafficing in racing will be separate but controlled. Mr. Kalkoven will work in the streets and Mr. George will provide political protection with ISC tracks." And all there is to do is wait for the baptism of Connie's baby.

                How many professional hockey series are there?
                Football?
                Basketball?
                Baseball?

                Salad dressing is different from sport. Besides, I'd bet most salad dressing companies actually make a profit. Novel concept, I know.

                            I never understood why anybody would be interested in unification, they are two distinct series with different cars, tracks and fans. A unified series would always have too many roads/streets for oval fans and too many ovals for road/street fans, guaranteed disappointment for everyone. I think that the IRL should stick to ovals with Indy as the centerpiece and CCWS should stick to roads/streets. I think the only unification that is needed is to cease the trash talking from both sides and perhaps try to work the schedules so that there are no competing events and they can focus their efforts to attempt to make a dent in NASCAR instead of trying to kill each other.

                              I'd be glad to if he had posted a link.
