Lawd I miss my home track.

it's funny to see all the old Haas F1 drivers with a smile back on their faces. Grosjean looks like he's having the time of his life in IndyCar

Where's PT? Forced vacation?

This is a late parrot: Where's PT? Forced vacation?


he was only in Iowa last night for the SRX race. thought he would make it for the race today but maybe he's just off until SRX is done

Reminder of driver changes:

- Rinus Veekay injured his shoulder in a cycling accident last week and Oliver Askew is in his car this weekend
- With Felix Rosenqvist not cleared to return yet and Askew unavailable, Kevin Magnussen takes the car for his Indycar debut. And he outqualified Johnson.

This popped up in my YouTube feed a few days ago:

Former F1 teammates Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean reunited at the 2021 Detroit Grand Prix

Thanks. I forgot about that race again. Maybe they need more marketing.

we have a FARK thread for the SRX races Saturday night - stop by. the races have been pretty decent so far. they race Eldora next weekend and the way things have been going, I wouldn't be surprised to see Michael Waltrip win

Let's hope some weather rolls in mid race to mess up strategy and add chaos
 
2021-06-20 12:37:15 PM  
Looks like a fairly full house too. I wondered if the new nascar was going to cut down the crowd size.
 
2021-06-20 12:38:21 PM  
I remember enjoying the IROC's, and I really like the concept of different disciplines competing against each other, I will try and remember next Saturday.

Thanks

Were they on on dirt last night?

Green flag
 
2021-06-20 12:47:13 PM  
Green. No clownin'.
 
2021-06-20 12:48:22 PM  
How the hell did they get through lap 1 without crashing?
 
2021-06-20 12:48:43 PM  
Surprisingly clean first lap

Not even any carbon fiber flying around.  No idea how they managed that.

yes - at Knoxville. Tony Stewart won but Michael Waltrip was leading later in the race. Stewart said in victory lane if Waltrip beat him on a dirt track, he'd need weeks of therapy to get over it

Sato's hip check gets him damage and a penalty
 
2021-06-20 12:53:06 PM  
Pagenaud is on a mission.

Does the SR in SRX stand for "Senior"?
 
2021-06-20 1:06:29 PM  
I'm slightly disappointed by the lack of clownshoes
 
2021-06-20 1:07:35 PM  
Newgs has a nice lead.
Pitstops begin...

Probably. It was fun to watch the old guys race though. It reminded me how long it's been since I've been to a dirt track. My local is asphalt.

Johnson just slamming that PTP button like it's a tequila shot in Cancun.

Unless you're a Bill Elliott fan. They really need to give him a new car.

He's used to Chad Knaus giving him an unlimited boost whenever he wants it.
 
2021-06-20 1:16:15 PM  
Everyone's pretty agressive so far. Should get a yellow sooner or later.

caution for Jimmy Johnson. everybody drink...
 
2021-06-20 1:19:11 PM  
Everyone's exiting that corner like there's a curb the whole way down
 
2021-06-20 1:19:30 PM

Depends on how much you want to black out
 
2021-06-20 1:31:08 PM  
Off-road racing is usually frowned upon in Indy cars

PT and TBell aren't kissing Fredo's ass, so it might not be as bad. We did get to keep the "whenever they say 'Ed Jones' you have to say it like Matt Damon from Team America".

Everytime JJ spins?
Every lap Kellett is down?
Every snap steering correction from Ducky?

Every time JJ runs out of PTP before lap 30

I've never seen someone almost crash into a wall EXITIN pit lane.
 
2021-06-20 1:37:18 PM  
I like this strategy
 
2021-06-20 1:37:34 PM  

cameroncrazy1984: I've never seen someone almost crash into a wall EXITIN pit lane.


That is a very skinny pit exit. When NASCAR shows up there, I would expect someone to crash in that spot
 
2021-06-20 1:39:39 PM  
Maaaaaaan, f*ckin Johnson
 
2021-06-20 1:40:35 PM  
JJ is quickly becoming the reincarnation of Milka Duno.
 
2021-06-20 1:40:53 PM  

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: Maaaaaaan, f*ckin Johnson


Jimmy and Ron.
