Forecast looks ok although with the heat and humidity there is always a chance of a pop up thunderstorm.  It won't matter much for the grand prix given the have rain tires but it could factor in for the NASCAR events (as it always seems to be since racing started back up).

Weren't they considering cancelling the contest this year?

Also it's high time that one of those things ends up in a barf-o-rama.

Today at Indy, you have the Indycars, you have the Xfinity race and then tomorrow early the F1 race at Austria so it is 3 races in 24ish hours followed by the Brickyard 400 Sunday afternoon

I just assumed it had been cancelled but checked last night and it is on for noon, with the eating potion itself at 1220. Yeah, I have no idea how those people not only eat that much but don't barf it right back up.

If I ever came to power, I'd ban competitive eating. We got people out of work, lining up for hours at food banks and people are celebrating these useless gluttons? Fark'em.

they should race the indycars and the cup cars at the same time. could you imagine the clownshoes in that race?

/just think about Stenhouse and Sato on the track at the same time

I think a singularity of clownshoes could be reached that would trigger a black hole to consume the earth.
 
2020-07-04 12:11:39 PM  
Wow, a cleanish 1st lap.  Unexpected.

has that ever happened in the GP of Indy? always seemed like lap 1 has been a mess

I actually looked it up. every GP has had a caution on lap 1 except in 2017 (race had zero cautions and won by Will Power)

Mrs HWSNBNed is the source. I'm  guessing they weren't social distancing
 
2020-07-04 12:25:27 PM  
Well it is nice to see the differing strategies.  Lets see how it works out and how the cautions (if any) play out.
 
2020-07-04 12:36:11 PM  
The NBC commercial breaks are quite aggressive

Need to get those commercials in since the race didn't have it's usual opening yellows.
 
2020-07-04 12:40:17 PM  
Go Conor!
(said nowhere near a TV so hopefully he's still on track)
 
2020-07-04 12:40:55 PM  
Damn, working
Well, gotta feed the damn kids, keep up the commentary so I can check in from time to time
 
2020-07-04 12:44:59 PM  
Given the time on pit row, I think the 2 stop strategy is superior.  However, it relies on things staying green and in Indycar, that is not a good bet.

It also requires a bit of clownshoes, which is severely lacking at the moment.

Ask and you shall receive.

Askew is... askew
 
2020-07-04 12:54:36 PM  
Lap 36 so the caution isn't well placed for either strategy.  Ouch bad tail whip, over corrected.
 
2020-07-04 12:55:18 PM  
Dammit! Overslept. Onto the DVR...
 
2020-07-04 12:55:25 PM  
He didn't do anything wrong, well, besides losing it and putting the car in the wall.
 
2020-07-04 12:55:30 PM  
curious to see if teams will change strategy - especially Rahal
 
2020-07-04 12:56:36 PM  
Oliver's wing seems somewhat Askew
 
2020-07-04 12:58:06 PM  
Well this will bunch the field and make a turn 1 clownshoes incident far more likely.
 
2020-07-04 12:59:21 PM  

Daedalus27: Wow, a cleanish 1st lap.  Unexpected.


It's so hot that the tires are adhered to the tarmac and no one can spin out.

goddammit i should've refreshed
 
2020-07-04 1:03:35 PM  
Huh. No clownshoes at the start. Second year in a row?
 
2020-07-04 1:03:56 PM  
That was an odd restart. A third of the field well ahead of everyone else.
 
2020-07-04 1:04:13 PM  
Good run by Connor Daly so far.  Nice to see him doing well especially since he has the difficulty of jumping between teams depending on the track.
 
2020-07-04 1:05:51 PM  
The really need to ban ads that use yellow as their color from being shown on the ticker.
 
2020-07-04 1:06:08 PM  
Well that explains the weird restart: Rossi couldn't go and caused the split.

clear_prop: The really need to ban ads that use yellow as their color from being shown on the ticker.


Yea, between the Liberty Mutual yellow banner at the bottom and the Gainbridge yellow logo at the top, it catches the eye and makes you think there is a problem.
 
2020-07-04 1:18:15 PM  
I don't know if I like all this talk about a "lethal combination"

Power failure

That made contact tracing easy.

Lets see if a late caution can throw some chaos into the end of the race.
 
2020-07-04 1:40:49 PM  
Power pinched Veach.

that sounds kind of dirty
 
2020-07-04 1:42:20 PM  
my mistake. it wasn't  Power
