I hate this part of the season where they go up against all the noon NFL games pretty much every week.  Tons of night races when it doesn't matter, and now all noon races
 
(Central time, here.)

Chicagoland. Oh, cool.

*yawn*

Do what I do... DVR the race... go to a bar, watch football... come home and watch most of the race on fast forward.
 
Although even that is boring sometimes when it comes to these cookie cutter tracks.

I dunno but if its D-A-M submitting I don't mind the laziness

Hi y'all. Cheers and lets hope for a non-boring race today.

At Chicagoland Speedway, Jay Cutler just made four picks for today's race, and blamed his offensive line for all of them.

We've also entered that time many of us may have the football and racing thread up at the same time, so just as a precaution

I do a variation of that:
I'll watch the race while DVRing it and getting really drunk and reading this thread. Then I'll fast-forward through it on a Tuesday six months from now long after I've forgotten who won.

If something really cool happens (by next year's standards), I'll write some of it to a DVD and free up some disc space.

Yeah, this will happen at least twice today, being the first race against NFL Sunday.

I'm good until 4:00 so I just got this thread up, so I won't have a problem (if they can keep the cautions to a minimum)

Like last season, Chase races get split-screen commercials in 2nd half of races. Called ESPN NonStop.

My first day off in weeks. Beer. Sammiches. Looking for the 18 to spoil it for 2-3 chase guys.

I liked FOX's "if something happens we'll cut back to the race" approach better. Some of us are still working with 26" screens here.

Both of my teams are playing morning games, so I'll be able to watch the later part of the race.

Anybody got a link to stream the race? Firstrow.eu only has one link, which is going to the BAL/CAR game instead.

Hamilton wears TWO earrings?

Is that a Euro thing?

The place that is actually streaming the race usually waits until *right* before green flag time to actually start streaming the race itself.

Anyone have a green flag time for this? Kinda sick of the talking heads already

OK, thanks. My bro just told me the race starts at 2, even though both Racebuddy and FirstRow have it listed as 1. I wish they would separate the pre-race programming from the actual race, so I could figure this stuff out with a hangover.

THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS

I always give it a half hour (for IndyCar, at least), but this hour-long estimate I was not expecting. *turns off till 2:18*

Because the sponsors don't pay the big bucks to run commercials during the pre-race yakfest.

Meanwhile, Raiders just tied the game. 7-7 vs the Dolphins

(niners do't play til tonight, so i'm only going to be watching one game during the race)

Cuz people would just switch channels to something else and not view all those commercials. People don't really care what the heads have to say, and they sure don't carry high ratings like the actual race does.

Hmmm...Jr to the rear. But he has a new engine.

Should I leave him in the lineup or not?

Ravens are tied with Eagles at 7-7 also.

New engine, cookie cutter track, decent drive. He will be in the top 10 today barring unforeseen accidents.

But he might have to come within 200 feet of Juablo to do that, see?

Troubling...

what's weird is, now that it isn't a NASCAR commercial, I don't think I've seen that damn root girl at all on my TV. I've only seen Black Napoleon Dynamite once or twice.
