I am hearing from watching the Speed channel, and various publications out there that the IRL will announcemultiple Chassis options for the teams from the various designs out there. Now the first thing I thought when I heard this is how cool would that be to have many different looking race cars out there? For example, I think it would be awesome to see some Delta wing cars racing the more traditional types of indy cars.
Now one thing that this speculation is doing is generating buzz around the motor sports community. The IRL has clearly struggled to gain fan support in the past decade or so with NASCAR growing in popularity during that period. However, it does seem as if the time is right for the IRL to gain some serious fan support, as NASCAR is losing fans with its chase format, its wishy washy rules, and its growing reputation as the motor sports version of the WWE, if you don't know where the WWE reference is from watch a replay of the Nationwide race from last Saturday.
I am not sure if these rumors are true, but if they are I would say that it would be a fantastic idea to bring some car diversity into the sport.
I am curious what everyone else thinks
