Hello open-wheel types and thanks for all your questions. I intend to answer your questions every week during the season, so just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t feel left out if I didn’t directly respond. I appreciate your interest and passion.
Q: It was great seeing Charlie Kimball get the win at Mid-Ohio. I have been waiting all season for the “we need to save fuel” strategy to blow up in someone’s face. I get so sick and tired of hearing the phrase “save fuel.” The races should be a sprint with the drivers pushing the entire way, not a clinic on fuel conservation. If we wanted to watch clinics on fuel conservation we would watch people roll on down the road in Hybrid cars. Bravo to Charlie for pushing the car. I do have some gripes to add though, can we get rid of these big gaps between races in 2014 or can we have more races in 2014? Can we get MIS back on the schedule in May, June, July, August, or September? Invite the Brewers guild, and Michigan car clubs the people will come in droves.
