The longer the IRL remains afloat the more these drivers will come in and push people like Hornish out - that is why I stated it's better he left when he did.
Furrier power - it's what the IRL fanboys always wanted
Look, I'm basing my opinion on his recent results. He was in the top 5 in St. Petersburg until the grip on his car started to slip. He finished 2nd in Watkins Glen AHEAD
of people like Franchitti, Kanaan, and Andretti. He also managed a top 5 in Sears Point as well. He was running competitively in Mid-Ohio and Detroit only for crashes and problems to sidetrack him. So I'd say he was doing very well on Road courses before jumping ship to NASCAR.
And Hornish didn't get pushed out, he left because he felt he'd accomplish everything he had accomplished in IndyCar. If he was to stay, it was to be dependent on monetary issues.
So please quit bitching about everything that puts IndyCar in a better light cause it makes you look more like an idiot than an actual credible critic.
