In doing a little end of season, pre-season finale reading, I noticed a little anomaly in the stats.
I was under the impression that Long Beach was an IRL points paying race, just as Motegi was a points paying race. Thus the reason why teams/drivers weren’t allowed to run both.
So… here’s my quandry…
why the fuck are none of the transitional drivers credited with participating in that race or given the points? Seem’s like bullshit to me. If this is the case then none of the IndyCar drivers should get credit for Motegi, including Japanica. Fair is fair after all. Barring that, there needs to be an asterisk beside the names off all of all of the drivers that finish just ahead of each transitional driver, as given the points they would have earned in that race, they should finish ahead.
this is my rant for the evening. (too tired to write more at this juncture… brutal week)
