This is the Statt Mann  Baby.  Time to Scatt a little bit.

It’s popular to complain about IndyCar.  And, in truth, there are some things to criticize.  The schedule is comical.

How you could have a national championship that disappears for seven months a year is beyond me.  That’s a true problem.  And having a race on the edge of the Mohave Desert in late June is another problem. Less than five thousand fans in one hundred thousand seats proves that.

Personally, I think there’s a problem with the spec cars that all look alike.  Even the colors are similar. You just can’t tell your driver from the driver you’re cheering against.

One good thing about the spec cars is the close racing.  And, thankfully, someone decided that two hour television shows is a noble goal.  There’s no need to have five hundred mile races that drone on for three or four hours every week.

Critics used to complain about foreign born drivers but that’s being taken off the table.  Last night in Iowa the top four finishers and five of the top six were born in the USA.

And one, Ohio-born Graham Rahal, is now second in points for a championship.

IndyCar is becoming a good show and worth watching.
