  • Flooding IMS with pro-oval mail?

    What do you think, guys? Shall we start a snail-mail (NOT EMAIL - email is too easy to ignore) campaign to tell Tony and the IRL that we want to stay oval-only?

    Anybody got the address?
    I'm from a place called the internet. Nothing disturbs me.

    Unless you throw $100 in each envelope, i think it may fall on deaf ears...

      I don't know if it will work or not (it's likely it won't), but it wouldn't hurt to try.

      Cygni, stop being so negative. I know CART is going down the crapper, but come on, you don't have to take it out on the IRL.

        Not ONLY will you get road racing, but throw in a couple of STREET races, too...

        Really! Wait and see.

        The almighty dollar (whether it's American or Canadian) is at work. That's much more powerful than anything a fan says.:mad:

          Well this fan has just about had it. The IRL will be nothing more than a feeder and retirement series for F1 when they have completed their transformation.
          I would think by now that this administration would have a clue as to what it takes to get the job done. So, Get-er-done!!!!!

            What leaves me scratching my head is that many CART fans HATE Tony George, so if the IRL goes to a couple of CART haunts, the CART fans I know will not attend.
            The "hard core" IRL fans, who like the oval only format are ticked off at the thought of a few street/road races (witness the rhetoric out here), and several I know vow not to attend any IRL races if that happens...
            There are few OW fans left now....seems to me that this is only going to make things WORSE, not BETTER.

            Or...am I missing something here???

                Here's my take on it:

                The fans that would send mail are, for the most part, hardcore IRL fans.

                I can't imagine that anyone at 16th and Georgetown has their head so far in the sand that they don't know what those fans think.

                They just don't care.

                  How about a pettition?

                      Address???

                      We should make sure all the mail goes to one location!

                      Fans served by an oval track ( NH, Vegas, Charlotte, Houston, Iowa, Dover, Pocono, etc.) that does not have an IRL race should point that fact out to Mr. Barnhardt!

                      Nascar doesn't need Canada, why should the IRL?

                            Ganassifan, You've read my mind. I don't think I could ever give up Indy, but I wouldn't walk across the street for a free RR. Especially one where I can't even pronounce the drivers names. I guess the channel changer will take me to NASCAR, if that's where I have to go to watch my favorite drivers that I watched on the short track ovals.
