    ...in describing or referencing the series it's IndyCar. In talking about the history of open-wheel racing and encompassing all sanctioning bodies of the sport in the past it's Indycar....IMO.

      I can agree with that. Part of me thinks that when talking about the car it should be "Indy car" or "Indy-car" though.

      Sort of the same way you wouldn't say, "Hey, looks at those NASCARs".

      I like the looks of Indycar best though.

        Agreed. I hate the modern trend of miscapitalization and overuse/misuse of hyphens.
        No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

          We could be really cool if we made the plural "IndyCarz"...

          or maybe "NDCarz"

          We could even make one of the letters backwards.

          Hey, why not, it seems to work for the boy bands.

            If they wanted to make it ultramodern, it would be ndcrz, so that kids everywhere would have to text only five characters to their friends between episodes of The O.C.

              Separate words, for heaven's sake. This isn't Orwell, the year is 2008, and we're not speaking Newspeak. Besides, the word Indy should stand on its own.

                  You expressed my thoughts exactly. Indy Car, two words.

                        I would have thought those favoring separate words would have favored "Indy car" over "Indy Car". No one has voted for Indy car though.

                          I've always kinda attributed IndyCar to being more than just about Indy. To me it's also indy as in "independant", different. It's history of mixing it up on all types of tracks (road/street/oval) made it different from F-1. When there was that nice mix of tracks (which hopefully we can get back to) it really separated these drivers as the best in the world. I am really hoping for the future to get back to what used to be very successful.

                            I'd say we're there with the addition of the 3 CC races. 50/50 will follow shortly.

                              My vote = "Any of the above"

                              As long as people are talking about Indy cars and IndyCar racing, I don't care how they spell it.
