I got a bit confused when I saw on Twitter this morning that pretty much everyone will be starting the race on the Firestone "green" tires. didn't realize they were trying a new sustainable alternative tire for the first time at this race. if nothing else - it should make the opening lap clownshoes just that much more pure IndyCar...

as a reminder - after this race is over, the Stadium Super Trucks will run their second race of the weekend. they show the races live on their YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/c/StadiumSUPERTrucks). I was never a Robby Gordon fan, but he created possibly one of the craziest and best racing series on the planet. the races are pretty short - yesterday's was 9 laps, but it's worth the watch if you haven't watched one of these

Music City GP Twitter account just replied to my tweet and said TBA for racing. Hopefully sooner than letter.

If I've learned anything today, it's that the Indycar/golf crossover audience is basically zero.

So is it rain delay on cnbc ?

We don't need a dry track, we just need the lightning to go away.  If it is just green on the radar, we should be good to go.  Hopefully we will start the pre-race ceremonies soon.

My mom loved watching golf and the only Indycar race she wanted to watch was the Indy 500.  I think that was because they lived in Fishers, IN back in the 90's and they would go with all their friends watch qualifying as a group.  Or maybe she didn't consider the others real racetracks?   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As of now (4:05 pm) it's still ladies golf.

well, the race is still in lightning delay, so not missing much

A few funny interviews too. Scotty Mac's was a giggle.

Women's golf just got a winner so Indy should be switching to NBC soon.
 
2022-08-07 4:12:32 PM  
4:20 EST lightning window ends. Drivers on alerts to go to cars.
 
2022-08-07 4:36:05 PM  
Okay. Let's get moving.
 
2022-08-07 4:43:08 PM  
Why doesn't NBC broadcast Indycar in a higher resolution? IMSA is at least 1080p. Indycar is 720p. And then there are all the commercials and fellating of Colton Herta.
 
2022-08-07 4:52:14 PM  
Holdup. RoGro has a cool vest. Pato said in an interview it wasn't available to him.
 
2022-08-07 4:59:25 PM  
Those wet spots into high speed braking have me sensing clownshoes in our future, lots and lots of clownshoes.
 
2022-08-07 5:06:33 PM  
Wow, that guy looks like every conservative douchebro in existence.

Throw that neck bearded balloon animal out there as an obstacle.
 
2022-08-07 5:07:15 PM  
Good thing we had that competition caution to prevent something dangerous from happening on track.
 
2022-08-07 5:13:43 PM  
The word is not 'tempachure'. Can't they get commentators whgo speak English?
 
2022-08-07 5:13:46 PM  
This is the first time this season they've shown the formation laps, and didn't join from commercial going into turn 1
 
2022-08-07 5:15:33 PM  
No clown shoes on lap 1.
Surprising.
 
2022-08-07 5:16:52 PM  
this isn't Herta's month
 
2022-08-07 5:17:52 PM  

Chimpy McSquirrel: No clown shoes on lap 1.
Surprising.


Perhaps the few minor tweaks they made to the layout toned down the natural 'bees!' level of this race?

...as I say that, Colton gets a clippin'.
 
2022-08-07 5:17:59 PM  
Herta doing what he's done since Indy Lights
 
2022-08-07 5:18:41 PM  
Herta is hosed.
 
2022-08-07 5:19:41 PM  
Herta self pwns. Again.
 
2022-08-07 5:21:11 PM  
Shocking we are still green.  Nashvilles walls hunger for overly aggressive or mistakes of drivers.
 
2022-08-07 5:22:29 PM  
No side by side on peacock. Why even pay for it?
 
2022-08-07 5:24:29 PM  
Just an innocent victim of soycumstace!
 
2022-08-07 5:24:37 PM  
I'm sure that Grosjean laughed seeing Rossi stopped and getting lapped.

Nashville appears to be a damper program race.
