Racing Returns To Phoenix

I live in a suburb of Phoenix, and as you are probably aware 2006 was the first time in memory that IndyCar racing was not held at Phoenix International Raceway.

And now, the Arizona Republic reports tonight the Phoenix city council approved a vote 7-1 on Tuesday to allow Champ Car to hold a downtown event next year.

I don't know if I should laugh or cry.

I remember the three years the U. S. Grand Prix (that was Formula One) was held downtown, and those cars were WAY TOO LOUD. Not to mention the fact that someone thought it was a bright idea to hold the thing in June when it's 120 degrees.

It hasn't been determined when this race will be, and I'm not sure I care.
