(IndyCar)   With a three-wide start and a chance for Tony Kanaan to finish the 2nd event in the Triple Crown, the first race here since 1989 should be one to remember. It's the Pocono INDYCAR 400 (12 PM ET, ABC)   (indycar.com) divider line 233

so will this be more exciting than the NASCAR race at Pocono?
 
2013-07-07 12:02:38 PM
I'm just surprised it's been so long since they raced there. It doesn't seem like it has been that many years.

Yes.
A paraplegic race around the hospital parking lot is more exciting than NASCAR.

The late owner refused to make improvements to the track so IndyCar pulled out. It wasn't until NASCAR threatened to do the same that they repaved and updated the safety walls.

goddamn, Hinch didn't even clear 1/3 of the first lap.

Yep. It's been checkers or wreckers for him every race this season, almost.

Given NASCAR was a night race, wouldn't it be awesome if Smoke had said "Hey, I can drive Sunday!" and shown up?

Dammit. Hinchcliffe in 2013 - the very definition of feast or famine.

I'm mildly disappointed Kurt didn't show up, since he's said he wants to run a few races before tackling the 500. He's fast running out of ovals to do that with if he's serious about it next year.

They apparently told Jeff "no thanks"
 
2013-07-07 12:26:56 PM
So Jeff is at the track, you know that's just cool.
 
2013-07-07 12:28:31 PM
YAY! They completed a full lap at speed!
 
2013-07-07 12:28:38 PM
So, did Hinchcliffe just blow it or did the car break? He's lucky he didn't Smiley that one.

Well to be fair Jeff has never driven an Indy car. Though given his history in Indiana I'm actually a bit surprised he never ran them back when.

Sitting in the grandstands right now. Holy shiat I can't believe I'm watching indy at Pocono!

He was pushed into NASCAR because back in the CART days you were obligated to more or less buy your ride.

I suggest Woody's Country House next to the race track for food and booze.

Heh...I like how I still get forget that the start times are for the Eastern Time zones. WTF? Why did they start three hours early? hahaha

Based on today and his season thus far, I'd like to to congratulate @Hinchtown on winning both #HondaIndy races next weekend.
 
2013-07-07 12:38:53 PM
Looks like the different corners are managing to break up the draft a bit, unlike what we got at Indy. I wouldn't be surprised if they wind up lapping a good chunk of the field.

At least you are on the best coast :)

Not for much longer, moving back east in a few months. And then I'll forget I'm in the Eastern Time zones and end up waking up three hours to early for the race.
 
2013-07-07 12:43:17 PM
So... Hinch is afraid right now?
 
2013-07-07 12:43:40 PM

Why not? I used to fly for a living with claustrophobia and acrophobia. Facing your fears is a huge rush.

random thought --

12 years after the end of WCW, I still can't hear Michael Buffer's call without thinking it should immediately be followed by the nWo entrance music.
 
2013-07-07 12:44:56 PM
It's a shame Hildebrand isn't in this race.

Without a turn 4 to run into, he might have won.
