Ahh....forgot it was May! Woke up this morning, flipped on the Boob Tube, and the first day of qualifying for the Indy 500 is on.
Justin Wilson was the first guy up, and stalled the car twice before he got a little more aggressive with the clutch, and came roaring out with the wheels spinning. I've always been a car-nut and auto racing fan. Mostly "Sports Cars", and I used to compete in the SCCA events back when I lived in the midwest. I used to follow open wheel racing in the U.S., and after the USAC/Indy Car split I mostly followed the USAC "Champ Car" series. it's too bad they split because it did some serious damage to the open wheel series here in the U.S. it's hard enough for most people to keep track of the various types of auto racing here (NASCAR? USAC? Indy Car?, NHRA? DUH!), and TWO open wheel series was just too much, and they both suffered. Now that they've merged again, it'll be interesting to see if they can get their momentum back.
