Should be an extremely competitive race this year. Looking forward to a great one.
 
2012-05-27 05:20:45 AM
Dear Indycar,

Please spare me your "tributes" to Dan Wheldon. That race, with those cars, should never have been run on that track. A freshman engineering student could have predicted what was going to happen.
 
2012-05-27 05:49:06 AM
It's so damn hot here, I feel sorry for anyone going to the race. Gonna be brutal.
 
2012-05-27 10:02:05 AM
Wish I could make it to the track, BUT rather than sit in 100+ temperatures, I'll be sitting in the AC at home getting just as drunk.

Hey guys, I don't have a tv antenna... only computers hooked to my TVs. Does anyone know of a site where I can watch the race streaming on the Internet?

Will Helio get his fourth? Will Andretti slow on the backstretch? Will Power?
 
2012-05-27 10:26:43 AM
WILL POWER!
 
2012-05-27 10:27:46 AM
i still remember how nutty last year's finish was. unfreakingbelievable. cat was what, 4 seconds from winning and GAME MOTHERfarkING OVER and Wheldon cruises to the bottle of milk.

RIP Dan.

ESPN3 is streaming the on-board cameras... so you could pick a driver and watch the whole race from his POV.

So, Barichello qualified in tenth. And this is his first 500 mile race. Be awesome to see him do well.

Does anyone know when the race will actually start? Not the pre-race crap. The actual race.

That's pretty damn cool.

Green flag is (apparently) scheduled for 1:11 Eastern.

Threadjack: No Ultimate Race Day thread, huh? I really thought the rain on the last few laps at Monaco were going to make things interesting.

Time for the DW drinking game.

It would get a bit unwieldy after a while. I mean the Indy 500 itself is gonna probably peg 2000 comments.

This is gonna be one hell of a day. 1100 miles of races, and I guarantee there will be some tears when they get to the Dan Wheldon tributes.

What are you gonna do when DW is actually on the air tonight?

Well given that it was Musberger who said it just a few minutes, you're doing it right.

This. Who owns white sunglasses? Why couldn't they just have said ANY sunglasses?

Luckily, I'll be at the bar by the time the NASCAR race starts. No volume = no Waltrip.

problem with F1 and being on the west coast is the timing. It's too late to stay up and watch, too early to wake up and watch. I dragged my carcass out of bed at 7:30 so I could be alive for the 8am start of the pre-race stuff.
 
2012-05-27 11:10:27 AM
What are today's rules for the Fark drinking game? Keeping in mind that we still have 1100 miles of racing to go and I want to see all of them...... I think we have to leave Dan Weldon and Danica out of the list today.

Douchebags own white sunglasses.

Central time works out pretty well. The first races in Australia and eastern Asia aren't on too late. The races in Europe aren't on too early. Well not too too early.

I failed as a race fan this morning -- went for an hour-long snooze and wound up sleeping through the F1 race. Up for this one though, how's everyone doing?

/Looks like Schumi got it all wrong in F1 yet again? Bad luck or driving like an idiot?

with 1100 miles, any drinking games will lead to alcohol poisoning.

Well I do recall a picture of Nigel Mansell wearing white sunglasses...

Bad luck, his transmission started failing.

Bad luck, I think he retired with a mechanical problem. It was a great race for Webber though.

third in the Nationwide race.

I'm glad that they started with good Dan Wheldon memories. But Jesus, it's really dusty in here.
