IRP under New Ownership




These Pics were sent to me by ‘CARPETS of Indiana – before ICE STORM 2011 occurred... Although I hear that Indianapolis is under another blanket ‘O SNOW... So the above pictures seemed like perfect timing to Mwah.

These were taken at the main entrance to IRP; Yeah, still IRP to many. Notice how the top of the sign still has the O'reilly Raceway park signage. While the "Welcome to Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis" is on the electronic sign board underneath it; and YES, that is snow on the ground on an 18 degree Saturday in Indianapolis...

As for myself – NOT even being remotely associated to Indy, its funny how it’ll always be Indianapolis Raceway Park (IRP) to Mwah – and I’ve never-ever even been there! Although I still seem to think I watched some Craftsman PickemUp Trucks on SPEED beatin ‘N bangin there way ‘round there in some great racin’ on the now dilapidated road course...

But the good news is that the Acting General Manager Wes Collier has been promoted to (permanent) GM status and I believe they’re hoping to restore the road course to full working capacity in the future...
