Sucks it has to be the end, because we all had so much fun in IndyCar threads this year, from Hamster Power to Sato's weekly DNFs and the infamous Double Deuce that even endures a year over its original inception. Hopefully tonight will stand in the tradition of the other great oval races we had so far. Power's not all that spectacular on them, but with a championship on the line, I have a feeling we'll see one hell of a performance out of him and RHR. T-minus roughly 10 hours -- see you then!
 
2012-09-15 07:34:11 PM  
Holy shiat, Power's team is prepared. They've got their whole backup car laying in pieces in the garage, ready to deal with shiat going down.

@NASCARCASM has been there since Friday.

In driver mtg, @BeauxBarfield says "first 5 laps will be the sketchiest. Take care of each other."

good_2_go: @NASCARCASM has been there since Friday.


It's been a good weekend to follow him too -- last night he already made 2 In-N-Out trips like the good East Coast person he is
 
2012-09-15 08:09:16 PM  
Go Danica!

What?

And a ride in the pace car, complaining about how cramped the back seat was and how bumpy the track is.

The retirement of Bob Jenkins is one of the biggest blows to Indycar (and broadcast motorsports) since we lost Benny. Possibly bigger.
 
2012-09-15 08:35:21 PM  
Ergh, rather, Benny was the blow to broadcast motorsports in general.

Wheldon was the blow to Indycar.
 
2012-09-15 08:35:25 PM  
A memorable moment this year -- the Long Beach invocation
 
2012-09-15 08:44:50 PM  
I thought Bob Jenkins retired.
 
2012-09-15 08:45:31 PM  
They're both in the BACK because of engine changes? geez

Dr_J: I thought Bob Jenkins retired.


He is after this race
 
2012-09-15 08:46:19 PM  

Dr_J: I thought Bob Jenkins retired.


He is after this event. He just had to skip Baltimore because his wife's condition (the reason he's retiring in the first place) worsened for a time.
 
2012-09-15 08:46:38 PM  
Boogity !
 
2012-09-15 08:46:39 PM  
I hate to be a naysayer as I think Will Power is due but I fear he is out by lap 100 and RHR wins the title.
 
2012-09-15 08:47:38 PM  
DISH TV has their guy giving the engine command -- can't even be bothered to give me this event in HD.

fark you DISH. fark you in your not-carrying-AMC ass.
 
2012-09-15 08:48:32 PM  
FlexPen malfunction

Dish has taken away a lot of networks in the past, right?
 
2012-09-15 08:49:38 PM  
I think Randy needs to give hard consideration to ending the series on or before Labor Day in future years. It does the series no good to see Fontana with about 15 people in the stands. Steer waaaaaay clear of football.
 
2012-09-15 08:50:42 PM  
And the hamster in the back row -- no speed
 
2012-09-15 08:52:25 PM  
So, at what lap will EJ Viso retire due to pants-shiatting?

What lap will de Silvestra retire due to hamster exhaustion?
 
2012-09-15 08:52:53 PM  
That glare is gonna be a huge issue -- did they not consider this?
 
2012-09-15 08:53:37 PM

Don't forget Sato's DNF somewhere along the line

The glare is ridiculous. Give me a shot of Rubens with his left hand shielding the sun.

And Conway giving up before qualifying.

The camera work is horrible, are hey using replacement cameramen or something?
 
2012-09-15 09:01:33 PM  
Boogity

have I missed anything?
 
2012-09-15 09:01:37 PM  
Drink every time you mishear "MavTV" as "MadTV"
 
2012-09-15 09:02:12 PM  
So does the Rhode Island race mean that Baltimore is done or will there be both races? Anyone got the skinny?
 
2012-09-15 09:03:04 PM  

Jensaarai: Drink every time you mishear "MavTV" as "MadTV"


Well I keep thinking of it as MavericksTV so yeah there's that
 
2012-09-15 09:03:27 PM  
Cool, this feed I'm watching gives us the Sky Sports commentators during the US commercial breaks (sounds like Sky Sports is using the US network feed except during the US commercials)! And, at the rate she's slipping back, the Lotus Hamster may end up getting told to park it (17 laps in and she's already 1 lap down).

Bob Jenkins retirement video. COnway quitting the race before it even started and being replaced. De Silvestro going a lap down.... and... Hamster exhaustion.

What the hell happened with Conway??
 
2012-09-15 09:04:20 PM  
And the hamster went back to the pits. A banner debut year for Lotus
 
2012-09-15 09:05:16 PM  
Simona in the pits. On the fastest lap scroll, she was nearly 20mph off the pace of the leaders, and 6mph slower than the next slowest car.

He still has not recovered from the Indy wreck in 2010 and doesn't want to run big ovals.
 
2012-09-15 09:06:08 PM

Scared of ovals.

Mike Conway has decided he no longer wants to race on IndyCar's ovals.
 
2012-09-15 09:06:42 PM  
ah, ok

thanks

cannot blame the dude

Robin picking Ed carpenter
 
2012-09-15 09:09:27 PM  
Conway's wreck even scared me. Can't really blame the guy. Just hope AJ didn't biatch slap him when he begged off.
 
2012-09-15 09:09:44 PM  
Has the unfortunate Lotus Hamster officially retired from the race yet?
 
2012-09-15 09:11:45 PM  
BE PATIENT SATO! WAIT UNTIL THE LAST LAP TO fark UP!
 
2012-09-15 09:12:46 PM  

ClavellBCMI: Has the unfortunate Lotus Hamster officially retired from the race yet?


16 laps down but not out yet.
 
2012-09-15 09:12:48 PM  
yeah, you can't get much closer than bumping into each other at 200mph
 
2012-09-15 09:12:51 PM  

ClavellBCMI: Has the unfortunate Lotus Hamster officially retired from the race yet?


Moreso, will they even have any program next year? I'm not up to date on those issues
 
2012-09-15 09:13:27 PM  
Shed a tear for Dan Wheldon and Bob Jenkins. I can't believe there is no thursday or saturday night thunder anymore! Got to see salem tonight though...brought back great memories.
 
2012-09-15 09:13:44 PM  
Meanwhile, in Iowa, 4 wide.
 
2012-09-15 09:13:48 PM  

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: yeah, you can't get much closer than bumping into each other at 200mph


And it sounds like that was caused by the glare from the sun (and you can bet the drivers have been biatching about it).
 
2012-09-15 09:13:54 PM  
Jimmie Johnson @JimmieJohnson

I'm watching the #IndyCar race and can't imagine running 200+ in the top lane of turns 1&2

The IDOL compels you!
