If I were a betting man I'd put my money on Racing. It does actually fit pretty well and isn't lame. Racing Indianapolis or Racing Indy as they will be known. That seems to be the popular choice as the supporters group is named the Brickyard Battalion.

Sounds like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has a problem with "Racing".

Quote:
James….and anyone else desiring Racing Indy or variations of it….please note that we received a message from the IMS this week letting us know they would need to protect their IP rights if the team pursued that name.

Unless the "IMS" being refered to there is your site BQ. If so, quit being a dick and let Indy have the name.

Hmmm. smile Yes, copywrite infringement. Hadn't thought of that. We are just plain running out of good names because everyone freaking owns something that is close to some name and threaten a law suit.

Copyright... well, in this case, trademark.

It's a bit of a stretch, but I imagine they have the legal power to cost the owners of the new team far too much money and trouble to be worth it.

How about Hooisers! I actually like "Racing Indy." I just hope they have a buckeyball on their shield.

Who cares what they name the club? We're just going to call it Indy for the Short Round tifos.

Indy already has 1000 reserved season tickets. If it wasn't already obvious, Peter Wilt is a friggin' pro. Missed their press conference, but lots of MLS people said they were jealous of it and their party was spectacular. Wall to wall.
And they're going to start work on their stadium ASAP.
