(IndyCar)   With no Andretti cars in the top 5, this is quite an unusual situation. What's more unusual will be the first ever F1-style standing start, and this is just the first of 2 races this weekend. It's Day 1 of Honda Indy Toronto (3PM ET, NBCSN)   (indycar.com) divider line 131

Beaux Barfield is not there due to "personal reasons." They've put Brian Barnhart back in race control.

Prepare your Will Power double bird pics.

I'm not going to be home in time for the race today, and I'm gonna miss that standing start. NBCSN doesn't appear to have any sort of an option for replays, they only stream live events. Is there a place that might be able to have a replay up faster than a YouTube user might?

I just felt a great disturbance in the force.

This ought to be a cluster worth watching. Tomorrow, I assume they do a regular rolling start?

Yeah.


Well, they got me to watch today, anyway. We'll see how this goes.

Just as a reminder, the only soundtrack appropriate for this race two years ago? Yakety Sax.

Bourdais starts second. We're screwed.

Sato already stuffed it in the tires during qualifying.

Fun fact: The tire barriers are waterlogged, so they create a nifty splash when you hit them. So unless someone tipped them out or the water's evaporated overnight, the first person to hit them is going to leave a wet spot on the track.

We don't waterlog our tires. That would be a huge pain in the ass. We just let the rain and morning fog drop a little in there every day. Of course, we don't have a hell of a lot of tire barriers.

While we're waiting for this clusterfark to begin, Phil Hughes gave up 4 runs on 3 HRs...to Minnesota.

@jennafryer: Justin Wilson stalled on pit road, restarted and now will start at back of standing start grid.

Are you sure you're talking about Indycar?

looked like a grid position was empty.

Indycar fails to even fail. LMAO.

Matchett is scared because the seat belt wasn't big enough to get around him in the test drive.
 
2013-07-13 03:42:52 PM
F1 would try it again

Toronto has lots of passing. Actually Indy car road courses always have lots of passing.

Random Name Generator: Newgarden needs a Newclutch


Newgarden was set to go off 19th. The blank spot was way up the field. Someone didn't set right (on purpose?)
