Silly subby, Carb Day is when they have a big pasta lunch!

Carb Day, is that the day when the fans load up on carbs so they have enough energy to sit in the stands though the whole race?

If by Carbs you mean beer then yes.

Remember to look for me on TV.  Here I am in last year's race.  On the right.  The one in white.

If you agree to donate to a charity of my choice, I'll give you a secret signal during the race.  I'll tug on my ear or something.

Well, he was driving for Verizon, and that is most definitely digital communication, so there you are.

Isn't *every* day Carb Day in the midwest?

To be fair, they balance it out by eating plenty of meats, which are usually low carb.

Meh, it's not like ye olden days.  Mostly, you'll see a bunch of suburban Chicagoans that graduated from Purdue wearing Cubs hats and playing cornhole.

There is no Snake Pit anymore.  Though, they do still get pretty drunk inside Turn 4 still.  Haven't seen a naked boob there in 20 years.

None.  I want to see them all do well, but can't imagine any of them winning.

Invoking JPM is no way to get me to root for a driver. Now I expect Munoz to take out half the field on turn one.

/still better to finish with 9 than start with 6

Only female driver listed in the odds in Simona, and shes a 100-to-1

ukexpat: Meanwhile at the grown ups' race in Monte Carlo...


And yet Bernie Ecclestone is still a dick.  Indy had an F1 race for several years but please refer to my first point as to why we do not anymore.  The IMS even made major changes to the infield to accommodate the F1 course; including taking out some of the best infield seating (Turn 1 berm).  It was a fun race to watch but I still prefer the 500/IndyCar for open-wheel racing.

ukexpat: Meanwhile at the grown ups' race in Monte Carlo...


Grown-ups?  Please!  I'm a big F1 fan, but the current batch of drivers are a bunch of whiners.  Whining about tires, whining about teammates passing them, whining about other drivers not following them on twitter, etc.  If I were a driver, sure I would prefer to drive in F1 for the prestige and the money.  But if I were to hang out with the drivers, I would much rather have a beer with the Indicar folks.

Seriously, Hildebrand has 12 top 10s in 38 Indycar races & he came within 1 turn of winning (still his only podium). All Simona (only woman with a Chevy this month) needs to do is stay on the lead lap and she'll have a 1 in 10 shot of catching the fuel mileage/rain burst/bizarre Andretti failure lightning in a bottle.

Yes, this, but don't order a "pork tenderloin" - we just call it a "tenderloin" - and eat it with pickles, mustard and onions.  Drink a lot of water with your beer and wear your sunscreen for fark's sake. Have fun. Don't get arrested.

IndyCar drivers are, by and large, a good group of people.

Joe Peanut: Whining about tires,


To be fair, the car designers, engineers and team principles don't like the current tires either. And really they do have a point, the tires so far have been crap.

studleystudstutterson: 1 in 10 shot of catching the fuel mileage/rain burst/bizarre Andretti failure lightning in a bottle.


Yep. And as for bizarre happenings at Indy, there was Danny Sullivan spinning around between turns 1 and 2 the year he won the race. Jacques Villeneuve coming back from being down over a lap. Al Unser Sr winning his fourth Indy 500 in a year he only got a good ride because of another driver being hurt and so on and so forth.

WhoIsWillo: I always love a good parade.


Parades are pretty much done for in F1, and Monaco is a track where stuff just happens.

What sort of blasphemy are you speaking of?  You don't eat a tenderloin sandwich with onions and mustard...pickles and mayonnaise...that's it. :)

Forecast is for 66 degrees and 30% chance of rain.  Ditto on the hydration and sunscreen...and I always recommend bring a hat.

It's good to hear Bob Jenkins back in the booth. I know he's been doing track announcements, too.

Diffey can't hold a candle to Bob, but I understand if he's just not up for traveling races anymore.
