It’s been 12 years since CART trotted out the U.S. 500 as its answer to the Indianapolis 500. You’ll probably recall that the race was run in Michigan on the same day as the real 500. Now that over a decade later there is again a unified open wheel series we can take a look back and laugh at that disasterous first lap. Who are we kidding? We were laughing hysterically at the time.
