This weekend, more precisely tomorrow afternoon, the Verizon IndyCar Series resumes its quickening run to the end of the season. Counting tomorrow’s race at Auto Club Speedway at Fontana, California – there are only six races left in the season. That seems odd to say (and type), since it is still June. In past seasons, we would only be approaching the halfway point about now.

It’s amazing what a week away from something can do for your attitude. Even if that something is something you love; too much of a good thing can be exhausting. Such was the case with blogging.

More than ever, it seems that there is such a strong sentiment against a Penske or Ganassi car winning a race in the Verizon IndyCar Series, that some say it is turning people away from the series in general.

When the weather forecast for Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto made it apparent that the race would be another event affected by rain, I wondered what the Verizon IndyCar Series could do to catch a break.

Add to that the fact that last year’s double-header at Toronto had to be run in one day due to heavy rains on Saturday.

The Verizon IndyCar Series heads north of the border to one of my favorite cities – Toronto. I sound like I’m a frequent visitor there. In all honesty, I’ve been there twice in my life – once in 1972 as a teenager, and then twenty years ago in 1995. So I would be less than genuine if I gave the impression that I’m a world traveler.

Last week, there were two separate articles that caught my eye and offered slightly different takes on sort of the same subject – the Honda aero kit.

Random Thoughts On Texas

Apparently, the divide within the Verizon IndyCar Series is much deeper than I thought. Either that or my definition of a good race has veered from that of most IndyCar fans of today. Last week, I was slammed for being negative in my description of the races at Belle Isle and double-headers in general.
