If there’s one thing I’ve learned this year, it’s that IRL fans, perhaps more than in any other motorsport, are extremely loyal. This applies to favorite drivers, teams, tracks and… even sponsors.
Yes, we have been known to make sarcastic comments about the IZOD commercial playing so many times during broadcasts, however I dare you to find a die-hard fan who doesn’t know that “Everything’s gonna be alright.”
This loyal spirit has spawned a new idea from a few of my fellow die-hards, and I love it. The fans are organizing their own movement to show the sponsors who they want to see get a full-time ride and why. So IRL fans, this is your chance! Do your part to get more cars on the grid in 2010.
This particular campaign is aimed at getting Monster Energy to sponsor Canadian favorite Paul Tracy for 2010. If it works, hopefully the trend will continue with other sponsors and drivers.

Here’s hoping you’re enjoying the off-season. I’ve finally been able to stop crying myself to sleep. Less than 20 weeks to Brazil. Fight on.
