Indy Race Car Fans…start your engines!

The Izod Indy Race Car Series gets underway this weekend in St. Petersburg, Florida.  This first race of the season is a road race, or as my Indy insider likes to call it, a “parade”.  Those of us who love the open wheel racing really prefer the ovals but they are unfortunately, few and far between.  With all of the NASCAR mania, Indy racing has taken a back seat and does not have the fans and support of it’s bigger and more popular racing brother.  But I love the Indy series.  Dario Franchitti is my driver and it will be interesting to see how he fares this season.  He is in the midst of a just announced divorce from his wife of twelve plus years, Ashley Judd (who has been recently spotted supporting her half sister, Wynonna on DWTS) and other than his big win at the Indy 500, a rather lack luster season last year.  He and his chief rival, Will Power, will face off for yet another hotly contested season of this once very popular open wheel racing series.  My Indy insider will be in attendance this weekend so hopefully, I will have some insight to offer after the weekend’s festivities.  The race will air on NBC sports channel this Sunday at 12:00 pm.  It will have a lot of viewing competition with March Madness in full swing and the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational from Orland, FL on for our viewing pleasure.
