Hi all, I used to be on here on the NASCAR Forums as one of the poster decrying the decline of the sport with planned cautions etc. True to my word, I gave up on NASCAR but have been watching IndyCar this year and find it to be refreshingly "real" racing. After following all season, I'm going to Road America next weekend, and pretty excited about it. I like to learn more about the history of sports I follow. Are there any good books about the history of open wheel racing in the US that are worth a read? Also, what are perceptions of Rossi? I'm trying to figure out which driver to be a "fan" of and I've enjoyed his intensity throughout the season.
