Well, Yahoo!

So I fire up my Dell Dimension and go to Yahoo! to see what's new in the world of news and what do I see staring me in the face? This pic with the headline "Young guns - Can Danica Patrick and 19-year-old Marco Andretti save Indy racing and compete with NASCAR?"

I don't mean the sports page, I mean right there at www.yahoo.com. I know the pic of Danica! is from last year (probably the same for Andretti 3.0 as well) but it's right there on top of the gazillion hit per day page.

OK, this is written by the same guy who last year asked "Is anything more thrilling than three-wide at Talladega?", but to be front and center with a pic on such a prominent site is very encouraging.

See what a little face time at Daytona will do?

Go ahead and read the whole piece from Bob Margolis yourself. It's not so much that you will learn anything, but you can certainly see how someone who doesn't normally cover IndyCar racing is giving feedback as to what is appealing (shocker - it's the drivers!) and what is not (another shocker - Gene Simmons, Jason Priestly, Elaine Irwin, etc.)

    Well duh! Margolis gets it.

    Possible candidate for united series commisioner!

    Though I'd enjoy Paul Stoddard more.
