Man, we're ready for some road racing but we're not quite there yet so we'll take the Iowa Corn Indy 250 with no complaints. We'll have more on the forums, like always so please check it out.
Indycar Iowa Corn Indy 250 thread

This pretty much says it all:

13 June
Le Mans is underway and one Audi is in the barriers already. It's going to be a long 24 hours. Hit the forums to keep on top of all the action.

09 June 09
- So, wasn't Texas fun? Well, most of it anyway but enough of that. This weekend, SPEEDtv is giving us 18 hours of coverage on the tube and the rest of it, they are streaming live online. Can't complain about that, eh? So, we don't know if anybody will have much to say, but we have a thread started on the board and you can find it here:

24 Hours of Lemans thread

Indycars at Texas thread

03 Jun 09
Ok, who is ready for a little under the lights this Saturday night from Texas Motor Speedway for the Bombardier Learjet 550. We are of course and be sure to join us Friday night for qualifying too. At mid-week, we're just getting the ball rolling over on the boards but come on over anyway! Also coming up on Saturday is the Grand-Am Rolex series and the Sahlen's 6 Hours at the Glen. That's a good one and we have a special multipurpose thread going for it too on the boards here.

Weekend wrap - Congrats to Scott Dixon for the win today in Milwaukee. Lot of green flag racing today but not much drama. Hat's off to Tony Kanaan for showing up hurt and having his day end poorly with what looked like an electrical fire? Paul Tracy sure didn't do much to impress today and we don't get the idea he's all the interested in being in a crapwagon at Texas next week? We'll see, eh.

31 May 09
With no qualifying coverage on Versus, Milwaukee has kind of fallen off the radar. Indy burnout maybe? At any rate, we'll be watching the race today on crappy ABC. Hit to forums to talk about it and check back later for more.

26 May 09
Congrats to Helio for winning the Indy 500! Race could have been a bit more exciting but the last stint was riveting, eh? Milwaukee is this week on ABC with no coverage at all on VS. What's up with that crap? We're just getting rolling but we have a thread in progress here:
   Indycar @ Milwaukee

24 May - Two hours to go before the show starts! Be sure to join us on the forums for live action.

19 May
The grid is set and the 500 just a few days away. Don't miss any of the action

16 May
What? MORE qualifying? Man, they really do need to shorten up the month of May. Our attention span isn't that long. Last gang goes for a spot today and the bump day is tomorrow. More info on who still needs to get in over on the fabulous forums! Linky below.

Castroneves on Pole for the 500!
what a terrific job by the sentimental favorite. Too bad PT didn't make the top 11 but it looks like a fine field so far. Great coverage by Versus today too. Kudos.

8 May 09
Fast Friday Happy Hour will be wrapping up shortly and we have seen our first looks and who is fast and who isn't. Time has been short this week keeping with up with things but we finally have a a thread up on the forum. Here's a friendly link:   Indy 500 & the month of May

Indianapolis 500.
May already? We're a day behind getting setup on the boards but if you'd still like to come and say howdy, please do. Check back Wednesday evening and we'll have more info on what DooberVille is doing for the Indy 500

Weekend Wrap
Scott Dixon! Somehow, that's not a big surprise on the first oval of the year at Kansas. Let's just hope he doesn't win everything! See our comments on the homepage about the rain, luckily it worked and we got to see the full race distance. Up next is Indy and the month of May. Look for our expanded coverage starting soon.

25 Apr 09
Catch the qualifying show today on Versus and read more on our forums at the link below. Don't forget that Grand-Am from VIR is running right now.

With only a few days break, our Indycars head to the first oval of the season and the Road Runner Turbo Indy 300. We've got our official thread on the forum up for Kansas. Here's your LINK.

Update! - Great win by Franchitti! Long Beach was a terrific race. Clever strategy and a bit of luck helped AGR put two cars in the top 5. Just one more week to go before we get our first oval at Kansas! Stay tuned to DooberVille for more!

19 Apr 09
Catching ALMS at the moment and standing by for Indycars in just a few hours. W00t!

LONG BEACH! Hang on as Indycar moves to Long Beach on the 19th. We will have our official qual/race thread up on the board and the even schedule posted by Tuesday night. Don't miss it!

5 Apr 09 - Was that Indycar race from St. Petersburg today really really great or what? Great job by Versus too on their initial broadcast and even though Indycar's new Race Control looks cool and has potential, it didn't quite live up to the looks with useable performance. No matter - we saw a terrific race. Probably the most exciting of the weekend and we can't wait for the next round coming up in two weeks. Keep it in the 'Ville for all your news and check out our forums to share your voice.

Screwed by a flakey Internet connection, we couldn't catch qualifying live today but will watching the show on VS.

Back later with more so y'all come back then too, ya hear?

Indy and ALMS from St. Pete is getting closer by the hour and we are set to go. We even added Versus to our cable line up just to get Indycar. Clueless what else VS shows but for a few bucks a month, Indy is good enough. Hit the forum, readers, for more info and the latest chat.

Yesterday's race broke all kind of records but wasn't particularly exciting. A bit of drama in the last half hour with McNish in the lead but the Peugeot's couldn't catch him. We focus next on Indycar's season opener. Stay tuned for our official race thread on the forum.

- The new Acura kicked Audi and Peugeot's ass in qualifying. This should be some good LMP1 action, fer shur. 

18 Mar 09
