Whole lotta shakin' going on in Sonoma.

Nobody seems to care about the quake. Indy Lights starts in a few.

Just finished my "Spa Day" (via DVR), now on to Wine Country.

Hinch and Hunter reay just raced scooters by the Porto potties I'm in line for.

Hi guys!

Was hoping to meet up with crotchgrabber this morning but looks like it's not going to work out. :(

Had a rough day yesterday but we have definitely improved the car overnight, so hopefully we can be competitive and make our way forward today. Tough place to pass, though, so strategy will be important -- if we end up at the front I will have earned my paycheck for this one.

Also, I am now an earthquake survivor (nevar forget, etc.). Staying in Petaluma so we only got a bit of a light shake, but scared the hell out of me for a second -- I woke up and thought I was still on the 12th floor of the Hilton in Milwaukee! Once I got my bearings, no big deal.

Enjoy the race, everyone!

Whatever you did in the pits during the last practice evened out the car a lot. Had it sticking really well from where I sit.

These bicycles better finish up.
Pretty interesting though.

We're built on bedrock, so the shaking and quaking is always kept to a minimum.

Oh is that the USA challenge in Colorado? Forgot to record that.

Just curious,  Who does Ed work for, and what does he do?   I've always wondered, but never asked.
 
2014-08-24 04:01:16 PM  
catastrophic drought, and 40 broken water mains in and around the Napa area.

Dale Conye racing. On Carlos Huertas car. Beyond that, no idea.

Lot of race car drivers received a rude awakening at 3:20, and haven't slept since. Gonna make the race interesting!

This is correct, and about as specific as I'm willing to be. Pretty confident nobody on the team knows a team member posts here but if it ever comes up, it might be a good idea if it's not immediately obvious which one if us it is.

You haven't posted anything specific or disparaging that I have seen that should cause concern one way or another. Doesn't mean the higher ups wouldn't have an issue with it so it is best to be careful to CYA. Generally speaking most organizations don't like unapproved people making public comments.

Didn't feel the earthquake here in SJ, but I'd only gone to sleep about 30mins before it hit and I can sleep through just about anything.
 
2014-08-24 04:31:47 PM  
Should have been using those helmet cams all year.  Marshall Pruett did a great series with Pagenaud that is on youtube.  The street circuits are so much crazier from the helmet cam compared to the roll hoop cam.

2014-08-24 04:40:55 PM  
And we have clownshoes
 
2014-08-24 04:41:02 PM  
well, the clownshoes were put on quickly
 
2014-08-24 04:41:15 PM  
Requisite clownshoes start.
 
2014-08-24 04:41:42 PM  
Aaaaah, getting to the shoes early.
 
2014-08-24 04:41:47 PM  
Theres the caution...didn't think they were going to throw one for a minute
 
2014-08-24 04:41:54 PM  
My shoes just got big and silly.
 
2014-08-24 04:42:11 PM  
It wasn't even a standing start! For some of the best drivers in the world they sure do end up doing stupid things at the start of the race. Don't they know that there are lots of laps to go?
 
2014-08-24 04:42:17 PM  
Boogity clownshoes
 
2014-08-24 04:43:14 PM  
Bets on what clownshoes happen on the restart?
 
2014-08-24 04:46:57 PM  
So we get side-by-side for caution laps, but watch, during the actual racing they'll cut away fully for commercial. Talk about misplaced priorities.

Still way better than ESPNs lack of NASCAR side by sides this year

NBCSN is pretty good about doing side-by-side.  The only commercials that aren't side-by-side are the local spots and station identification spots.

They hear "GREEN GREEN GREEN!" and immediately think they can fit a 5ft wide car into a 2ft wide space at 100+mph.

Helio has not had a good day. From a very rude awakening 11 hours ago to now, I think he would rather go back to bed.

Yeah, but they can't push the Y button and rewind. You'd think that after virtually every race this ear started with clownshoes they would make it a point of emphasis to maybe get away clean so they can finish.
 
2014-08-24 04:57:01 PM  
God help me, I love the Myna Bird commercial.
 
2014-08-24 05:03:25 PM  
So if Power wins this one, is that the Championship, despite there being a race left?

You'd think so, wouldn't you? But it seems something trips in their brains when they hear those words, and they turn stupid for the 15 seconds immediately afterwards and forget the script.

Double points at 500 mile races. Could still be up in the air.

I believe so
 
2014-08-24 05:08:49 PM  
Is it just me, or is Dixon the most undervalued 3-time series champion ever? I mean, he's a multiple (and defending) champion, Indy 500 winner, one of the all-time winningest drivers in the series... And announcers spend most of their time taking about Power and Kanaan.

I get he's not a terribly exciting driver... But seriously. You wouldn't know he's in the race.

Even backmarkers like Andretti and Rahal get more mentions than Dixon.
