CCWS IRL Merger Update

Ok let’s review this merger that everyone is……ah ….. not talking about - yea that’s it we’re not talking about it because it won’t get done if we don’t leave them alone! First we have Auto Week giving us all the details of a combined series based on a fax sent to them by mistake by someone at IMS. Huh – sure and I have some basement property in the everglades for sale!

TG says Kevin who? – when asked about the talks, Kevin says we are just skiing and wine tasting – getting to know each other, leave us alone or it’ll never get done.

Then TG says Ok you've got me, we have talked about getting together and I want this as much as anyone but “there is a lot of hair on this cat” Huh – TG you want what? Could it be you see that KK and company have been able to do what you wanted to years ago but were not able to and now are powerless to make happen?

KK say’s Ok you've got me, we have been exploring ways to unify OWR in this country but absolutely nothing has been resolved. The most important thing is that no one can be a looser in the new organization. Huh – you are willing to give up some of the control of your series, be you KK or TG and loose nothing?

Then there’s this person calling himself Truthie over on the SPEED CHANNEL FORUM. If you haven’t read any of his ramblings yet, get over there and do so. According to Truthie the merger thing is a done deal and he knows so because he is in the “in” and has “inside” information. Many different warblers on the forum have called him on his ramblings but each time he responded with the same information. Information which includes the details of the new series including race locations, chassis, tires etc. Truthie says the BIG announcement will come in May during Indy.

Ok it’s my turn

WickerBill sez;

I don’t care if they merge or not, it their business to run as they see fit. There’s not a thing me any other fan can do about it. The devil is always in the details and in this case the devil has the upper hand. I think this attempt will likely end up in the circular file just as the others have, in spite of what Truthie says.

I still say that the best thing for OWR is for the stronger of the two series to survive (Outlast) the other (merger by deafult). Then bring the deafult new series under the control of a strong leader just as Dan Gurney suggested years ago.
