Now everyone has and opinion on last Saturdays Suntrust Indy Challenge at Richmond International Raceway alot of bad comments have followed and people are frustrated at how things went down, but the bottom line is it was'nt all that bad.

Indycar racing is exciting but sometimes your suppose to beat the other drivers and that is exactly what Scott Dixon did taking the win after he beat his teammate Dario Franchitti off pit road dario was the polesitter for the race.

Last year everyone was complaining about so many cautions so my theory is you cant please everyone this has happened in almost every racing series ive ever watched. Now there has been a lot of talk about the 2010 schedule and that it will be split with road/street and oval courses first off I don't think that has anything to do with it, the IRL has always had there best races on the ovals, and they seem to be moving away from that but i think a mix is good i just hope they don't drop the Richmond race because it is a well attended race and the only one in the mid Atlantic region.

Now if everyone wants to see some big time passing and excitement why not run the IRL at Daytona or Talladega? talk about some fast wild and crazy racing that would either be the best racing in the world or the worst so why not give it a try?

The points battle has always been good and has came down to the last race and last lap the last two seasons so its not like it isn't exciting so don't just downplay one race for all. It would be nice to see some new suppliers come in so its not like IROC, it was a great series but folded and hopefully this doesn't happen with the IRL.
