Indy v. NASCAR



As I was watching the Indycar race at Texas tonight, I thought of a few things that maybe haven't been brought up in a while.



Look, I fully realize that the Indy/Stock rivalry(ha) has been going on for quite some time... but I was curious if anybody out there had some new takes.

Does anybody else out there tune in somewhat consistently to Indy races? 


I'll be honest.... other than live the local track here, I don't watch much other than Sprint, Nationwide, Truck, and Indy.  No F1/Whelen/ARCA/etc, for me.

What are your thoughts on the current state of Indycar racing?  Perhaps my title was somewhat misleading, because I don't care to put the two organizations against each other, so much as I want to look at the differences in both.

I've enjoyed the Indycar races this year.  I don't always set aside time to sit down and watch them, but I typically do DVR them... and have been rather pleased thus far.

I'd like to get some opinions on what you like/don't like about the Indycar Series... and comparing it to NASCAR would likely make for some interesting chatter. 

The different tires, the push to pass button, and a few other things have attempted to make it a little more competitive as of late. Even Versus' exceptional coverage is appealing to me.  I think it's done rather well. 


Indy certainly doesn't have the appeal to me that stock car racing does, but I don't dislike it.

Any thoughts on the current state of Indy in 2010?

I'd be interested to hear the opinions of other NASCAR fans like me out there.
