"We can't forget where we came from. The league started as an all-oval series. These cars were built to be on ovals. I know some people say these tracks are dangerous. Yes, they are dangerous, but it's much safer than it used to be. A lot of our fans really enjoy this type of racing, and I do, too." - Danica Patrick, speaking beautiful *sniff* words about *sniff*...

Pardon me, I'm overwhelemed and need a moment to compose myself.

    Danica is now sound just like, gasp, Sarah Fisher a couple of years ago when she commented on the IRL's departure from The Vision. Street/road races also place smaller, less buff people at a disadvantage because the IRL cars are power steering-less. Jussayin' Although the all-oval ALMS is wildly popular, you gotta admit. I can't walk through the mall without seeing an ALMS shirt.

    So let me get this straight. A driver thinks their series should feature more of the races their good at. No kidding. I, for example, happen to think a racing series should accomodate overweight guys in their late-twenties, and run on public highways, in Mazda sedans. Oh, wait, that's NASCAR.
