Coincidence? I Think Not

Back in January, I wrote this, suggesting that the IZOD IndyCar Series adopt a means to recognize the street/road, oval and overall champions of the series.

Now, while I don't expect Will Power's wings to be polka-dotted so that people recognize him as the top street/road racer in the circuit, it is nice to see that (perhaps) someone is reading this blog.

Because, today, the
IZOD IndyCar Series announced that they will do just that and honor the top points-winners on both street/road circuits and ovals.

According to the intrepid Curt Cavin at the Indianapolis Star:

The name on the trophy for ovals -- likely A.J. Foyt -- will be revealed during the June 3-5 event at Texas Motor Speedway. The road course honoree will be named during the July 3-4 event at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International.
The A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti trophies?  Those would be two historic, and fitting names for the series.

  1. We will be abled to vote. You will have to teach me who among Indy car racing's top winners were oval and road/street specialists. I wouldn't give to the best xxx court player the Federer Trophy, who is an all-around specialist.
