If Franchitti or Castroneves is the winning driver, do we say he has "Foyted?"
 
2013-05-26 01:05:48 AM  
I have the feeling we are in store for a very exciting race today.
 
2013-05-26 08:26:51 AM  
Kanaan or Andretti would please me muchly. Thank god there will be no Danica farking up the race. Got the brisket on early, plenty of time to wash some animal skins and do a little cave cleaning.

Fire, meat, racing, beer.

What's the weather forecast?

Better than "Mearsed" although "Unsered" isn't bad.  But you gotta go with your first guy.

I might be a bit late getting home for the start, but I'll get back here as soon as I can.

Scattered showers.. nothing organized. should be ok.

The Monaco crashfest was a great start to the day!

Anybody want Starbucks? (what kind of douchebaggy Seattleite have I become?)

This is Larry Foyt's year to finally win it.
 
2013-05-26 10:37:29 AM  
At the track waiting to get in. They've limited the number of entrance gates this year so the lines to get in are incredibly long. Before, we were able to get in the track within ten minutes, but it'll take at least an hour this year. They really need to rethink this plan.

They are "finishing the Boston marathon" there today too, I'm thinkin' they don't want to repeat some of the other details of that day.

Charlie Kimball has been cleared to run Indy 500.
 
2013-05-26 10:48:05 AM  
Cute story on ESPN at the moment about Dario's dad tracking down his first go-kart and rebuilding it.

I still have a WTF moment watching people with the last name "Franchitti" speaking with such stereotypical Scottish accents.

Mark Miles is considering a 2014 #IndyCar schedule that ends Labor Day weekend.
 
2013-05-26 10:50:56 AM  
@nateryan
Mark Miles has workers canvassing Indianapolis Motor Speedway to decide on capital improvements with $90M from the state.

@nateryan
Mark Miles said lights at Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a $20 million project. Would be slog but could be ready by 2014 Brickyard.

@nateryan
But Mark Miles stressed Indianapolis Motor Speedway still is in the planning stages of making any capital improvements.

Yeah.  He's also the only person with the grand slam of Indy-Daytona-Le Mans

The cars are lining up on the starting grid at Indy. Green flag should be at 12:12 ET. Cold sky heavy with clouds, but no rain--yet.

That's too bad, man. It used to be so simple, just chuck a walk behind cooler full of crap and go in general admin. A shame.

I think you hit the nail on the head.

Fun fact: if you kiss the brick finish line, you are given the gift of motormouth.

Guess I have it then.

/Had the chance to kiss the bricks when I did laps of IMS with the Shelby Dodge club back in 1995.

Crap .. Sorry .. That was 92.
 
2013-05-26 11:07:12 AM  
Go, TK!  Drive fast and turn left!

Would also accept Andretti and Oriol Servia.

Here comes the traditional "Will an Andretti win?" story.

Derek Daly.  I'm sure he's a great guy, father, and racer but boy did I hate his term as an announcer.

Plenty of room for Monaco on the rest of the golf course.

Nice. The fact that they can get 9 holes of championship caliber golf course inside that place easily tells you something too.

Aren't there only four inside the track proper?

With all that stuff crammed in there it amazing they still have room for the cars.

Opinions on running the Brickyard 400 at night?  I guess that might be very cool.

No lights at the track...

There were 9 in there until the early 90's.

I just said that because it seems to be a possibility.

Oft-stoic Roger Penske is very excited on the Indy 500 grid. Has nascar champ Brad Keselowski here (and crew chief Paul Wolfe).
 
2013-05-26 11:41:18 AM  
Back from the store , wow 4 women in the race. No Penske or Ganassi on the pole .....

Did that crash porn segment really add anything to the TV coverage?
 
2013-05-26 11:49:21 AM  
Speeds should be fast today. It's pretty cool temp-wise.

Don't they have a race to run? That will be quite the turn around for those guys. Doable but crazy.

Decent enough invocation, as those things go, and I can forgive him asking for help for the Pacers. This is Indiana, after all, basketball is part of religion there.

killershark: Don't they have a race to run? That will be quite the turn around for those guys. Doable but crazy.


People have driven the Indy 500 and Coca Cola 600 on the same day before. As fans they can leave early enough to not have any issues getting to Charlotte for tonight's race.

Better than NASCAR invocations.
