    I would love to go... yep, you heard it... mark the time, Brian said he wants to go watch a race! That is the first sign of the apocolypse right?

    It's the second. The first was me and Clones_Jer agreeing on something later last week.

    Re: Iowa Corn Indy 250 IndyCar Series Event

    I'm going as well. I'm not a huge IRL fan but the chance to see major professional racing in Iowa is too much to pass up. Those guys will be going 180 mph on a 7/8 mile track...that is amazing.

    Also, attendance is going to be key. If Iowa makes a good showing, that would leave the door open for NASCAR Truck or Busch Series races in the future.

    I have a website I'm building devoted mainly to Indycars. Still a work in progress but I hope some of you will look at it.

    Just returned from my 44th consecutive Indy 500 so I'm probably the most hardcore fan around here.

    Thats a pretty cool site. I may contact you with questions on how to improve mine. Mines pretty generic but it gets the job done New Page 1

    What is your take on the IRL and their affect on the Indy 500? I am of the opinion while this is still a HUGE race, it has lost a little of it's appeal due to the IRL.

    Re: Iowa Corn Indy 250 IndyCar Series Event

    I'm going to go a few weeks later when they have some real racing that doesn't involve going around in circles.


    I am happy to see that they have a sold out show.

    First day at the track

    Since a couple people were interested, here is a little bit of my first day at the track. It's not linked to my homepage yet but here is the direct link.

    Re: Iowa Corn Indy 250 IndyCar Series Event

    I'm curious... ESPN is marketing this as the Ethanol 250 at Iowa... Is there more than one race or are they calling it two different things?

    My friend got us 2nd or 3rd row seat right at the Start/Finish line. Since it is Newton Club you also get pit passes

    I have been to races where ABC will not call the race by the sponsors name because the sponsorship package was not enough. Or maybe the title sponsor has to pay the network a certain amount to get mentioned. I'm not sure of all the details.

    Re: Iowa Corn Indy 250 IndyCar Series Event

    I'm headed there. Never done anything like this before.
    Question though: Should I get some sort of a scanner to listen to the race teams?
