Today marks the State of INDYCAR meeting, taking place at Hilbert Circle Theater in downtown Indianapolis at 5:30pm this afternoon. I should be there around 3 or 3:30pm--I'm hoping to get some interviews done beforehand. Liveblogging will depend on internet connection at the theater, but at the least, expect some later updates/analysis both here and on the Twitter account.
Although there's no set agenda out there yet for this gathering, expect to of course hear more about the return of the Milwaukee Mile, as well as possibly more about Baltimore (although that's not 100% settled yet. Additionally, I think there's a good chance we'll hear on expanded Mazda Road to Indy coverage for this year (along with expectation in regards to the NBC Sports Network), and expect some items in regards to INDYCAR media expansion as well.
On the competition side of things, I think the engine deadlines will be discussed, and some of the key philosophy changes for the new rulebook as well. With any luck, there will be a surprise or two in the proceedings to boot.
All in all, it should be a great afternoon/evening, and if you happen to be in attendance and see me bumming around in my IndyCar Advocate shirt, make sure to say hello. We should have plenty to discuss this evening and through the week!
