Lets see if Dixon can go 3 for 3.

Still too early for fans.

Way too early. Really stupid to have fans there.

That's why I'm not there. I'd kill for a doubleheader during non plague times.

Hey "start your engines" guy; fans won't be back for long. Talk about tone deaf AF.

What's that hose on their helmets for?
 
2020-07-11 5:15:15 PM  
I am not opposed to fans at a road course in theory.  People look way too close and it doesn't look like they limited the entry to the facility all that much. It is outdoors though which seems to minimize the chances to spread.  I hope things go ok, but it doesn't look promising.

Princip's Sandwich: What's that hose on their helmets for?


Trying to keep them cool.  The new aeroscreen means no airflow in the cockit.

Airflow through the helmet

I gotta say, them shrieking "That's a rookie!!!1!" is getting really, really old. Especially when they do it for drivers with 5+ years of top-level experience.

I firmly believe this is because he hasn't bottled it at Indy yet this year. Clownshoes potential energy. It won't let up until his car croaks at Indy again.
 
2020-07-11 5:23:17 PM  
With the sign repairs, I don't know why you wouldn't take the opportunity to change tires there.  Your strategy is already up in smoke, might as well get both compounds out of the way and hope the cautions maybe bring you back into contention.

As a fan, hell yes. I think some team owners are probably hoping otherwise.  That can get real expensive and there is a race tomorrow.

If they can't have fans in August, they'll move the 500 to the reserved date in October (currently a IMS road course race). Penske's said as much.

Rahal's car went on a hunger strike while he was pitting, so he lost about 20 seconds.

My buddy got the letter that said we will get the August tickets. if that doesn't happen  I won't be able to make the October race. I'm not really sure I want to go to the August race. But once school starts, all bets are off.

America's closed. Moose out front should of told ya.

I'll also say that there is plenty of room to safely accommodate a crowd at RA. Too bad the people attending are utter farkflaps and not even trying to keep their distance.

This could have been done well, there is enough room to handle a fair number of people safely.  The brief glimpses we see on TV seem to show it isn't being done.  And we aren't seeing the typically more crowded zones with concessions and bathrooms.  I hope it is better than it appears.

He has that youthful confidence and bravery that is very refreshing.  He has taken risks but made them work.  Hopefully he keeps it up as we need exciting drivers coming into the sport.

I am sure they are putting out some feelers right now.  Maybe the team has a relationship with some Indy Light drivers who are available or could also look to the IMSA series.  I know Daly will want to go, but you have to be prepared.
