Bring Us The Head of IndyCar’s Mark Miles

The latest horribly disappointing news out of IndyCar this week nearly made us lose our heads. With the announcement that the series will not race at Fontana in 2016 – the scene of this year’s instant classic 500 miler – we were morbidly reminded of the 1974 Sam Peckinpah revenge fantasy, “Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia.” Sadly we at IRR aren’t in a position at the moment to offer a million dollar bounty for a head – not even in 2015 dollars – although we have got about a million reasons why Miles must go.

So in a parodied way (in case any law enforcement officers happen to be reading) we proclaim, “Bring us the head of IndyCar’s Mark Miles.” We’re demanding his head for the following crimes against IndyCar and its fans, planning to send a few volleys over the net with it since Miles loves tennis so much. In some particular order, here are the top reasons we want Miles’ head delivered on a platter. For FU@%ING up Fontana, one of the top tracks for IndyCar in the country, thank you very much.

For flying aero kit pieces that injure innocent paying fans. For a road course heavy “festival type atmosphere” schedule chock full of hum-drum racing. For a three week, momentum killing gap in the 2015 schedule. For NOLA.

For the ongoing erosion of oval tracks from the schedule. For giving us a race control group and system of penalty enforcement that are unacceptably inconsistent and haphazard, at best. For Brasilia.

For failing to test adequately, leading to flying cars at Indy. For the GP of Indy. For lackadaisical marketing and publicizing of a tremendous product. For Belle Isle. For tolerating such silly owners as Andretti, Ganassi and Coyne. And for having the season finale at Sonoma.

Exactly like Warren Oates in the film, we want that head!
