This rumor should have been upgraded to 'fact' long ago. The Premier Racing Association was formed using the old Silver Crown cars and is holding races with big fields, though they too are struggling. Meanwhile the France-family ISC funded Speedway Silver Crown Cars are failing miserably and the "split and soon die" strategy for another traditional open wheel series is working as planned. The conspiracy theorists will tell you that the divide and conquer strategy will eventually lead to nothing standing but NASCAR, and NASCAR will
be racing in the USA.
01/05/06 With USAC's push for the new Silver Crown SuperSpeedway car on NASCAR high-banked ovals being shunned by most teams, we hear there is movement afoot by many of the teams to breakaway and start a new dirt track series. Stay tuned as this story develops, but isn't it ironic that the entire open wheel racing industry is in a split- divide and die mode.
