by Brian Carroccio
Saturday, a young American with charisma, prodigious bloodlines scored a breakthrough win after years of frustration and heavy criticism in an, frenzied, edge-of-your-seat shootout. He was joined on the podium by another young American with prodigious bloodlines for the first time in their careers. Yet everyone is arguing over what the race should have been, with absolutely zero focus on what it actually was. That more than anything seems to be problem in a nutshell. That and the fact INDYCAR can’t seem to win, even when it does.
