Since you refuse to be in the room if a CART race is on TV what are you going to do if they merge?

IRL is just a crappy watered down version of CART.

My daughter is THRILLED about this merger. She knows I wont watch the crap fest that is the IRL so I now have one less racing series to watch. She likes to complain about the amount of racing on TV

Yeah, about ten years too late. NASCAR will dominate US auto racing, and being that I am not a racing fan, I don't care. As long as they run the 500 (since it brings a lot to the city), I am happy.
