    I said this 8 weeks ago and was bashed by then-CCWS fans. All they had to do was call XM.

    My how things have changed since 8 weeks ago.

        More from XM

        XM is a major associate sponsor of Andretti Green Racing's No. 7 Honda-powered Dallara driven by Danica Patrick, 2005’s Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year. The AGR team, featuring IndyCar Series drivers Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti and Tony Kanaan as well as team co-owner and open wheel racing legend Michael Andretti, will launch the second season of "The Andretti Green Racing Hour," a one-hour show airing exclusively on XM. The show will begin airing in its weekly time slot March 25 at 7 p.m. ET on XM Sports Nation (XMSN), channel 144.

        "XM is committed to bringing fans the full experience of open-wheel racing, from the prep in the pits to the wheel-to-wheel action on the track," said Kevin Straley, XM senior vice president of news, talk, and sports programming. "This is an especially exciting year for IRL as it joins forces with Champ Car, and fans across the country can hear all the races on XM."

        "Being the leaders in open-wheel racing and satellite radio respectively, the IndyCar Series and XM Satellite Radio form a natural partnership," said John Lewis, vice president for marketing and league development, Indy Racing League.

          This reminds me....re-up with XM for 3 years...bill due next week. ICS and MLB are the only real reasons I have the network.

          Being associated with open wheel racing for XM is like buying a stock at $1.50 and with unification the P/E ratio just went from $3.00 to $30.00. The potential for growth on Ch. 145 is enormous considering the shows and podcasts popping up from IndyCar.com and open wheel affiliated websites. Not to mention the archives of IMS radio and CART's vaults (that they are merging into one as we speak).

          Wouldn't it be nice to happen upon the 1972 Indianapolis 500 in full broadcast including old commercials, listen to the Mike King Show, the repeat of Open Wheel Wednesday with Powershift, get the show from Kelly's Bar on 10th Street that is local to Indy, then ease into the replay of the CART Grand Prix of Long Beach from 1987? Of course, Robin Miller and Dave "The King" Wilson would have original programs, as well.

          I'd love to run that channel!

          I am geeked for 2008. We are at the cusp of greatness. I am assembling the new smoker and planning ribs for the evening of 3/29 with garlic mash potatoes and checkered flag pie!

                No. I believe I initiated the thread on this subject, and was confused.

                There were many people like me, Indycar fans and XM subscribers that found it depressing that the IRL channel was killed and all mention of the IRL was removed from xmradio.com. I am very happy that the IRL is back on XM.

                  You asked the question. The 'experts' chimed in.

                  I wasn't calling you out at all.

                    I have had XM pretty much from the start. Having the IRL is a plus. Not to mention ACC sports.
