The 2008 ICS race at Kansas Speedway has lost it's lottery-related sponsor to the N-Word, but in it's place has gained a new sponsor with quite the fetching logo.

Time Warner Cable is the new title sponsor of the IndyCar Series race on April 27, which will be called the RoadRunner Turbo Indy 300. The Kansas Lottery has renewed their sponsorship agreement with Kansas Speedway and will sponsor the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Sept. 27, which will be called the Kansas Lottery 300. After a three year absence, the IndyPro Series will return for the Hard Rock 100.

Feel free to now draw Road Runner and Coyote comparisons to the state of open-wheel racing. I mean, we've got the logo now to support the analogy.

    Well considering CCWS to be Wile Coyote would give CCWS way too much credit, because the coyote would actually come very close to catching the Roadrunner. The Coyote was often times clever too. The only trait that is comparable is persistence (to the point of being stubborn and not knowing when to give up). CCWS would have to be more like a stubborn Elmer Fudd.

    I had to chuckle at an IRL race called the Roadrunner Turbo 300, since the race is an oval and all the IRL engines are normally aspirated. Hmmmmmmm.
