      A couple days after this post we were in the 90s. We have summer and a short winter. No spring or fall.

      Felix has the drive that some of the front runners have been missing in this series.

      Andretti is off strategy right? That should hold up Power so the Ganassi boys could pounce.

      But I really hope Andretti has some good results this year. You can't count him out at Indy though. He was formidable during the Crap Wagon era

      Andretti is off strategy. Now the broadcast is off the air.

      Did Josef lose a fight?

      What’s up with the “braces”? What happened to his $ million smile?

      EDIT:

      He’s in process of fixing jaw issues...which includes a replacement tooth. He’s basically starting over with dental work....from when he was in his teens.

      Dan Patrick will co-host the NBC crew for the Indy500. Luckily I don't have to listen to it from the inside of Turn 1.

      Indy has "no track limits" at COTA. It made for an interesting start!

      I like the in car camera view Indy has, you can see the driver's legs and arms and a good view of the track ahead.

      How about Colton??!!!!

      The chassis-specialist on our race team was Colton's karting coach. I can't wait to hear his side of this in the morning!!!

      Great win for Colton. Saw the first half of the race, had to take off for the afternoon, and before I could catch up on the DVR, a sports highlight popped onto the screen about the win.

      When I heard about the track limit rule, or the lack of it, I was like, oh, so IndyCar won't be a stick in the mud like F1. But then I watched the race. Wow, the line they took on the penultimate corner. It was like if that corner had an alternate line. But on the run-off area.

      OK, if a driver was wheel-to-wheel with another competitor and a driver is forced into the run-off area, then whateves. But taking an alternate line through the run-off area?

      And is Simon Pagenaud's contract up this year? I recall the commentators saying thst Roger Penske has his eyes on Rossi. I could totally see Roger making an offer to Rossi.

      ....and Graham on the front row too!!!!!!!!

      Happy for Bobby Rahal and his team!

      Interesting track and pit lane empties at a good spot on the track.

      Rahal had to plug in during a pitstop, holy fek. Like I said about the last Indy race I watched, the in car camera shots are awesome.

      And damn, amazing spin/save by Will Power there.

      Bourdais, who is on a two-stop strategy needs to hit his MPG figures. But it seems he can't with Dixon hounding him.

      Bourdais just got help from Hinchcliffe, he's on Dixon's tail, making him defend.
