From last year's race

Except last year, it was on Saturday night and was not competing with the awesome NASCAR road race :\

I read those first two words as Cat Power.  And was very very very confused for the five seconds before I saw it said "Sports".  Then even more confused for five more until I read the headline.  And I still don't know what's going on, but no longer do I care, so that's okay.


I'm gonna take that as a sign that I need to make some damn coffee already.

Chances are, they will get about 125 laps done by the time the NASCAR race starts
 
2013-06-23 02:36:52 PM  
... I just realized our choices today are IndyCar on ABC or NASCAR on TNT.

Totally ridiculous that #IndyCar moved from Saturday night to go head-to-head with the #NASCAR race. #RatingsFail

There's nothing that can't be ruined by a roomfull of marketing drones.

Was just gonna post that -- this REALLY sucks

RacingParallelUniverse -- #NASCAR is racing on a road course on the exact same day that #Indycar is racing on a short track oval.

The Indycar guys are hauling ass in the hopes they can catch the NASCAR race.
 
2013-06-23 03:25:46 PM  
So both races had simultaneous commercials and now simultaneous cautions
 
2013-06-23 03:35:03 PM  
That was cool.
 
2013-06-23 03:38:26 PM  
If they're going 3/4 wide at Iowa when the green comes out, Pocono restarts are going to be hilarious.
 
2013-06-23 03:41:34 PM  
I got to watch this for a whole 5 minutes! Real smart Indycar
 
2013-06-23 03:48:10 PM  
Hinch is looking like a champ. If he didn't have to sit in his car the entirety of Barber, he would really be in the thick of things.
 
2013-06-23 03:56:40 PM  
They're almost halfway through this. I'd probably be ok watching this here for the rest
 
2013-06-23 03:57:41 PM  

DanZero: They're almost halfway through this. I'd probably be ok watching this here for the rest


at least you can actually see what's going on unlike the NASCAR race, thanks TNT

You see, TNT is actually testing us. It's like a trivia challenge -- here's the latest situation, guess the reason why we're under yellow!
 
2013-06-23 04:00:00 PM  
I was just about to say the same thing. NASCAR will probably be slightly less than half way by the time this is done.
 
2013-06-23 04:03:19 PM  
I see Indycar teams still haven't gotten their anti-stall working properly.
 
2013-06-23 04:03:22 PM  
another day, another Tagliani shunt
 
2013-06-23 04:07:18 PM  
Nascar on a road course is akin to fat guys squeezed into spandex trying to ice skate.  Alternately gruesome and hilarious.
 
2013-06-23 04:08:05 PM  
I've got NASCAR on DVR. It'll be there when this is over. Blow through commercials and cautions and I'll probably be live over there by the end.

Random Name Generator: another day, another Tagliani shunt


It ain't a race until Tag tags something

Dr_J: Alternately gruesome and hilarious.


And given how many ringers are in the race that just adds to the fun

Indycar, in an attempt to be like NASCAR today, calls a debris caution
 
2013-06-23 04:13:46 PM  

DanZero: Indycar, in an attempt to be like NASCAR today, calls a debris caution


Except there was debris.

THE BIG DIFFERENCE!!!!!!
 
2013-06-23 04:15:31 PM  
That was cool too.
 
2013-06-23 04:15:51 PM  
Will down on Power?
 
2013-06-23 04:18:51 PM  
Meesh Beer @whatimthinking

Debris caution. You know what I love? We can actually SHOW our debris. *cough* nascar *cough*

Sato's out -- bad weekend
 
2013-06-23 04:36:01 PM  
So when can we hope for NBC to take over the entire Indycar schedule?  Is it 2018 or can we hope for relief sooner?

Dr_J: So when can we hope for NBC to take over the entire Indycar schedule?  Is it 2018 or can we hope for relief sooner?


I don't think the Indy 500 is ever gonna leave ABC, and as a result they get a few other races. At least after next week we get 3-4 months of nothing but NBC

Green  - yellow - yellow - yellow

Description of the top 4 cars in the Indy race, or the progression of the NASCAR race?

Well I'm watching the rest of this I'm not missing anything over there that TNT's not telling us about anyway
 
2013-06-23 04:41:57 PM  
Ok, so it said Kanaan is gonna have his 3rd podium finished, and he won in 2010. FAIL ABC!!!!

A dominant drive by the Mayor.
 
2013-06-23 04:43:28 PM  
Beauty, eh!
 
2013-06-23 04:46:34 PM  
Damn that race seemed fast. Good win!
 
2013-06-23 04:46:50 PM  
Congrats, Hinch.

Indycar: Get your shiat together. You have heat races 2 years in a row and can't farkin' show them on live TV. You have a well attended race, but kill your ratings by going head to head with NASCAR? FFS, going head to head with Le Mans would've been less stupid.

Still, I'm farkin' excited for Pocono on the 7th (I know... Not something we're used to saying in the NASCAR threads) Should be another slingshot fest like Indy but with much wider straights, and the chance for the different corners to allow a break-away group. And it'll be on a Sunday, while NASCAR hits Daytona that Saturday.

Jensaarai: Still, I'm farkin' excited for Pocono on the 7th (I know... Not something we're used to saying in the NASCAR threads)


Me too. It shouldn't be like the parade we had a few weeks back, and we get the sole race on Sunday.
 
2013-06-23 04:51:03 PM  

Jensaarai: NASCAR will probably be slightly less than half way by the time this is done.


Lap 51 on 110 at the end of the Indycar race. Slightly less than half way.
 
2013-06-23 04:52:14 PM  
TK pulled that off with a broken weight jacker? Damn.

If it weren't for all those crazy cautions, it would be slightly MORE than half way
 
2013-06-23 04:53:36 PM  

Jensaarai: TK pulled that off with a broken weight jacker? Damn.


Yup. Broke it earlier in the race (lap 10?)

I figured the derp would hit the fan and factored that in.

There's been a bit of that, yeah. good call
 
2013-06-23 05:01:51 PM  
Yeah Hinch! Good races by TK and Ryan too. Grahm can suck it.

Just flipped over to NASCAR start. Time to forward through, from the sound of it I'll be caught up soon.
 
2013-06-23 05:05:44 PM  
RHR had the best car and passed the most drivers......just lacked track position and luck with lappers.
 
2013-06-23 07:11:15 PM  

DanZero: From last year's race

Except last year, it was on Saturday night and was not competing with the awesome NASCAR road race :\


I'm just starting the DVR copy to time shift.  Go Sato!
