Welcome back IndyCar fans. Hard to believe that we only get 5 months of racing this year, but at least that means less waiting between races. Plus, road action at Indy this year! Let's get those dick moves out of the way, and let's pray for all track drying equipment this year.

Sato on the pole... this will go south quickly. Sadly, my 2 favorite are staring in the last row.

Spins his tires on the start, gets run over, brings out the caution before the green flag even drops.

Howdy, Farkers! About 30 minutes from green here in St. Pete. Working this year with Carlos Huertas at Dale Coyne Racing. May be a long day today, but we just need to learn and move forward into the remainder of the season with some positives.

Enjoy the race and be safe.

For some reason, the only ones I ever manage to watch is this one and the Indy 500. Feels weird watching sports on ABC again.

And the winner had a 17.3 second lead at the end, which means there was no excitement at all concerning who would win.

Allright...Indy is finally here. I'm actually excited about this season.

People have noted that at least Bestwick is head broadcaster this year, so that means *at least* ABC cares somewhat to improve.

I'm not a big fan of Alan, but at least he won't derp hard enough to call a race a lap before it ends.

Huge delay on the audio feed for engine start

Engines are fired, let's see what we've got this year.

ShopHonda Andretti contest as Andretti gets taken out of race.

NICE!
 
2014-03-30 03:24:12 PM  
And the "Hey, I got to ride in an Indy Car with Mario Andretti" car doesn't even get a parade lap in.

The race today was no less uncertain or more of a boring walkover than the last 9 of last year.  The new cars haven't done jack to the racing except to change up the order and make reliability more of an issue.

First year after a major regs change is often like this.  Next year will be close.  Actually, I think second half of this year will be really close between Merc and RBR.

They should make the SAP a Bestwick-only audio version.

Graham Rahal manages to almost Graham Rahal it 4 times in the first half a lap. But hey, it worked.

If he's banging Ashley, he's about to die. John won't stand for him cheating on Britney.

Wait until he finds lapped cars. That is when we will get the lulz.

It is not "strategy" when you pit to change a nose.

SeaBass might need to do a little bit of fuel saving, depending on what his economy. Could be anywhere from 6 laps short to good to go.

Bestwick is already three steps above Marty Reid on commentary.  Now who should ABC get to replace Goodyear?  Besides anyone on NBCSN that is.

Oh look, the Charter car on pit road was down, then it was up, then it was down, then up again for a moment, and finally down before it finally got running.

I'm not monitoring T&S. Has there been less passing compared to last year or is ABC just not showing it as well as NBCSN?

ABC is notorious for not showing the field.
