Notice that it is on NBCSN, not on CNBC as originally planned, and your program guide might still have.

I'll be watching, but in and out of the thread. This is one of my favorite races of the year.

There's just about as many people in the stands at TMS as there are in this thread.
 
2014-06-07 07:57:53 PM  
US-Nigeria just wrapped up. Now let's go racing!
 
2014-06-07 07:58:11 PM  
About an hour out from green here at TMS. Not gonna lie .. we had a rough afternoon yesterday but I think we have a reasonable car and should be able to go forward. Hope it's a safe race for all of us, and hope you guys enjoy it!

this race is a distant third for my attention behind the hockey and Yankee games

Thanks!

So the race tonight, it's like when they'd have Empty Arena Matches in wrestling, right? That's why the stands are empty?
 
2014-06-07 08:17:26 PM  
It is the Will Power "Are you entertained?" B-roll.  Fun.
 
2014-06-07 08:17:47 PM  
So tonight Indy in Texas, tomorrow NASCAR in Pennsylvania.

Perhaps Texans get skeered when the cars go real fast and don't have roofs.

F1, but they only have the one race in the US, and a lot of the crowd is just there for the show, not the race.

F1 in Canuckistan...with Nico on the pole again! haha

How much is Bernie the Troll sucking out of tracks these days for the honor of hosting F1?  Is it in excess of $35 mil a race?
 
2014-06-07 08:29:50 PM  

clear_prop: but they only have the one race in the US


Well, there WOULD be two if NJ could get their shiat together.

Between the bribes to Bernie, the various politicians, the various unions and the mob, I don't see NJ ever happening.  There isn't enough money in the world to pay off all those people.

I just saw an article that said Canada just re-upped for 10 years at 190 million.

And of course Bernie is merely the "administrator" of F1, and passes the buck to his lackeys in the FIA when people accuse him of his shiat.

Jesusfreaks in my Indycar?  Thanks Texas.

Saxophone anthem... OK, original, at least.

too much embelishment
 
2014-06-07 08:39:07 PM  
Well, this is certainly a rendition of the national anthem...

at least it was a cool flyover

And the Williams both outqualified Alonso....

Yes, the starting grid for tomorrow is Mercedes, Mercedes, Red Bull, Williams, Williams, Red Bull, Ferrari...

I wish Helio could have kept the Pennzoil Yellow Submarine paint scheme that he had at Indy.  That car looked sharp.

Yeah they are looking good this week (I'm really hoping they have some good finishes, I've always been a bit of a fan). I saw Vergne and Button up there as well. Force India not too far behind. Should be a good race for 3rd and back at least.

That it should. Also funny how fast the talk about trouble at Red Bull disappeared when people noticed how Ferrari is doing.

If anyone ever has a chance to take laps at speed, even as a passenger, I encourage you to do it! I was passenger for a couple at-speed laps at Sears Point a few years back. My god that was a helluva thing!

Well, that was a spectacular way for Marco to start and end his race.
 
2014-06-07 08:52:43 PM  
White smoke, we have a new Indy Pope
 
2014-06-07 08:52:55 PM  
Marco is on fire.

S'mores anyone?

Marco does the action hero "walk away without even looking" thing.
 
2014-06-07 08:53:30 PM  
Marco cooked it good.
