mikaloyd: 2 hours?
Jensaarai: So now that China is off the schedule, where do you guys think they should race to fill the slot?Rumor has Michigan, Pocono, Watkins Glen, Road America, and Laguna Seca as different possibilities./unless they've already made a decision

That aid, I'd prefer an oval, just because we have plenty of road courses already.
Ed_Severson: Ha! It's IndyCar ... Decision paralysis is what they do best. It will take weeks to make a decision, and when it happens it will be the result of throwing a dart at a dartboard.

clear_prop: Speculation earlier in the week was Texas, and than rumors of Michigan the last few days. An oval is probably easier to schedule on short notice.
Outtaphase: IMS flat out said no early on, and Michigan is out because of Penske's contract conditions with Belle Isle. Gossage already said no to Texas. Vegas offered and Indycar said no.
9beers: How does Indy car stay in business? With the exception of a few races, the stands are 3/4 empty.
WhoIsWillo: Yeah, I imagine they figured it was hard enough to get the drivers to Texas, was going to be impossible to get them to Vegas. I know that Pocono is talking with IndyCar, but I imagine that's about next year.
Outtaphase: The best analysis I've heard is that the drivers can complain, and Indycar nods and listens, but with X seats and Y drivers wanting a ride, they will show up and drive where they're told at the end of the day. But saying no to Vegas seems obvious to me.
WhoIsWillo: Running an IndyCar race without Will Power, Dario Franchitti, Tony Kanaan and Scott Dixon would be exceedingly silly.
Dumb-Ass-Monkey: Damn, Jamie Little is getting FAT
WhoIsWillo: Standings actually filled in pretty well. Kind of surprised.
Jensaarai: Not even having daddy promote the race can save Marco from his own inconsistency.
Jensaarai: Will Power's turbo seems to be set to whine.
9beers: Anybody happen to know the how much money the winner gets? How does the prize money compare to a NASCAR race?
