Are you looking forward to the race at Indy.

We were talking about the race and come to the conclusion that this is a strickly a money grab. Being as the track is flat the people at the top are trying to force a race on us that is boring as sin but want us to think it is jewel of NASCAR racing. Will be interesting to see how nany empty seats there is this year. I find the race gets started it becomes single file and boring other than "Compitition Yellows".

I think Indy Racing itself is taking a huge beating and the George's are trying to get money by geting NASCAR there

Personally I would love to see a new huge track with huge banking and let these boys show us what they are made of and go all out.

Am I wrong about Indy?

What do like or dislike?

Don't care for the track but a race is a race. All of them have to race on the same track.

Indy is ok...not my fav track, but ok.....looking forward to it, especially since no CUP race last weekend (I need a racing fix LOL).
The thing that would make this an awesome race would be Jr or Truex or Bowyer winning it.

Kodiak...agree with you on the new track, huge banking etc.

Not my fav track for NASCAR, but what are you gonna do? Someone is going to win.

And yes, I think the France family needs some help. I think I heard they are bringing Motorcycle racing there as well.

What I would love is a huge 2 mile soup bowl.
From almost flat at the bottom of the track up almost 45 degress or what ever the cars will take at top.
10 lanes wide and drive like a madman up top or drive slower and less distance at bottom and anywhere inbetween

No worse than Michigan California poconono IMO.

I like it enough. I've noticed that a lot of tracks are excitin one race and can be dull as he// the next time.Always want Carl to win, but ok with Kurt or Jeff Gordan winnin.
Not sure about the "huge track with huge bankin" idea, could just end up a crash fest, like Daytona.

I agree with Kodiak, Indy isn't for Nascar, and it is a money grab for the George's, they ruined Indy racing,now they want help with the $$$$ Nascar can draw, yes with a new track,,bigger and better than Daytona.
