Hi, Friends, and Happy Independence Day despite these trying times.
I'm wondering if there's a thread or ping list for things Indycar-related. If not, is there interest? I don't know how to set up a Ping list, though it can't be that difficult, and if there are others who'd like to keep apprised about things Indycar, as well as to cheer along our favourites drivers and teams, I'm willing to spearhead it, with Admins' blessing of course.
We just saw an incredible weekend of racing at Houston's double header and we have another big 500 miler this weekend. It's been a great season so far, so what do you think?
Know of anyone?
It seems to me there is a live thread on nearly every major Indycar race. Lots of fans here. Wish I could remember who the thread-starters are. I suspect you’ll find out soon enough! :)
You’re probably right!
Do you know anyone? I don’t keep track of this stuff, but I found that you posted the Indianapolis 500 thread.
Here is a link to some old Indy threads where you may scan thru and find
a few posters that would interested.
Happy Fourth, Jim!
Went to my first Indy 500 in 1967 and have only missed a few since.
If we don’t get a critical mass here, head over to Trackforum which is pretty much non-political on the racing side.
If you want an Indy ping list, just post a thread and ask if others would like a ping every week for the race.
Keep a copy of the pinglist somewhere you can retrieve it in the event of a computer crash.
Just plain cool. In car of the race at Belle Isle this year. (Race 1)
Good idea. Thanks for the suggestion.
If you click on the older threads at the bottom it will show you some threads for
previous races. Also there is a NASCAR thread each week where you can find a few
I love to talk baseball but nobody wants to post 180 odd threads per year per team. LOL
If there is to be a list, I would like to be on it. I do not miss a race.
I had my World Cup dose today, now it's time for the Tigers. :)
No never was..
I’m semi retired these days ,, use to post both INdy 5oo IRL and NASCAR INdy races mainly.. Spur of the moment IRL wise
Did it more than a few times..
They’re trying to attract F1 to Belle Isle. They started tearing up all the streets immediately after the Indy race this year so it will be a completely new circuit next year.
As to muh regularity, it still exists
Or I’d smell worse than the talking heads of NASCAR
I remember posting a NASCAR stock car cheese carved thread,
Not sure how cheese would hold up to Indy heat!
If ya a
int got ear plugs, cheese’ll do
