  • PT on Speed channel

    PT was interviewed on Speed at Barrett-Jackson on Thursday. He said he just got back from the IRL race in Japan. If the PR department can't get the drivers to say Izod Indy Car, then how are fans and the media to know to say Izod Indy Car?

    Yup. I saw it too. Marketing is a joke with IndyCar. Always has been always will!

      Reread your post then edit.
      Possibly a good question.

          Good job!
          Good question.
          It would seem the Izod term is not bandied about enough for it to be a catch phrase amount the participants.
          Perhaps the teams and PR department should be jogged a bit by Izod and encouraged to get with the program.

            Gee, that's a very objective comment. "Always has been, all ways will". Sounds like the comments from a sour F1 fan. Always is a very broad word.

                Uh, A) He doesnt have a ride in ICS, and B) Do you honestly think he gives a metric **** what some stupid marketing peon tells him to call the series? He probably made a point to call it IRL just to ruffle some feathers, and for that, more power to him.

                You shouldnt have any allegiance to this bumbling, ridiculous series, unbereft of management failures and personal agendas... unless your paycheck is sourced from it. As a fan, you should have allegiance to your ideals and what you think its racing should be.

                  Why are you on this forum if you feel this way? Why aggravate yourself all the time?

                      Absolutely agree, but I must ask why should a PR department need to be prodded by anybody? Their job is to do the prodding and the projecting. These current guys are hopeless from top to bottom. RB could do worse than to clean house heavily in the entire department starting at the top.

                        Yeah, why didn't they fly somebody out to follow PT around in case he mis-spoke?

                              Hey, it's not Tracy's job to worry about that, he's there to talk racing.
