      Cool Honda commercial, it ends with a CTR, an Si and, um, a Ridgeline

      Then the race comes back and they say "Rahal Honda has stopped on track".

      The yellow pulled Sato back and everybody got tires, so that should set up a good start.

      They told Bordais to save fuel, yet they put him on red tires and he needs to push like hell to take advantage of them.

      Life of a race car driver.

      Damn long yellow, that'll help.

      Yeah, I saw that. Kind if fitting as it's "The Honda Indy Grand Prix Of Alabama", with Honda on the barricades, Honda flags in the grass, Honda commercials and of course that ugly Accord pace car. It would actually be funny as fek if a Chevy won this thing.

      They need more manufacturers in this series.

      Did you notice one of the announcers pronounces Alabama as "Alley Bama"

      7 laps left and Bourdais slid the rear and Dixon gapped him, Bourdais says his tires are toast. Looks like Sato sailed away with this one and the fight for second, third and fourth is over.

      It was good to see and hear David Letterman.

      Congrats to Sato, even with a big off at the end he controlled the race.

      Sato wins seem extra special, at least to me. I always get extra feels when he does. I was at the USGP ‘04 when he got 3rd, crowd went wild for him. Isn’t he the most successful Japanese racer on the international level?

      This is only my second time watching an Indy race this year so I wouldn't know, but Sato definitely owned the race today.

      He did have that spectacular off near the end that I thought was going to cost him, he pulled it together and finished strong. Happy for him, Letterman and Rahal.

      I always liked Dave and remember watching Bobby Rahal race back in the day and Sato was on fire today, happy for the team, glad I caught this one.

      I saw promos for the next race, Long Beach, it looks like it's going to be a blast. I'll try to catch it when it comes on.

      Has anyone seen the lap time difference between F1 and IndyCar at COTA? God damn, it's almost 15secs.

      That's right. Indycar must allow another constructor or two to enter the series for the series to be fully legitimate. AAR, Multimatic, Riley, Penske and others should step up.

      It won't happen. It will drive up the cost too much.

      Let's just say that I have a little more insight into this matter than most people on this site.

      I think it's better to change the rule book so that the car will be faster on the road course. Interestingly, F1 has been criticized for being boring compared to Indy, but at COTA, F1 was a lot more interesting to watch. Visually watching IndyCar going around COTA was almost like seeing things in slow motion compared to F1.

      Another constructor right? And not just a new chassis from Dallara for all the teams to use. The current car (tub) is getting long in the tooth.
