  • The Best and the Worst Indy car races in 2005

    With the Indy car season over what were the three best Indy car races this year.
    My choices would be:
    1.89th Indianapolis 500 - I have been watching the '500' every year since 1998 and in that time period this certainly was the best one. Awesome racing on the track combined with a lot of different strategical moves from the teams and good TV ratings made this year's '500' a great success and a very enjoyable show.
    2.Chicagoland Indy 400 - there are many big high banked ovals in the IRL (Michigan, Calfifornia, Kansas, etc) but for some reason the racing there isn't as exciting as Chicagoland. This year wasn't an exception. Banzai Briscoe's crash did spoil the show somewhat but other than that the race was awesome
    3.A.J. Foyt Indy 225, Milwaukee - the first part of the race wasn't that good with the two Penskes running away but then it was awesome. The contact between Sam and Helio added a lot of excitement and then Sam's awesome run to pass the AGR guys and Scheckter's late move for second. Another race worth being mentioned in the annals of the Milwaukee Mile history.

    Races I did not like:
    California - a lot of reasons. The racing wasn't as good as at many other tracks and the controversy at the finish didn't improve things. Still a pretty good show but certainly not as good as the majority of the other races

        best: Indy, Texas, Michigan, Kansas

        Worst: road coures except St. Pete, and I believe Pikes Peak was a snoozer as well
        No where in your rambling incoherent response did you come close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. We are all dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

          Worst: Infineon, Pikes Peak, Motegi - I just hate the fuel conservation "races".

            INDY + Chicagoland

            Worst:

            Anyplace they turned right (I did half-way enjoy the Glen, however).

                      We took it for our own!

                        Indianapolis was one of the best if you watch it muted.

                            There was a bad IRL race this year?

                              Huh???

                              Worst I got to watch, at least partially:

                              Sonoma, Ft. Lauderdale, Homestead


                              See that! Proof that the IRL season dragged on too long this year. They had a race at the new Ft. Lauderdale Super Speedwaydrome, and I completely missed it. :mad:

                              That would have been nice to see the waves of the Atlantic lapping on the beach as my favorite drivers lapped on the track.
