Kurt Busch’s attempted the NASCAR Indy Double because he’s a Racer

Seriously, it is that simple, that is what the man said. When asked why he was compelled to do the Double, Kurt Busch replied, “I’m a racer.” I’m sold, you’re a racer, but the Double is different territory.

While most of America was getting ready for a Sunday barbecue, Kurt Busch was in an Indy Car at the Indianapolis Speedway for 500 miles of racing as a rookie in the Indianapolis 500. That was to be the start of his day.

IndyCar could learn something from NASCAR a.k.a Don’t finish the race under yellow!

Yesterday,¬†The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500 ended under caution. I repeat, it ended¬†under a yellow flag! Thus race winner Tony Kanaan followed the pace car for the final two laps to take the checkered flag. This is legal as it follows the current IndyCar rules, it’s just not good for the sport. Hello, is any one there? This is racing isn’t it?
