News and Views on Drivers Chasing Open-Wheel Stardom

Thursday Morning Reading

Gordon Kirby wrote an excellent piece yesterday highlighting (a few) of today’s upcoming American open-wheel stars.  His story is entitled “Who’s flying the stars and stripes?“.

The story also looks at the lack of American success in IndyCar this season.

This season marked an all-time low for American participation in the IRL. Just five drivers – Graham Rahal, Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Ed Carpenter – raced Indycars on a regular basis. And for the first time in Indycar’s 100-year history, not a single American won a race.

If that’s not enough reading for you, check this out, apparently Peter Windsor is a pretty big fan of Kyle Busch.  The USA Today article also points out that USF1 plans to release a list of young U.S. prospects before the end of the year.

I can’t wait to see their list.

    Kirby always has great stuff.

    As for Peter Windsor… I guess he wore out his Danica angle, so now he’ll milk Kyle Busch for a while??? Oh boy.
