Thanks to Johnny and The Duke of Live Fast Racing for welcoming both pressdog and your humble host for a post-unification chit-chat podcast. Download all 90-plus minutes(!) of the discussion here, which hopefully you will find up to their usual entertaining and informative standards.

WARNING: There is not a single “who-gives-a-monkeys” to be heard. Pity.

If nothing else this should serve as absolute proof that Bill and I are NOT the same person. Bill’s the heavy breather, and I’m the guy saying “ know...” every other sentence.

    I heard the podcast and it was interesting, but you all seem to have missed one subject...THE CARS! It is called auto-racing or motor-sports for a reason. It's not personality-racing or money-racing. As long it's a spec series it's doomed to be second tier. F1 may be boring sometimes, but it is one car racing another car. If the American open-wheel market isn't capable of supporting a series with at least 3 chassis and 3 engine suppliers, then any series is doomed.

    by that rationale Napcar is doomed. It's a spec chasis (BY CHOICE), and given another season of learning Toyota will be laying waste to the field.

    It's two hours, but well worth it--plus they interview TK and Lil' Bobby.

    This is Cavin and Kevin am 1070 from thursday. It's the podcast.

    In response to "anonymous", driver versus driver is what makes IndyCar the best racing on the planet. What differentiates one car from another is the setup, not the horsepower. You are correct that F1 is boring to watch, and that is exactly why. IndyCar does not want to be F1, and IndyCar does not want to be the N-word. IndyCar is IndyCar, and we love it. Close, tight racing is exciting. During the days when Penske was 2 laps ahead of the field at Indy, that was not as exciting.

    Glad people dug the show. If I may offer a minor defense, one reason we didn't get to the cars was simply because we had more than enough subject matter elsewhere. For another reason, until concrete schedules are set and the series has a certain new "feel" (think oval/road course mix ironed out COMPLETELY) the new car design won't be an issue. Some reports don't have the formula changing until 2011 now, so anything we could have discussed would have been beyond the kind of pure speculation we like to dabble in.
