The early to mid nineties marked the pinnacle of American based open wheel racing. A diverse blend of super speedways, short ovals, street circuits and road courses, including such famous venues as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Grand Prix of Long Beach, showcasing the best drivers from around the globe in spectacular and dazzling race cars to an international audience. Names like Andretti, Mansell, Fittipaldi, Unser, Villeneuve, Sullivan, Rahal and many more helped make the PPG Indy Car World Series the most challenging and competitive racing series the world had to offer.
The formation of the Indy Racing League changed open wheel history forever. As he took the green flag for the inaugural event on January 27, 1996 at Walt Disney World Speedway, little did Buddy Lazier know that a more than decade long war for open wheel supremacy would ensue, dividing the fan base and ravaging the racing landscape.
In February of 2008 after a long and bitter rivalry between the Champ Car World Series and the Indy Racing League, open wheel racing in America was once again united. While many have longed for the return of the best teams and drivers competing under one banner, there are still fans that continue to feud over their preferred style and brand of racing. It is of grave consequence that these fans continue the rivalry. It is a united fan base that will return this sport to the global popularity that once existed.
