Should IndyCar try a mid-week prime-time race?
  by Mark J. Cipolloni

IndyCar simply does not have enough hardcore fans like NASCAR that would watch a NASCAR race any day, anytime.

  by Stephen Cox
Once upon a time, entry level stock car divisions at local bullrings across the country were filled with the glorious growl of American V8 engines. They were called “Hobby Stocks,” “Pure Stocks” or “Street Stocks.” A few unimaginative promoters condemned them as “Bombers” or “Thundercars,” as if any fool would want to drive a car so named. But regardless of the title, entry-level stock car fields at local racetracks were stuffed with mid-sized, V8-powered American automobiles throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s.
