  • Incoming -- A new book on the split by John Oreovicz

    I don't mean to upset anyone, but a new book, "Indy Split - The Big Money Battle that Nearly Destroyed Indy Racing" by John Oreovicz is on the horizon.

    Sounds like an interesting read.

    I enjoy ancient history.

    See what I did there? 😉

      I'm not upset. I believe I will pass. I am still waiting for someone to tell an accurate and unbiased story about the true split in 1978. And considering many of the principles are gone, that's not gonna happen.

      Knowing Oreo's slant, it won't happen in his book about the 1996 version either.

            I am sure he will sum that up with one photo.

                Now, which of three options of pictures available is most suitable to prove the superiority of the quality of the starting field within the of the IRL 500 over that of the field in the US500???

                1) Scott Harrington spinning between the back rows of the field behind a yellow flag after running into the rear of the field at turn T3 in lap 5.
                2) Eliseo Salazar changing lanes in the warm-up lane to cut the corner and bumping into Arie Luyendyk who coincidentally ran in that piece of warm-up lane Salazar wanted to take.
                3) Eliseo Salazar pushing Davy Jones into the inside wall at ther restart of the race at lap 169?


                And the winner is ........

                          I used to feel frustrated and antagonized by Oreovicz's frustration and antagonism against Tony George , because I always believed TG was trying to do the right thing.

                          It will be interesting to see how Oreovicz looks back, though I doubt much has changed his mind. I almost always learn something from others' perspectives.
