Is there any chance of this series ever being meaningful on the national stage again?
 
2013-10-05 03:24:12 PM
The start's gonna be fun.
 
2013-10-05 03:28:52 PM
Anyone knows the actual start time?  Looks like the pre-race is going to be extra long, but haven't found the true race start time anywhere.

Start is delayed until they find a large enough emery board to fine tune the bumps.

I have a source that said 3:40 but it looks to be nowhere near that now.

I'm not a fan of the Indy roval, but I have many, MANY reasons for that. I think the road course race will suck for this car.

Wally is having a great weekend!

can't wait until Quicken adds Montoya to the roster. engineered to hit jet dryers.
 
2013-10-05 03:58:19 PM
How does it feel?
We d-d-on't have a-a-anything like this in O-o-klahoma
 
2013-10-05 04:00:29 PM
Will we have another standing fail?

Man, Sarah Fisher has some rotten luck.
 
2013-10-05 04:05:23 PM
That car got a drive-by buzzcut.
 
2013-10-05 04:06:12 PM
no more standing starts i guess
 
2013-10-05 04:06:40 PM
Who was the yellow car that brushed him as well?  It looked like it stopped up the road.

I'm not a fan either, but they are using this to make changes to the track for both Indycar and MotoGP. Someone on /r/indycar of the Reddits made a gif of the changes.

So at least there's that.

I'm willing to reserve judgment until we actually get the cars out there.  The series/IMS is taking an interesting approach by stating this new race is a springboard for the month of May while severely limiting seating to what looks like 40K or so.  Stand E in Turn 1 will be open as will most of the 4th Turn.  They are really pushing the general admission seating on existing and new spectator mounds.

One of the reasons I hate the Indy roval is MotoGP. The USA is being reduced to two MotoGP events and they made the decisions which ones to keep on who could pay the most. COTA has millions of dollars per year of state tax breaks and Indy getting 40 million in guaranteed loans kinda leaves a non-profit track in a cash strapped state out in the cold. I'm really hoping for some good news on the 2015 schedule, because 2014 is not going to be the best year for Seca.

Sorry for the thread jack, but I don't have a way of watching this race.

I gather there was a wreck after a car stalled on the standing start. Also Sato is on the pole. In other news, I just saw four men on horseback go past.

Oh man, that sucks about the reduction.

Do you not have streaming capabilities?

Nothing streaming at work. Can't load any protection into these computers for some damned reason.

It sucks for next year, we have World Superbikes (which was freaking amazing last week), the reunion which is a huge cash cow for us and always fun, Ferrari racing days (a glorified club weekend, but good revenue as there is no sanctioning fee), USCC, should be good and the SCCA Runoffs. There has been some serious talk about Indycar coming here for 2015. And I've heard rumors about NASCAR Trucks. My dream schedule is MotoGP, WSBK, USCC, Indycar, Reunion, Trucks, and hell, Formula E in no particular order.

Trying to follow this race between Fark and Twitter.

I'm told the early indication on Hinchcliffe was a clutch issue. Part electrical/part mechanical.

LOL @ Dixies crew lobbying for a penalty on Power.

Oh. Kannan stopped.

Brakes out on Kanaan's car is the word. He limped back to the pits.

Nice move by Simona. Damn, she's up to 3rd.
 
2013-10-05 04:38:17 PM
And apparently the track is eating tires.
 
2013-10-05 04:38:29 PM
I feel like the rich old white guys in 8 Men Out who "watched" the ball game by having the updates read to them by a butler and moving pieces around a giant game board on the wall. Except for the rich and old part.
 
2013-10-05 04:41:30 PM
quick, someone ask Will Power if his arm itches when the 9 is next to him.
