Headline foul: only Dixon and Castroneves can still win the championship.

Starting P5 tonight ... I think the car is strong, but it's a long race and anything can happen. Penske looked head and shoulders above everyone else yesterday. We'll see if that holds over 500 miles.

Enjoy the race, everybody.

Tell the guys at NBCSN that; on the 2014 preview show the toher night they mentioned 3 others that were 50-51-52 pts behind Dixon and Castroneves and said they still had a slight chance of doing so.

Of course I trust someone who's out there on the track and knows more than TV heads do.

Speaking of the preview show

- all 3 doubleheaders remain next year
- Long Beach is 2nd race and Barber follows (?)
- Milwaukee will be a night race
- No Sao Paulo (possibly) and Baltimore
- Fontana will be in late August, season will wrap up Labor Day weekend

Thoughts?

They need to add more races.  Do doubleheaders at every road course.  Run two races at every oval (except Indy).  Need to add Road Atlanta, Road America, COTA.  I won't miss Sao Paulo (which probably won't reappear until after the World Cup/Olympics anyway), and despite the surface conditions I do like (and will miss) Baltimore.

If anything...they need to something new and different that isn't just an Indy Road Course race.  I've been saying NASCAR needs to shake up their schedule, but IndyCar needs to do it more than anybody else.

Thank goodness we get further confirmation of Marco Andretti returning to Andretti Autosport next years.

Here's hoping they also solve the mystery of who will drive for Ed Carpenter Racing next year!

I so hope we won't to watch these stupid GoDaddy ads during the races next year.

I told all Indycar drivers to hide from Robin Miller for the sheer humor of it.

Just sing the damn song.  God that sucked.

God damn those douchebags in the pick up are farking annoying. Between that and the national anthem destruction - fark these guys I will find something else to watch!

@JennaFryer 5m
NASCAR fans should not tune in to the IndyCar national anthem.

@JennaFryer
That was pretty bad. And unintentionally bad, I think.

@JennaFryer
Will IndyCar start to trend because of the anthem?

I see Indycar's at least upholding its tradition of hilarious failure in the gridwalk - delaying Helio during introduction, Robin Miller's lonely grid walk, Honda passenger guy is silent (thank God)

PINK GREEN FLAG?! fark that
 
2013-10-19 09:12:33 PM
That 'green' flag looked purple to me...
 
2013-10-19 09:12:45 PM
The pink flag is out!

/what does it mean
 
2013-10-19 09:14:50 PM
Leigh - "Let's ride with Helio."

Wally - "Blah blah blah yak yak yak."
 
2013-10-19 09:16:05 PM
Flat out and four wide?  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the big clusterfark is just a bunch of busted cars.

I don't know who to pick. If they would give @MarioAndretti a pit crew with that two seater I would take him. Legend of IndyCar

Helio is abusing TK's good will.
 
2013-10-19 09:18:31 PM
Yes. Munoz is "subbing" for Viso.

See, Viso is "sick."

It's just a coincidence he hates this track and his sponsorship check bounced. Pay that no mind.

Jensaarai: See, Viso is "sick."


Does that make it Visofficial, then?

Or involved in a corruption scandal back home.

As an FYI, drivers were told in mtg that red flag could be in play at end of the race, as it was last year.

You can tell these guys really are right on the edge.

"Andretti Autosport was notified Thursday evening of E.J. Viso's illness monetary issues by both Viso and his health care providerfinancial advisor," the statement read. "Viso made every attempt to make the trip to Fontana to take the track for his crew and sponsors. E.J.'s illnessVenezuelan money scandal was too great and it was advised by his medicalaccounting team that he remain home to recover. While we are disappointed that he will not be able to join us for the 2013 IndyCar Season finale this weekend, we are more concerned with his healthbank account. We will miss having E.J. around the track with us and wish him a speedy recovery of race winnings."

Helio wants this. I've never seen him drive like this anywhere outside of Indianapolis before.
 
2013-10-19 09:30:19 PM

WhoIsWillo: Helio wants this. I've never seen him drive like this anywhere outside of Indianapolis before.


That and his shiatty weekend sitting in the pits more than racing in Houston could also contribute to that

Bourdais almost surrenders to the wall.

Make sure you don't Helio on pit road, Helio.

I had to throw away my tire gauge earlier this year. It always showed 32 lbs, no matter how little air was in my tires.
 
2013-10-19 09:39:11 PM
Holy shiat, Munoz2.

Chicago 2008 was even more impressive.  He had to win and Dixon had to finish below some spot for Helio to get the championship.  He started last and was passing EVERYWHERE and driving right on the edge the entire race.  He won the race, but Dixon wasn't enough spots down, so he lost the championship.

I guess we know which team found a free tire gauge.
