(IndyCar)   With 3 races left to go this season, 4 points separates the top 2 drivers in the standings. This could be a very good race. It's the ABC Supply Wisconsin 250 (3:00PM ET, NBCSN)   (indycar.com) divider line 47

Eleven drivers are still mathematically in championship contention.

I'm sure the TV guys will be all over the story, but Ed Carpenter and Sarah Fisher are merging teams next year.

I won't be around for the race today. Working the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. I'll get some good pictures for future red flag periods.

Let's hope all the drivers stay in their cars no matter what.
 
2014-08-17 02:32:29 PM  
since this race is sponsored by ABC, that means Sato is winning, right?
 
2014-08-17 02:39:28 PM  
There's an Indy car booth here. I hope he has a TV.

I was going to say something like that, or it will be the DNF 250

Hi guys! Hoping for a clean race today. Lots of tire degradation here, so it will be a tough one. Think we have a pretty reasonable race car, in spite of our struggles in qualifying.

Enjoy the show!

I can and do watch most forms of racing.  NASCAR, F1, Indy, Tudor, Drag, Rally, etc.  Maybe some are a little more infrequent, but I enjoy the spectacle and the technology of racing.

Bummer. No NBCSN here.

Have fun, folks...

/good luck, Ed and Huertas

Race is progressing quickly. No clownshoes yet after nearly getting it at the drop of the green on lap one.

TK to the lead? Sorcery.

Damn I remember when there wasn't a single empty seat at Milwaukee for a race.
 
2014-08-17 04:53:31 PM  
It's starting to look like Will Power has finally become a well-rounded, if still crazy Indycar driver.
 
2014-08-17 05:02:09 PM  
Well, that pretty much shuts the door on a realistic championship shot for RHR.
 
2014-08-17 05:05:21 PM  
At least RHR had the problem on the straight giving him time to gather it up and save the car.  Had that happened in the corner he would have pounded the wall hard.

DanZero: mikey15: Will taxicab fans come here when they are done ?

I had a fast cab


Just watched the 2nd half of moto2 in Brno after the taxi cabs.  Then I flipped through like 45 minutes of pre-race coverage.  skipping commercials, I'm up to lap 37.  Go Sato RHR!
 
2014-08-17 05:12:26 PM  
Montoya actually thought ahead? And it worked?

He really is a different driver in Indycar.

Fell asleep around lap 50.  Woke up at 220.  Doesn't seem like I missed much.

Sadly, no.

When the guy who wins says "I LOVE OVALS WHOO"...... yeah.

/that and it isn't NASCAR, where everyone has to love them

The Bestest: GET OUT OF JUABLO'S WAY!


He pretty much killed the awesome battle between Power and Juablo when it was close and they were on fresh tires. I think he was trying to force the issue side by side with another lapped car, rather than wait 10 seconds. Waaay worse than what Hawksworth did in the closing laps when the gap was large, the tires were old, and Juablo couldn't even seem to set up a move.

Good call guys, that was pretty fun!

Hey, what about push-to-pass?  I guess they don't use that on ovals or something.

Finally got to watch the DVR'd race.  Surprisingly clean for the clownshoes series.
