Interesting Q&A from Kansas City

"A lot of the teams that have come in now like the road racing, and they are pushing for road courses, but I don't think that will help the IRL. Road racing has never been that popular in the United States, and I think the IRL should stay true to oval racing."

Hey, AJ -- could it just be that you sucked at road racing unless somebody else set up the car for you and are afraid to have to go back to real racing?

It also seems that he's forgotten the days when Can Am and Trans Am race days had many more fans at the track than a champcar race.

I think he remembers the days when USAC was the only game in town
