This weekend’s stop on the IZOD IndyCar Series circuit in Iowa is jammed packed with action.For the first time in Indy Racing League history all 4 series, leagues will be competing on the same weekend in the same city on the same oval…The IZOD IndyCar Series, Firestone Indy Lights Series, Star Mazda Championship and the USF2000 Series.This completes the progression for up and coming drivers who are aspiring to be IZOD IndyCar Series drivers.
I’ve been to Iowa, many a times in my day…but that is a different topic.I’ve only been to Iowa Speedway once, in 2009 and I was impressed.I personally think its cool to see IndyCars on short ovals, and Iowa Speedway is short.I have a certain appreciation for people like Tomas Scheckter and Tony Kanaan who seem to be able to pass anyone at anywhere on restarts especially on tracks as tight as Iowa.
Brian Herta and Daniel Herrington Grill their Meat (2009)
But there is another reason that Iowa is so cool.I wish I could name the restaurant but I can’t.More important than the name is the style!Last year I ventured over to this unnamed restaurant with a few co-workers from IMS Productions and the IRL.We walked in the doors and behind the hostess was a large meat locker.That’s right a MEAT LOCKER.I immediately started to drool.
Then I looked around and saw 2 enormous grills.Yep, I got to grill my own dinner.Not only did I get to hand pick my meat out of a locker, but I got to grill it along side a freshly garlic buttered slice of texas toast.
So this weekend, I am watching from Indy.I’ll be on Race Control and I’ll also switch over to Star Mazda and USF2000.com for LIVE streaming of their events on Saturday evening.
If you are in Iowa, seek out the place where you can grill your own meat.Its fun and tasty!
For most avid IndyCar.com users…you’ll understand what I am talking about.Besides not having audio during the morning sessions of the day, both streaming and timing and scoring went really well.This was a breath of fresh air for all of us.
