      My favorite is 1992. The first two minutes are incredible.

        I was watching Spike TV a few weeks back and Delta Force just happened to be on. I got goose bumps EVERY time the theme music came on. The music and Paul Page's voice combined cannot be beat.

        Speaking of Paul Page, I would like to see him make a return to IRL. I don't know who they have doing the races, but Scott Goodyear and Larry Rice put me to sleep.

                These have now inspired a new signature line as well. I suppose after about three years of having Little Al, it was time for something new.

                  Thank God TG installed those warm up lanes! Those crashes were brutal before them, it's amazing not more drivers were killed. That one of Piquet is stomach turning....

                    Although over the top at times, this one gave me goosebumps too.

                    I will agree however, the old Delta Force intros were simple, to the point, and fun...

                        Without the Indy motif.

                          Ok.... the footage is awesome, the music is downright awful. Sounds like John Parr's St. Elmo's Fire theme song -- very dated.

                            My personal favorite was in '89 when they used The Cure's "Disintegration" album throughout the pre-race coverage.

                              In a lot of ways I think ABC took a page out of CBS's goose-bump inducing NFL intros with Pat Summerall--and they did a great job.

                              Paul Page's narrative, plus the music, plus the video were works of art.

                              My two favorites: 1990 "Two drivers mastering the raging power of a high tech wonder..."

                              The 1994 intro with "Mario's eyes" is the best in my opinion.
