I don't mind, but who submitted this one? It was very close to the one I attempted.

Gonna be a little late since it's starting so early. I should be here by 12:30, which is coincidentally the time the NASCAR race is about to start!
 
2013-05-05 09:19:10 AM  
I submitted it when I saw (what I now assume was yours) went red and started to worry we wouldn't get a thread. Threw in a Will Power joke, and there ya go.
 
2013-05-05 09:20:29 AM  
Speaking of threads we might not get, any green 'dega threads yet? Or are we all just assuming that will get rained out?

According to Twitter, NASCAR moved the start time up to 1:07pm ET, so I guess they are trying to race the rain.

There goes all my luck for the day- thread posted before the race starts, and I'm awake. Freaky

Looks like we won't get crazy rain to turn Sao Paulo into its usual mega clusterfark. If they also manage to make it through the chicane of doom clean, I don't think anyone will even know what to do.

That is a big if...

Sao Paulo doesn't need rain to become a big clusterfark. That's what makes it such a great course

All Indycar street races are guaranteed clusterfarks.

An Indycar street race at Sao Paulo is a guaranteed big clusterfark.

All Indycar street races with rain are huge clusterfarks.

Indycar street race at Sao Paulo with rain is the maximum level of clusterfarkiness possible. The mega clusterfark.

Honorable mention: Last year's Belle Isle race, which was a huge clusterfark (street race with rain) with an added "WTF" modifier (the track disintegrating.)

NASCAR thread goes live at 11:45 AM EDT... and hockey thread goes live at 11:30 AM EDT. Thread-hopping could get hectic around here.

Heh, that was awesome. A whole new dimension of cluster.

Anyone else excited for the Indy entry list? Buddy Rice and Townsend Bell are confirmed and Buddy Lazier is close too (according to some people I know at Indy...)

Can you imagine how cranky Kurt will be if he runs both races considering what a ball of joy he is on a normal day...

Leave it to Detroit to fark up something automobile-related. I wonder if the person who certified those road patches as being race-ready got a pink slip.

Wallmendinger, now Busch.

Maybe the flip side of the curse of the 22 is you get to run Indy. Let's keep an eye on Logano.

When is the green flag dropping on this?

ClavellBCMI: When is the green flag dropping on this?


11:40 - they moved green flag back 10 mins from 11:30
 
2013-05-05 11:36:55 AM  
Just here in a minute. They're out on track.
 
2013-05-05 11:40:42 AM  
Aww, they fixed the chicane.
 
2013-05-05 11:43:11 AM  
And EJ almost finds the wall.
 
2013-05-05 11:45:16 AM  
Marco's gonna have no Push to Pass by the end of this one.
 
2013-05-05 11:45:52 AM  
They can fix the chicane, but they can't fix Sao Paulo. The end of the straight might get interesting later on

yep. caution.
 
2013-05-05 11:50:26 AM  
I'm surprised Power didn't stay out for track position.  There will probably be another yellow before the two stop pit window.
 
2013-05-05 11:57:13 AM  
TK!

Kansan drives with one hand this weekend, thus making it harder for him to load his huge brass balls into the car....

Is it just me, or is the camera work today not great?

Vitaly Petrov got an Indycar seat?

It does seem a bit.. off. Some of those shots seem as focused on the freeway traffic jam as the racing.

Which is weird. The footage of RHR's pole lap was downright awesome yesterday.

The cameras and feed for this race is usually done by locals and not the standard IndyCar crew.  NBCSports haven't mentioned it yet this race, but I assume it is the same as past years.

Band TV does it... Rubens Barrichello is actually in the TV booth I believe for them.

Will Power has willpower but will not have power.

2013-05-05 12:09:26 PM  
Power............ out.
 
2013-05-05 12:09:30 PM  
And Will Power is now entertained.

Plenty of power, just on the wrong side of the header..,

RIGHT! Now I remember. Last season we were treated to the Sao Paulo Rubens 300 on the cameras. Heh.

This one time at Sebring, Will Power had to put out his own fire.

Will Power parked by the flags expecting an extinguisher to be there, still had to wait for the truck to arrive.

What's the Portuguese word for "wankers?"

I figured it was you with the Viso joke. Thanks for the backup on that.

Ok, I'm here now!

Power is apparently not entertained again
