  • Poll: Which type of oval racing do you prefer?

    I couldn't help notice the drivers in the nascar atlanta race were lifting during turns.
    Contrast that do most Indycars oval racing where the right foot is fully planted and no lifting occurs...even at Indy.

    So which racing do you prefer?

    high downforce setup that allow no lifting and closer (maybe even pack) racing but also require less drivers input.

    Low downforce setup that require the drivers to lift, even shift, through a corner. Require more drivers' input but also may lead to spread out field
    139
    Full throttle racing that feaures closer racing but less drivers' input.
    32.37%
    45
    Setup that requires drivers to lift throttle. More driver's input but also more spread out field.
    67.63%
    94

      If it's open wheel on an oval, I love it.

        I like a little lift and drift , but qualifications at Indy were about "flat out" setups years before the Split. Doing it right takes some kinda skills and balls.

          I like 'em both, but the races I've attended at Chicagoland and Texas were more fun to watch than the races I attended at Iowa and Richmond. But just barely.
          Life's a reach, and then you jibe.

            I like them all. I have been to Indy, Motegi, Las Vegas, Michigan and Kentucky. They all bring something to the table.

              During the actual race at Indy, there a very few totally flat out laps turned.

                All oval racing!!!

                America is oval racing. I love the balls to the wall all out every lap stuff as well as gas it down the straits and lift (maybe even brake) going into the corners stuff. It all requires drivers input and only uniformed think other wise.

                    Where's a both option. I will not vote until there is one because I like both.

                      I don't like pack racing. To me that is a big difference between Indycar and Nascar- in Nascar after 400 miles the field looks pretty much like it did on the first lap but just in different orders. In Indycars that is never the case.

                        I voted for the "setup" option.

                        I've never liked the pack races. But the formula does work pretty well at Indy, I've got to admit.

                          Chose the second option. I really like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and The Milwaukee Mile.

                            The kind that doesn't involve having road/street races on the schedule.

                              I voted close and fast. I think the driver has "input" in all forms of racing. Making the racing less safe doesn't make it any better, imho.
                              Have a very blessed day!
