Made it home and turned on the TV just as the green flag came out.

My headline got redlit after 3 consecutive weeks or so, so I'm happy to see a thread

rickythepenguin: what are teh lap speeds? 215?


In qualifying they were running 225. Of course back 20 years ago they were running in the mid 230's for a lap and hitting top speeds of 240 on the straights

Who was having the fuel light issue?
 
2012-05-27 12:26:00 PM  

catastrophe averted: rickythepenguin: "Fans have been asked to wear white sunglasses in tribute to Wheldon on the Parade Lap, the 26th, and 98th laps, the numbers of his winning cars at Indy."


That's pretty damn cool.

The sunglasses industry is thrilled!


So is Horatio!
 
2012-05-27 12:26:14 PM  
So they've managed to get open-wheel cars that pull huge drafts at over 200mph. This cant end well.

Hinch led the 1st lap, Briscoe has been leading since. No crashes yet.

Side by sides all the way through -- your're damn right ABCESPN

I see that Danica is still in the GoDaddy commercials.

What an Attention Whore.

2012-05-27 12:27:14 PM  
Side by side in the first break. You paying attention, NASCAR?
 
2012-05-27 12:27:37 PM  
Geez, they wasted no time going side-by-side.

and how as the track heats up from from cars and the day getting hotter, what it does to the tires.
 
2012-05-27 12:28:03 PM  
was that Molly Shannon in the expedia commercial? I thought she was dead
 
2012-05-27 12:28:21 PM  
i'm hearing go-daddy sucks

and what is the USA sacrificing? it seems to me that we (nato) are in Afghanistan for China's benefit of glorious rare-earths
 
2012-05-27 12:28:30 PM  
If we can't have Danica in the race, by god we'll have her in commercials. One way or another, we are going to have Danica before tonight.
 
2012-05-27 12:28:31 PM  

rickythepenguin: yeah i saw where qualifying was around 222, 224 but are they doing that on race day?


they're going a bit slower, in the past it was about 10 miles an hour slower, not sure what it is with these cars. If I saw a lap time I could work it out real quick.

lunchinlewis: So they've managed to get open-wheel cars that pull huge drafts at over 200mph. This cant end well.


Indy cars always could draft at 200+, only difference now is the draft is a bit bigger. But it's always been big owing to the fact a lot of the downforce is generated by the under car tunnels, so you don't need the wings to do all the work which means smoother airflow behind the car, which means a bigger draft.

FiendishFellow05: Geez, they wasted no time going side-by-side.


At least we can still see the race.

Side-by-side is the best thing to happen to racing coverage on TV.

So, what do they do? Surely there have to be more sophisticated systems in that car than just a fuel light.

She'll be racing the GoDaddy NASCAR later today.

That they're including Hinch in a commercial at all is actually a good sign.

A caution that didn't happen under commercial?

I'm a NASCAR fan, so I'm not used to this happening!

Whoops. Brian Clauson spins.
 
2012-05-27 12:30:02 PM  
Wow .. That was like ESPN.


Something happened... We have no idea. We'll go look in a minute.
