I know it's not much but football on here but I just saw this and I'm floored that the Hulman/George family would have never let it go.
Roger Penske is the new owner of both the Indy Racing League AND Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Even if you never watch any form of racing this is big news in the sports world.

If there is one thing that benefits from a dictatorship it's "professional" motorsports.

If you've been a casual fan through the years you may not have paid much attention. But you have noticed how the "racing" has gotten more contrived, gamey, and somewhat predictable.

The minute most professional motorsports have moved from a dictatorship sort of management style to a "democratic" type where the owners/stakeholders have a large say in what goes on, the "kiss of death" has been applied. Too many egos, small penises, G5's to look at the big picture which got them there....being told when to show up, with what equipment and personnel, how long it will last and when to show up at the next one. Do that, and the racing takes care of itself......within reason.:sneaky:

But I'll say it here first, Tim Cindric is the name you should be following. Long after Rodgers gone he'll be the guy.
