RACER: Robin Miller's Message to Mark Miles

So Fontana will only be back if it's a September date... And the Pirelli World Challenge was in Elkhart Lake this weekend. Could this be the open date that we needed to get Road America back on the schedule? Let's hope so.

[06/18/13]   Just want to apologize to everybody for the lack of page activity as of the past 8 months or so.. Us 3 admins have been wrapped in a lot of personal matters and we'll do our best to kick this page back into gear and re-focus on the task at hand.

[10/29/12]   Well sadly, Randy Bernard is no longer IndyCar President/CEO after being voted out by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway board of directors yesterday. I'd like to personally thank him for his personal support of this page, and the fantastic job he did for our series as a whole, especially with the atrocious situation he was handed. IndyCar made a huge mistake letting go of such a hard working individual with fresh ideas. I am grateful for the passion he had for reviving our series back to the level it once was, I truly wish he could have had a chance to see it through.. Thank you so much Randy... THANK YOU!

Take care everybody. - John
