It's shockingly rare that I can say this, but the IRL might be showing some innovative thinking. Though just an idea at this point, Cleveland (my home track) might return in 2010 as... an oval and road event. Wow! If they can logistically do this, I see zero downside here.
Also, an interesting note from TF on the media appearances for 5/18. As "NDFIVEFAN" points out, No Danica. Sure, that'll change during the week, but it's good that "DanicaMania" MIGHT be wearing off. The Series has needed to move beyond just marketing one gimmick for yrs. If they're learning this, well, better late than never.
