And just like that, I look up and it’s been 15 days since I last posted. Shame on me! Being busy is not an excuse, but I have been insanely busy this month. While it’s been a lot of fun, the unfortunate side effect of being so busy is I haven’t had a chance to watch a lot of IndyCar.

Hello again everyone! I thought I’d try something new for today’s race. I’m going to blog my thoughts and reactions as I watch the race. I make no apologies for having drivers who I like and drivers who I don’t like, so don’t expect me to be objective. You’re free to disagree, as long as you remain respectful. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
It’s a glorious time of year! Yes, it’s supposed to snow here in the DC area tomorrow, but who cares?! IndyCars will be on track FOR REAL in less than 4 days!! The excitement began to build last week and it seemed to bust out today with tweets and blog posts and all kinds of detailed analysis. If you’re looking for that, you’re probably in the wrong place.

Hello again! So sorry for the extended quiet period. I fully intended to post something last week after I had time to digest the AWESOME Grand Prix of St. Petersburg but then we had a freak Spring snowstorm, followed by out-of-town guests, a trip up to NJ for Easter, and a sick day. So here I am over a week later, hoping some of those who gave this site its first 41 page views will still be around to read. 🙂
Isn’t is glorious to be able to say that?! I’m following the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg warmup on racecontrol.indycar.com and I can’t stop smiling. It’s going to be a great day and PLEASE let us have only racing to talk about today. I don’t want to know what Beaux Barfield ate for breakfast, or what Mark Miles is listening to on his iPod right now, or which members of the Hulman-George family had a dispute last night. I only want to hear about how strong Simona de Silvestro looks now that she’s driving a Chevy-powered car, or how impressive Tristan Vautier is, or how Andretti Autosport is looking strong again this year.
