Note to the gullible: everything below is made up.
multi-year agreement between the Champ Car World Series and ESPN is
really part of a stealth unification scheme, according to multiple
sources within both series.
"The ESPN deal is just the tip of the iceberg," said one IRL insider. "Underneath the water line a bunch of us are working toward merging together one little thing at a time, when no one is looking. We plan to eventually tell (IRL chief) Tony Geroge (left) about it once everything is unified, maybe bring it up during a round of golf. Like, 'Hey, Tony, a bunch of us went ahead and got that unification thing out of the way.' "
