This is the first in a series of articles on “Brainstorming”, where different subjects that are problems for the Verizon IndyCar Series are tackled with various ideas and suggestions – no matter how crazy they sound. I will take the first couple of topics, but then various guest-bloggers will air their own concerns and suggestions here. As always, readers are heavily encouraged to enter the discussion with their own ideas in the comment section. – GP
Most regular readers of this site know how much I detest change. But that doesn’t mean that I’m totally against trying something new every now and then. To the delight of some and the dismay of others, I tried something new and different when I started the video segments of One Take Only in the summer of 2011.
Note from George – When I first started this site in 2009, it was not uncommon for a guest blogger to show up here from time to time. Since then, I’m not sure there has been a guest-blogger here for the past five years or so. With all the buzz surrounding the MAVTV 500 this past weekend, I thought now was as good a time as any to allow others to share their opinions.
Those that opted to do yard work Saturday afternoon instead of watching the MAVTV 500 from Fontana probably thought they would be missing a snoozer. I hate to tell you, but you were wrong. That race may have been the most exciting race I’ve seen in years. It was edge-of-your-seat excitement from start to finish. If you found this race boring or not entertaining, then you need to find another sport.
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. In the past week, I’ve been able to clear my head and take a step away from racing. It’s been a good thing and I’m happy to be back at it.
