Mergers and more

It looks like Champ Car and the IRL are finally sitting down to talk mergers. Both series have struggled apart for too long, and who knows, they might still struggle again as single entity. NASCAR‘s success has turned the battle for sponsorship into an out-and-out war. Can Champ Car/IRL enter the fray and maybe win some ground?

Nissan’s Carlos Ghosn says the automaker will grab new market share the old-fashioned way: with an influx of product. It surely can’t be long before Nissan goes head to head with GM, Ford, Chrysler and soon Toyota in NASCAR’s Nextel Cup.
