Indy Car Political B.S.

Post by RealRacer4 on Tue May 29, 2012 11:43 pm

There's been a lot of talk on what's been going on for the past few hours or so:

@RBIndyCar (Randy Bernard): it is true that an owner is calling others trying to get me fired. I have had several owners confirm this. disappointing

@JennaFryer: My count: 3 owners, 1 former CEO, 2 team managers and a former champion. Goodnight.

@JennaFryer: FWIW, it ain't Roger Penske. He re-confirmed his support of @RBINDYCAR and ended the silent treatment with a Friday peace treaty.

Apparently, Chevy team owners started this whole rumor up that they intend on getting Randy Bernard fired. I really hope all of this isn't true.

This. Is. Infuriating. Evil or Very Mad

Chevy team owners are now my favorites.

Wasn't Bernard the idiot who decided that it was fine to try and run a race in a light rain at New Hampshire?

If so, that's politics I can live with

Yay lovely politics. I legitimately wish this leads to nothing of importance but odds are it won't. -_-

They're having a pretty good season, No need to buzzkill it with silly politics.

That was Brian Barnhart. Randy Bernard is the guy who said it was a good idea to put more cars than they run in the Indy 500 on a track one mile shorter than Indy for promotional reasons. He's also the guy who, in a single interview, said he wanted a 40+ car entry list for Indy this year, then, in the same interview, said only 34 cars will get an engine.

I have a few hunches on two of the guys who want Bernard fired. Panther Racing owner Barnes and Michael Andretti.

What people need to realize is that Randy has done a lot more for Indy Car in 3 years than Tony George has done in 15 years. It's pretty selfish what the Chevy team owners are trying to do, IMO.

Oh yeah. I forgot to add why this is taking place. Someone asked Jenna Fryer what the reasons were people were trying to get Bernard fired and this was her response:

@JennaFryer: @tonytellez Turbo, fines, not getting their way, not liking Beaux, not liking Will Phillips, sponsorship difficulties.

So in other words, he still is an idiot, I was just thinking of the wrong one.

As I said, if so, that's politics I can live with

Doesn't matter whether he's helped Indy Car or not, he was responsible for the death of Wheldon. He got what he wished-"carnage" and incorporated danger into the sport.
