Danica to NASCAR: An IndyCar Fan's Thoughts
So, to conclude this rambling mess, I want to go back to what it means IndyCar and it's future. Danica notwithstanding, good things are happening. The series finally has a title sponsor, Izod, and they are interested in marketing and activation. Better still, their strategy is based on marketing the speed of the cars and is not based on one driver. There also remains a possibility that next year's car count will increase into the 24-26 range, which is about the sweet spot for non-Indy 500 races. While the problems remain large and the work long and hard, the sky is not falling because Danica is plotting her exit strategy.
So, in the end, good luck Danica (I guess). While your firestorm churns out, I'm going to try and be cautiously optimistic for the future of the Izod IndyCar Series. That, and countdown to May like always.
