IndyCar News Week in Review: Mark Miles’ Flying Circus Edition

Mark Miles Flying Circus

UPDATE: Former N@$C@R owner and University of Missouri (!) alum Jay Frye has been hired to replace ousted Competition CEO Derrick Walker, finally. Walker’s exit was announced months ago after the exquisite race at Fontana. Frye enjoyed Red Bull backing in the ‘Clockwork Orange’ series and already had been working for IndyCar. Of course when you’ve got major problems as a series, it makes perfect sense to hire from within.

Flying Kits And Aero Fits: Renewed testing of the gawd-awful and downright dangerous aero kits will commence at Indianapolis next April, a mere month and a half in advance of the most significant race in history. Presumably this is an attempt to minimize cars flying through the air at the Brickyard as they did last May in a scene reminiscent of IMS’ early days as a US Army Air Corps aerodrome. No one can say Mark Miles and crew don’t learn from history, though it does seem to take repeated bashing over the head with it before finally sinking in.

To Honda According Its Needs: IndyCar recently announced it’s giving Honda special treatment, breaking its own rules and allowing the under performing company to modify its unsightly and dangerous aero kits prior to next season. This is another instance of the series changing the rules midstream to accommodate the Japanese corporation’s failed chassis designs, presumably in order to keep it from again bolting from the series. If this strikes you as blatantly unfair and – what’s worse – socialistic, that’s because it is. Now just imagine this sort of nonsense on a nationwide scale, or simply take a good, honest look around today.

Graham And Courtney, Sitting In A Tree: Ohio racer Graham Rahal is set to wed his longtime fiancée, the gorgeous drag strip racer Courtney Force, on November 21st. We predict it’ll almost certainly be a quickie ceremony. Honeymoon sex tape footage is coming soon, so stay tuned for that fast and furious IRR exclusive. Thanksgiving, indeed!
