Fast track for Indy. Didn't they have a tunnel vision issue before here?

yep, but keep in mind those were the old cars.

I'm not interested in racecar driving until they do 500 laps on a figure 8 track.

/waste all that f*ckin' gasoline

Indycars don't run on gasoline.

Losing him? Did you keep the receipt?

He died for your entertainment.

Anyone catch the ARCA race earlier today?
 
2012-06-09 07:57:23 PM
Well, I'm bouncing between 3 threads(IndyCar, Stanley Cup, Celtics/Heat), so forgive me if I mispost.

I remember them having issues here with speed and g-forces. Should be a fast, interesting race.

Was this the track where they did that two-race circus gimmick last season?

Yep

FiendishFellow05: Was this the track where they did that two-race circus gimmick last season?


Yeah, it was.

They are just doing a normal race this year.

Yes.

WhyteRaven74: Anyone catch the ARCA race earlier today?


Missed it; heard it was good. Grand Am was pretty fun, too.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Fast track for Indy. Didn't they have a tunnel vision issue before here?


That was CART. Faster cars. Still, this version of Indycar is a wild card. We'll see.

Jensaarai: Missed it; heard it was good. Grand Am was pretty fun, too.


It started off with a heaping helping of fail, someone put their car into the wall, pretty hard, during the warm up laps before the race even started.

I suspect if they've gotten this far, they aren't having issues. I remember the CART race was cancelled - they couldn't even get through practice; cars were too fast and the G's were too high.

I saw tweets that there was a crash during the warm up laps, so I decided to skip it.
 
2012-06-09 08:14:34 PM
Something something turning left
 
2012-06-09 08:14:42 PM
The Grand-Am race was pretty entertaining too. The GT class was a bit of a slugfest at the end, and the DP class put on a good show too.

That ARCA warm-up crash looked bad. were there SAFER barriers there?
 
2012-06-09 08:16:20 PM

good_2_go: I saw tweets that there was a crash during the warm up laps, so I decided to skip it.


Turned out to be a good race, but yeah there was some fail during the warm up laps.

Goggles_Pisano: The Grand-Am race was pretty entertaining too.


Yep it was.

Goggles_Pisano: were there SAFER barriers there?


I think so. I saw them on the outside wall in other parts of the track.

Going to starting grid, and may not be able to tweet for a bit. I don't care if its a boring race so long as it's a safe race.

thanks for moving to a channel i don't get. good job good effort izod

You don't get NBCSN? If you previously had Versus, that's where it'd be.

Anyone catch Pagenaud in a cowboy hat during Dario's interview?

NASCAR needs a Robin Miller type reporter.

They also could use less commercials and more side-by-side coverage, but it's all wishful thinking.

Can't wait to see how TNT is gonna butcher it the next few weeks

Why is there cricket on my Indy livestream?

/not complaining really

Youve wasted trillions of strands of DNA in an unworkable useless sequence but nobody goes to the retarded troll threads to complain that you are unwatchable.

You never go full DW.

They had *2* winners here last year? That sounds like a mess of fail
 
2012-06-09 08:46:31 PM
What the fark just happened?!?
 
2012-06-09 08:46:33 PM
I guess you could say the race was..... STAGED

YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

It was a completely unfair gimmick. I don't think anyone but Will Power and his hardcore fans liked the result of it.

First guy injured tonight before the engines start

They ran two races, with some inversion/circus shenanigans thing between the two.

So it went about as well as the NASCAR All Star Race then?

He's less popular with people who give away millions of dollars I guess

Do I see the Iowa race starting at 10PM ET? WTF?
 
2012-06-09 08:55:12 PM
Aaaand the hamster's having issues already.

Can't even beat Rubinho's drama-laden Chevy.

Green!

C'mon, Indycar. At least give Simona a new Hamster wheel.

Thanks Captain Obvious! I suppose I did set myself up for that one though.

Think this is about as good a start as Indycar could have hoped for?

/Simona doesn't start, skipped the black flag, I guess.
 
2012-06-09 09:00:36 PM
So long seniorita simona

Not even the highlander of hamsters could survive.

RIP, Lotus.
