Simona owes Conway a big sloppy kiss.

I'm finding it hard to believe AJ doesn't still put boots up the crew's butts.

Whoever designed and approved those trophies should get fired. Now the winning drivers will spend the rest of their lives explaining to dinner guests that they never actually won a rodeo event.

What a change from last year. Great job, Simona. You paid your dues.

Yeah Sim! She has one of the best attitudes in all motorsport.

LMAO @ Nationwide. Just flipped over for the last 20 laps, and Kyle just dumped Keselowski.

Earlier Bestwick called this race the Kansas calamity.

@brantjames
It would heighten the drama of these garage dashes greatly if nascar provided the drivers segways or fresh horses.

Are we getting an F1 thread for the 1:30 AM Korean soap opera?

Indy racing should be limited to the Indy 500 only...just have drivers from the professional circuits take part.

MFAWG: Is there any chance of this series ever being meaningful on the national stage again?


Its a easy problem: The cars.

I hate to use a political term (and put into US terms) its race track socialism: Everybody has the same type of car, and the different engines rule it locked down to the point that it doesn't make that much of a difference...

...but the problem is if Indycar tried to open it with the very low amount of TV exposure and the budgets and lack of technology they have, it would kill the sport. They cant out F1, F1. Who cares if the racing is interesting and action packed? Second is second.

My personal gripe Indycar is the fact that you have Ovals and the design compromises it comes with, but I guess thats the way motor racing and its culture developed in the US.

A comment was made recently that its been over 30 years since a US designed and built car has one the Indy 500, the European (Mostly) British manufactures and designers since the late 70's just have wiped the floor. I always wondered if it had anything to do with the decline of the aerospace industry in the UK?

But anyway, as entertainment goes it was pretty cool to watch with a fair bit of action!

Indefinite weather hold in Houston, where the Daytona heat and humidity has been replaced by the Chicago wind and rain.


@JennaFryer
IndyCar qualifying canceled for race 2. Field set by entrant points. Dixon on pole, Helio starting 2nd. (Dixon does not get 1 bonus point)
 
2013-10-06 11:58:56 AM  
@JennaFryer
Scratch that: IndyCar now says Helio is the pole sitter not Dixon.

Will there be a new thread for race 2?

Anyway, starting grid is:
