  • Biggest day ever for female open wheelers!

    Erin Crocker is qualified for the "A" at Knoxville. IIRC, the previous best had been Sarah Fisher, who didn't make it past the C. This is Erin's second 410 sprint race ever.

    Let us never forget that we were the ones attacked on 9-11 and over 3000 of our people were killed!!!

            40,000 people at the Knoxville Nationals according to Speedtv.

            But we don't need to court these people to be fans of the IRL...


            Even though 40,000 people in the middle of Iowa does rival attendance at Michigan this year, and nearly triples attendance at California from last year....

            I just had to throw this in.

                  Nope. The irl is doing just fine on it's own. Congrats to Lasoski.

                    WoO is sold out, or close to it, everywhere it goes and now with new ownership it will be taken to a new level. The King's Royal at Eldora draws over 30,000 every year, also.

                    As good a production as last night was, seeing them in person is even more gut wrenching. The power from these little machines always just goes to the pit of my very ample stomach.
                    Have a very blessed day!

                        I told you guys before the season to keep an eye on her.

                        Sure glad to see her do well at Knoxville. Super nice young lady.

                          40,000?

                          I sent an E-Mail to Knoxville, asking them what their seating
                          capacity was. They gave me the number as 25,000.

                          Must have included everyone in the pits & infield.

                              Crocker

                              I've had the pleasure of watching Erin Crocker in her Mike Woodring backed 360 ESS sprint car over the past few years. She's a talented driver and seems to do very well with a wing strapped on the car. She has struggled with getting the handle on running a Crown car and I believe Woodring is attempting to sell their USAC program. They may be buying new equipment???

                              Either way, I'd love to see her stick with it and I'm sure with a little more seat time, she could be one heck of a Crown driver. She's got a good head on her shoulders and is a graduate of R. Poly-Tech Institute. I've heard that Lynn St. James has also taken an interest in her racing career...
