Kinda surprised Cosworth wouldn't be able to enter ICS on their own.

Why does it surprise you. The last time Cosworth was completely independent in Indycar they got blown out by the manufacturers.

New bump day procedure: Only qualify 32 cars, then have the remaining drivers race USAC midgets at IRP to determine the final entrant.

87-91. In 1992 the Ford badging (and money) returned and they were basically instantly competitive. If they entered now it might be the Lotus-Judd MK II.

Respect the power of the wind

If there are 34-36 cars qualifying, they'll have to move Pole Day back to Saturday and Bump Day to Sunday. It wouldn't work the way it has been the last few years.

You need money to win. Manufacturer money. It would be nice if I was wrong but...

It's not a particularly expensive series or complicated engine formula. It may well be that Cosworth still can't afford it, but it's literally the exact opposite situation from the late 80s.

Anyway, McLaren should buy Cosworth.

Problem with any race affiliated group that stops racing for a long period is all the dudes who really want to go racing (and can command racing-level salaries) leave, and brain-drain takes over. I'm not convinced Cosworth could come in and compete right away anymore, their last pro level project I'm aware of is the Nissan LMP1 in 2015.

Cosworth, prove me wrong in 2020 bitches.

I'm, uh, genuinely surprised Cosworth is even still a thing. I was really surprised to see their name on that IndyCar onboard.

Thats Cosworth electronics, previously known as Pi Research. They are one of the biggest players in racing wire harnesses, data aq, all that stuff.

The powertrain side of Cosworth is different.

It's a package deal of 2 stickers for $25 to help my friend Robin Miller cover the mounting medical bills during his fight against bone marrow cancer. Payment goes directly to Robin's bank via PayPal. The more stickers you buy, the more medical invoices we make disappear.

Drawn by the great Roger Warrick, Robin's dear pal and occasional nemesis A.J. Foyt serves up a warmly deceptive smile while pressing the button on an air strike using some of his favorite tools of destruction--a laptop, a hammer, a steak, and a rocket carrying one of his classic criticisms.

"That's for certain sure," another of Super Tex's catch phrases, brings it home.

The 4-inch square sticker is durable which, considering the abuse Miller gives most of his friends and fans, seems fitting.

drat, that sucks, I had no idea about Robin Miller. $25 is unfortunately a drop in the ocean when it comes to leukemia treatment, my dad is easily well north of $600k in medical bills so far with his treatments and hospital stays. Thankfully he has good insurance and hasnít had to pay a dime.

It took 250 grand to cut out my wifeís tumored thyroid. We also have good insurance, so we payed a fraction.

What Iím saying is, seize the means of production.
