May 2016 Indycar IS 100 Years Old and It Shows

Did you know we can say Merry Christmas again? Did you know you couldn't before? I guess some needed to be reassured they couldn't since they seem to not be too aware they could. Ahh...politics.

And that's how bad stuff happens to good things. The politics of it get in the way of reality and distortions happen and everyone starts to believe the fallacies. It is accepted if there is no one there to point out the truth.

Bad things like Indycar racing, a once good thing, become distorted about just how good it once was in the face of how bad it is now.

Think about the politics of it. No one is there to question the establishment. It happened before too. Those in power gave you what they think you need so they can control it for their own gains. Under that control you get less and less and you are told this is best for keeping it going. It's the only way (The Indy Way).

Merry New Year…Happy Christmas! If you are an Indycar race fan you don't have much to expect as you know you're getting less. Not much under the tree. 

Enjoy your 2016 racing regift from 2012. Cost cutting measures you see. But, next year…yeah next year, it'll be great!

A Tribute to Cam Gibbons

The Aussie Race Fan of American Openwheel Racing...would tell you what he liked and what he didn’t in that very special Aussie way.

This forum is dedicated to the memory of Cameron “Smacked” Gibbons. Cam, who went by the forum handle “Smacked” and had the Clash/Joe Strummer album cover avatar was one of the originators of a racing forum named SMACKForum that was opened for business back in 2007.

Cam unfortunately had a life fight with cancer that sadly took him from us late in 2011. Since the original SMACKforum was controlled by Cam there was no way to gain control of the forum site and web addressing.

Early this year, a group of SMACKforum members decided to start up another forum based on some of the same sensibilities that made “Cam’s place” home for many a disgruntled American Open Wheel racing fan. It was only natural that the new forum be named in some way for Cam, so why not make SMACKforum SMACKEDforum to keep both a lineage and a nod to Cam’s nickname of Smacked.

Cam this place is for you! And, we know you would tell all us to go fuck ourselves...some more than others. We miss you!
