Note – Once again, I’ve turned over the reins of this site over to Paul Dalbey of More Front Wing. Most of the time we agree. However, on today’s topic – we don’t see exactly eye-to-eye. Still, its a good topic worthy of discussion. – GP
Trivia: What do you the Colorado Rockies, Justin Bieber, Y2K, Harry Potter, Facebook, and the careers of every current Verizon IndyCar Series driver have in common?
Answer: Not a single one of them was around when Indy car racing left the pit lane open when a caution period commenced on course.
That’s right — there isn’t a single driver in today’s Verizon IndyCar Series that raced in a time when drivers were allowed to duck into pit lane before the pace car had the field in tow. In fact, there are a good number of today’s drivers who weren’t even born when CART and USAC implemented the rule prior to the 1992 season.
