IndyCar Falls From Sky Into Indianapolis Party, No One Injured: It’s not a bird, it’s not a plane – it’s an IndyCar! Dropping from the sky like Dale Coyne drivers was a strangely zebra striped Dallara in downtown Indy on New Year’s. Other than the hideous paint scheme the most surprising aspect of the event/stunt was that it hadn’t been pulled before. Besides, is an IndyCar falling to earth really the image the series wants to portray? We’d prefer James Hinchcliffe dropping in James Bond style on a zip line with his WAG on his arm at midnight. Now THAT’S entertainment!

2015 Arrived At Night: The new year brings more of the same old waiting for IndyCar’s 2015 season. The first race isn’t until March 8 and that’s on a road course in Brazil. There won’t be new aero kits in Brasilia, as IndyCar wisely chose not to debut them at a race in the southern hemisphere televised on NBCSN, which stands for No Body Can See Network. So the inaugural race of the new year will taste like a 2014 leftover that’s been left in the freezer too long. We can only hope Brazil’s debut is not as sour, stale and vomit inducing as Mid-Ohio was.
