• Saying Something...It's Worth A Shot!!



      I'm so incensed by this whole tragic incident and the horrific history of the IRL/ICS that I simply cannot stand by while they hide the truth and ignore driver safey for the sake of ratings. I don't know who to contact or how to make an impact, but I have to try. With that in mind, I just sent an email to the ACCUS offices in Denver, CO, encouraging an investigation:

      "I wish to encourage ACCUS and FIA to investigate the circumstances of the recent fatal incident at the Indycar Series event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Latest reports indicate ICS will internally investigate without ACCUS or FIA involved. I strongly oppose this move and hope ACCUS and FIA will look deeply into ICS chassis design, safety procedures and decision making, as it has long been obvious that ICS does not prioritize safety and has not investigated previous fatal and non-fatal incidents with integrity or transparency. I implore ACCUS and FIA not to allow the circumstances of this tragic incident to be obfuscated by the ICS. The lives of many professional racing drivers are at stake. I thank you for your time and consideration."

      Might not have any impact at all, but it's damned well worth a shot. I encourage everyone else to send a note to ACCUS or whoever you think might do some good. At least we'll know we haven't stood idly by while more drivers die.

      Guess Rosberg will be 2nd in the championship once again. He dominated the first couple of races and now Hamilton has completely taken over. Guess he

      The problem with winning Mindy now is that it meant nothing. NAPA didn't renew their sponsorship after that. Nobody in F1 circles was giving him a call

      Doesn't somebody have to be wanted? As far as I know he didn't have a ride in F1. I wouldn't be surprised if we never hear his name in the F1 paddock

      The NAPCAR 400 at Indy makes the Mindy 500 look exciting in comparison...those cars don't belong on that track.

      If they don't want the job, they really have to give it to Tony if he has a seat on the board and he wants it. He and they own the biggest shares of

      On a slight tangent, I saw pics of the "crowd" for the brickyard. NO way there were 50,000 in attendance. 40,000 maybe but I doubt it. My
