Merry Christmas From Oilpressure.com
The year is quickly coming to a close. The 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season is now further away from us than the 2017 season, which is a good thing. This past season gave us a new champion in Simon Pagenaud, but it also showed that the old wily drivers still have plenty of fight left in them.
Next season should be even more interesting, with Josef Newgarden replacing Juan Montoya at Team Penske, with Montoya rejoining the team for the Indianapolis 500; Chip Ganassi Racing switching to Honda and a sort of driver swap between Andretti Autosport and AJ Foyt Enterprises.
If the chill of December is getting to you, just remember this – once the ball drops in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, we will be less than two and a half months away from the start of the drop of the green flag at St. Petersburg. That should warm you up a little.
But we need to get through the holidays before that. With Christmas just a few days away, it’s time for me to push away from the keyboard for a little while and take my traditional Christmas break. Traffic on this site drops dramatically in December anyway and it helps to recharge my batteries for the New Year. It seems like once January hits, racing quickly gets back in everyone’s minds.
So I’ll be taking a couple of weeks away from here. This will be my last post here until Wednesday Jan 4, when I’ll return with more ramblings and incoherent thoughts regarding the Verizon IndyCar Series.
Until then, Susan and I wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas as well as a prosperous and Happy New Year! Thanks to all of you for reading Oilpressure.com over the years, and we look forward to even more fun here next year.
