What Took You So Long?

Let's hear it for the IRL race at Kentucky on Saturday night. They made some changes to the engines and aerodynamics, and it all came together. Side-by-side, wheel-to-wheel, edge-of-your-seat racing.

Commentators are saying that the IRL should have made the changes earlier this season. Me, I think it should have been done years ago. I remember the seasons of 2002 and 2003. That was the best racing ever. Whatever was right back then slipped away from them, and it took half a decade to fix it.

Is it just a coincidence that Tony George was just recently ousted as head of the IRL? That handed control over to Brian Barnhart, who I have immense respect for. He knows how to run a race. NASCAR could learn a thing or two from him.

Whatever the reasons, the Indy Racing League is back, and I couldn't be happier. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season.
